Carpal Tunnel Syndrome Treatment From Your Queens Chiropractor
Are your hand and arm feeling numb, tingly, or painful? The problem might very well be carpal tunnel. If you or a loved one is suffering from carpal tunnel syndrome, it’s important to know about the symptoms of this condition and how it can be treated. At Dr. Lee’s Spine Center, we have a great deal of experience providing carpal tunnel treatment and we would be happy to consult with you and create a treatment plan.
What is Carpal Tunnel?
Carpal tunnel syndrome is a malady in which patients tend to experience symptoms ranging from pain to numbness and tingling or weakness. People get carpal tunnel when their nerve is compressed in the carpal tunnel (located on your wrist on the palm side).
What Can Cause Carpal Tunnel?
Pressure on the median nerve in your hand and arm lead to carpal tunnel. The cause is often repetitive motion, such as when using a mouse and typing at your job or at school. Mechanics using tools in a repetitive manner are prone to getting carpal tunnel syndrome too. Medical conditions ranging from injuries, inflammatory illnesses, obesity, pregnancy or menopause can be contributing factors as well.

Dr. Lee will also prescribe exercises that you can do at home to build strength and avoid getting carpal tunnel again in the future.
