Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

Chiropractic Care for Carpal Tunnel Syndrome in Asheville

Carpal Tunnel, Asheville Chiropractor

Problems with nerves in your body cause symptoms and complications in a variety of different areas. Since a nerve sends signals to your brain from specific areas of the body, a problem with the nerve means you experience discomfort and complications with the area. When you develop carpal tunnel syndrome, you want to take measures to address the problems with the nerve causing the symptoms.

What is Carpal Tunnel Syndrome?

Carpal tunnel syndrome refers to problems in your hand because of pressure along the median nerve in the wrist. Generally, you notice an odd feeling in your hand that worsens over time or persists for extended periods.

By addressing the pressure build up in the wrist, your Asheville chiropractor reduces the discomfort caused by the nerve. Depending on the severity of your symptoms, Dr. Lawson develops a plan of action to improve your situation and encourage the healing process. We always evaluate the situation and your symptoms before making recommendations for a treatment process. 

Symptoms of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

While the details of a treatment plan depend on the severity of carpal tunnel syndrome, certain signs and symptoms develop in any situation. Recognizing common signs of the problem help you address the situation and improve your health.

Symptoms associated with the condition include:

  • A tingling sensation in your hand, which is similar to cutting off the circulation to the area
  • Numbness in the hand
  • Weakness in the hand
  • Pain in your fingers
  • Symptoms developing in the thumb, fore-finger, middle finger and half of the ring finger

It is not carpal tunnel if the symptoms develop in the pinky of your hand because a different nerve provides feeling to the pinky; however, if the symptoms develop in your other fingers or your hand in general, it may relate to carpal tunnel syndrome.

Treatment Options for Carpal Tunnel Syndrome in Asheville, NC

Lawson Chiropractic in Asheville provides treatment by addressing the pressure in your wrist or along the nerve. Since the pressure develops in different areas, the exact location of the problem varies. We use up-to-date tools and strategies to evaluate the discomfort and identify the areas with potential pressure build up.

Generally, we recommend seeking treatment early because it allows us to address the symptoms in an efficient manner and prevent more drastic solutions.  At Lawson Chiropractic, our treatment strategy focuses on non-invasive solutions like wrist and joint adjustments. We also teach exercises and stretches that help alleviate the discomfort.

At an early stage, we may suggest resting your hands and wrist or wearing a brace to limit movements. The limited movement allows your wrist to heal and ultimately reduces the discomfort in your hand. We provide recommendations based on the severity of your symptoms, so specific details vary.

Developing pain or tingling sensations in your hands may interfere with your lifestyle. Since the problem stems from a variety of different situations, an appropriate treatment strategy varies between individuals. By working with Lawson Chiropractic, you focus on recovery and healing through non-invasive and natural strategies.

  • "I completely and totally rely on Dr. Sarah and Dr. Kenton to keep me upright and pain free! Not only do they keep my back "in line" and functioning so that I can work and play as much as I want, they always treat me like I'm the most special patient they have. It doesn't matter when I call, they always get me into their office as soon as possible when I am having a problem. *I do not believe that I would be as healthy today without the care I recieve at Lawson Chiropractic* --- they are the absolute best and I love them both!!!"
