Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

office worker wrist painThe repetitive motion associated with typing, texting, performing assembly line work, cooking, or playing instruments can result in carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS). As one of the most widespread conditions in the workplace, the condition can lead to a significant loss of productivity and valuable work days. It affects women three times more than men and can impact virtually anyone, from office and construction workers to musicians and mechanics.


Carpal tunnel syndrome is a leading cause of disability, influencing a vast array of professions. It’s not just limited to physical discomfort but is also linked to psychosocial factors like job dissatisfaction, stress, and poor workplace environment.

The good news is that chiropractic is now one of the leading professions in correcting carpal tunnel non-surgically. Getting help for your CTS begins with a thorough assessment at inBalance Chiropractic and Wellness.

Our Comprehensive Evaluation

If you’re experiencing carpal tunnel syndrome, we encourage you to schedule an appointment with one of our chiropractors for a comprehensive evaluation. The aim is to determine the root cause of nerve compression or entrapment, whether near the elbow, the wrist, or elsewhere.

Entrapment, a key factor in carpal tunnel syndrome, can occur at any of seven different points from the elbow to the wrist. This condition can arise from muscle spasms, ligament stretches, or other issues that exert pressure on a nerve, leading to carpal tunnel-like symptoms. Often, patients are advised to undergo a flexor retinaculum relief procedure, but many find that this surgery does not resolve their symptoms.

By pinpointing the exact cause of nerve pressure, we can direct our treatment to the correct area, ensuring a more targeted and effective approach to alleviate the symptoms of radiculopathy in the hands and fingers.

The Importance of Seeking Prompt Care

If you’re experiencing symptoms of CTS, we want to help you get relief naturally. Early intervention can significantly improve outcomes, reducing the likelihood of surgery and its associated risks.
