Yes, you should see a chiropractor for Carpal Tunnel Syndrome (CTS). And because where the CTS problem may start, we recommend seeing a chiropractor who is trained in upper cervical chiropractic procedures, who can also release the lower neck, and the upper thoracic spine if necessary.
Why do we recommend recommend chiropractic care for Carpal Tunnel Syndrome?
Because numbness and tingling in the hands is a common sign of a neck (cervical) problem. Even if you use the hands/wrists all day and the problem is blamed on a “repetitive use injury” to the wrist, there can still be an issue in your neck. In fact, the cause of your carpal tunnel syndrome may not even be in your wrist or hands, even though you feel it there.
Do you believe you have carpal tunnel syndrome? Do you have a carpal tunnel diagnosis? Would you like to avoid surgery? Or is your carpal tunnel syndrome not responding to the treatment methods you have already tried?
