What are the symptoms of carpal tunnel?

Carpal tunnel syndrome causes a feeling of numbness and pain in the hand and wrist.

If you are experiencing the symptoms of carpal tunnel, you may have noticed that the signs started gradually. Symptoms usually begin with burning, itching, or a tingling numb feeling in the thumb and index fingers (not the little finger). These sensations may seem to travel from the wrist up the arm. Another potential symptom of carpal tunnel syndrome is weakness felt in the hand. This feeling may result in the dropping of objects.

How can the Goldsboro Spine Center Experts treat my carpal tunnel?

The Goldsboro Spine Center Experts will examine your hand and wrist and perform diagnostic testing to determine the nature of the problem, and possibly rule out other conditions. Once the presence of carpal tunnel syndrome is confirmed, a treatment plan must be devised. Carpal tunnel syndrome progressively worsens without treatment.

Your carpal tunnel syndrome may be effectively treated with chiropractic in which the chiropractor manipulates the wrist, elbow, and upper spine to improve range of motion and relieve pain. Massage has also been found helpful in the treatment of carpal tunnel.
