Do you have a constant tingling or numbness in your hand and wrist? Do you receive sudden sharp and piercing pains in your wrist and arm? If so, it’s possible that it’s not just minor cramps you’re experiencing but rather a painful progressive condition called Carpal Tunnel Syndrome. Carpal Tunnel Syndrome is caused by a compression of one of the most important nerves in the wrist, the median nerve. The median nerve, which runs from the forearm into the palm, is know for controlling feelings within the palm and fingers. In addition, it controls small muscle movements in the hand. Carpal Tunnel Syndrome is caused by the cavity that houses the median nerve, the carpal tunnel cavity, compressing on the median nerve.
The compression of the carpal tunnel cavity can cause painful sensations in the hand and wrist. In addition, it can result in pain and weakness that radiates up throughout the arm. These symptoms usually start slowly with minor burning or tingling, but then progress into loss of sensation in the hand and the decrease of grip strength. If you’re living with the pain and uncomfortable symptoms of carpal tunnel, it’s time to get in touch with Bolingbrook Family Chiropractic.
