CST, or Carpal tunnel syndrome, is a common injury that occurs in millions of people worldwide every year. It is particularly common with people who perform repetitive motions regularly and consistently, like typing or playing the piano. At Mount Royal Village Family Chiropractic, we have extensive experience treating patients with the carpal tunnel syndrome and we understand how it works and how to best treat it.
Are You Suffering Carpal Tunnel Pain?
About Calgary Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
This condition occurs when the median nerve that stretches from the hand to the forearm becomes squeezed or compressed in the wrist area. Patients can experience numbness, tingling, and pain along the forearm. If left untreated, the pain can increase over time and cause issues with mobility.
It isn’t uncommon for people with carpal tunnel syndrome to lose their ability to grip or squeeze.
Our team can help you avoid carpal tunnel or recover from it entirely through exercises, chiropractic treatments, and lifestyle changes. We help reduce the chances of carpal tunnel happening again.
Causes of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
The most common cause of carpal tunnel is repeated stress. Professionals like programmers, writers, editors, pianists, etc. commonly complain of this problem. It can also affect people with rheumatoid arthritis, obesity, diabetes, and hypothyroidism. Many women develop carpal tunnel syndrome during pregnancy, and require prompt treatment.
It is never a good idea to ignore pain or discomfort, but it can be especially risky if you ignore the pain from carpal tunnel syndrome. This condition can worsen over time and repeatedly return if it isn’t treated correctly. We always encourage our patients to seek treatment early, since it is much easier to manage at this stage.
