Carpal Tunnel Treatment in San Jose

person with wrist painCarpal tunnel syndrome (CTS) is a common neurological disorder that affects millions of Americans. The carpal tunnel, located at the bottom part of the wrist, is where the median nerve passes through. Due to factors such as misalignment of the wrist bones or repetitive injuries caused by activities like prolonged computer use or high-pressure activities like bike riding or motorcycle riding, patients can develop carpal tunnel.

Recognizing the Symptoms

CTS occurs when the median nerve in the wrist is compressed, leading to various symptoms. These symptoms can range from mild to severe, causing numbness and tingling in the fingers. Patients may experience this discomfort throughout the day, primarily in the palm area and throughout the entire hand.

How We Can Help

At New Hope Chiropractic, our goal is to provide effective treatment and relief for individuals suffering from carpal tunnel. We start by identifying the source of impingement. If the compression is totally in the carpal tunnel area, we employ myofascial release techniques to alleviate tension in the affected area.

In some cases, CTS symptoms may actually stem from the neck area. In such instances, we adjust to relieve pressure on the nerve in the neck. We also encounter situations where carpal tunnel syndrome is caused by a combination of factors involving both the wrist and the neck.

Our chiropractors ensure a proper examination, including imaging if necessary, to deliver an accurate diagnosis and effective treatment plan tailored to each patient’s needs.

Frequently Asked Questions

Are there ways to manage the pain at home?

Yes, we provide patients with specific stretches that target the forearm muscles to help alleviate pain. Additionally, we offer ergonomic recommendations to ensure patients maintain ideal wrist positions during their work or daily activities. Lifestyle changes may also be recommended as they can contribute to CTS.

How do patients know if they have carpal tunnel?

Diagnosing CTS over the phone is challenging due to the need for a thorough examination. We highly recommend patients come in for an appointment if they experience numbness and tingling in their hands. Early diagnosis and treatment are crucial, especially for individuals such as Silicon Valley workers, who often engage in computer-intensive work.
