Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

Repetitive hand and wrist motion.

Every day, assembly line workers, keyboard
operators, grocery store clerks, and many
others, receive micro-traumas to their hands
and wrists. Vibration and repetitive motions,
when combined with spinal problems and other
joint dysfunction, can result in a condition known
as carpal tunnel syndrome.

Symptoms may include hand pain, hand numbness,
tingling, hand weakness, or a loss of strength in the hands.

If placing your hands back to back produces an increase in numbness, tingling or pain,
you could have a carpal tunnel problem.

Have someone try to pull your thumb and finger apart.
If your fingers seem weak, it could be related to a carpal tunnel problem.

Specific tests will be performed to see if spinal nerves are involved. Specific chiropractic
adjustments can help return malfunctioning joints to a more normal motion and
position.

If you have an Carpal Tunnel emergency, if you suffer a hand, finger or upper extremity injury including shoulder or elbow injuries, whether it is soft tissue or a broken bone, call Dr. Donald Ajlouni immediately at (408) 224-8616 (in san Jose) 24 hours a day.

How WE can help.

The major nerve controlling the thumb, index, and parts of the middle, and ring finger
is called the median nerve. From the tip of your fingers, it travels through the bones in
your wrist, past your elbow, up your arm, through your shoulder and neck, and finally to
your spinal cord. Problems can develop in one or more of these areas.

The carpal “tunnel” is formed by bones in the wrist. The median nerve, tendons, and
blood vessels pass through this opening. If one or more of the bones forming this
tunnel should “collapse”, inflammation, nerve pressure, and painful symptoms can
result.

The median nerve connects to the spinal cord through openings between several bones
in the lower neck. When these spinal bones lose their normal motion or position, they
can cause problems in the fingers and wrist.

After a thorough examination, your chiropractic doctor will perform specific adjustments
where needed, to help normalize structure and reduce nerve irritation. When given
time, conservative, chiropractic care has produced excellent results with carpal tunnel
problems—without drugs or surgery.




THE  CHIROPRACTIC  LIFESTYLE

Chiropractors are experts in the care of the bones, nerves, muscles and connective
tissues that make up about 60% of your body. All of the joints in your body are part of
this musculo-skeletal system and its optimal function is necessary for overall good
health. Ask your Doctor of Chiropractic for more information about a care program that
may include specific spinal adjustments, exercise recommendations, nutritional advice
or other conservative methods of care based on your health history, age, current
condition and lifestyle.
