Carpal tunnel occurs when the median nerve is compressed where it passes through the wrist. There could be many possible causes but the most common cause is due to overuse which results in inflammation. Chiropractic care is very helpful for carpal tunnel injuries. Your chiropractor will take a full history and give a thorough examination of your carpal tunnel and other injuries and complaints. He will develop an appropriate course of treatment including chiropractic care, diagnostic imaging, and referrals to other medical professionals as needed.
