Carpal tunnel syndrome is simple when broken down. Carpel means wrist, tunnel well that means tunnel and syndrome is multiple symptoms. So the wrist bone tunnel is squeezing the nerve (median nerve) that goes through it. So patients think they need surgery. Not so fast. All surgery does is cut the tendon and then you have to wear a splint and not use it.
When I treat carpal tunnel i gently re position the wrist bones. The wrist will flatten out with use and cause pressure on the nerve through the flattening process. Gentle movements done by a trained chiropractor can un flatten the wrist. We then do a simple stabilization with tape. We then give you very simple re training and also may talk about life style changes like position of hands on key board.
