Happens When Your Median Nerve Is Compressed

Carpal Tunnel Syndrome occurs when there is a compression of the median nerve in your wrist. Its symptoms can range from pain, electric shock sensations, numbness and tingling, and even a loss of wrist strength. Chiropractors are musculoskeletal healthcare experts trained to treat Carpal Tunnel Syndrome without the need for medication and surgery.

What You Need to Know

The median nerve allows you to feel sensation in your fingers and palm, and also allows you to contract the muscles of your hand! If you have a deskbound job, your symptoms are likely caused by repetitive stress to the wrist from computer use. Other common causes include sports injuries, manual labour, and repetitive stress from other actions such as cooking with a wok or tampering coffee.

Early symptoms of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome are intermittent numbness and tingling in the hands, electric shock or burning sensations. Over time, these symptoms may become constant and you may start to notice a weakness in wrist or grip strength as well (i.e. difficulty opening a jar).

The bad news is that your symptoms are likely to worsen. While the symptoms do pass quickly in the early stages, the symptoms tend to return. It is unlikely for the symptoms you are experiencing to resolve entirely without professional help. The good news is that chiropractors can help you get better without the risk of medication and surgery.

We offer a variety of manual therapy and active care to help you get better. Techniques such as Research has demonstrated that Neurodynamic Mobilisation is effective at treating nerve-associated symptoms such as those seen in Carpal Tunnel Syndrome. If the muscles of your wrist are causing your symptoms, techniques such as Dry Needling have been shown to give good results.

Once your symptoms are taken care of, your chiropractic will provide ergonomics advice to reduce the stress on your wrist. Your chiropractic will also help you with the rehabilitation necessary to improve the biomechanics of your wrist movement and to increase your wrist resilience.
