Selden and Coram, NY natural carpal tunnel treatmentDr. BenEliyahu sees a lot of people troubled with carpal tunnel syndrome in our busy Selden and Coram, NY chiropractic office. While some people think that the origin of this wrist-related pain is muscular, it's actually a condition that arises from the nerves--and not just the nerves in your hands.

Research Proves Chiropractic Helps With Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

Recent research printed in the Journal of Orthopaedic & Sports Physical Therapy assessed 71 women between the ages of 35 and 59 who were diagnosed with carpal tunnel syndrome. Upon studying the subjects' neck range of motion, the doctors found that the women had less cervical flexibility when compared to a healthy control group.

Furthermore, they also observed that the degree of the women's reported carpal tunnel pain was connected to the lateral flexion of the cervical spine. In other words, the less range of motion in the neck area, the greater the level of pain.

This study is extremely important, as you cannot successfully treat a condition until you fully understand its source. By realizing that the root of carpal tunnel pain is in the neck, this means that natural approaches like chiropractic can often restore normal function, eliminating the need for risky surgical procedures.
