Active Health & Wellness: Your Solution for Carpal Tunnel Syndrome in Boise and Eagle, Idaho

Understanding Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

Carpal Tunnel Syndrome (CTS) is a common condition resulting from repetitive motions such as typing, texting, or assembly line work. These repetitive actions can lead to pain, tingling, or numbness in the fingers or hand, and even weakness in the hand. What many people don’t realize is that the root cause of their wrist problem may be due to functional changes in the neck, shoulder, elbow, or wrist joints.

Our Natural Approach to Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

At Active Health & Wellness, we take a holistic approach to treating Carpal Tunnel Syndrome. Our method involves gentle chiropractic care targeting the problematic wrist and elbow, as well as adjustments to your upper spine. This comprehensive approach addresses the underlying causes of CTS, not just the symptoms.

What to Expect from Our Treatment

  • Chiropractic Adjustments: Gentle adjustments to the wrist, elbow, and upper spine to correct misalignments and improve joint function.
  • Rest and Immobilization: Advising rest for the affected arm and using a splint or brace to immobilize the area when necessary.
  • Cryotherapy: Applying very low temp to decrease inflammation and alleviate pain.
  • PEMF Therapy: Pulsing an electromagnetic field in the area of the problem to accelerate healing of tissue.

Frequently Asked Questions

Should I Wear a Wrist Brace for My CTS?

A wrist brace is often prescribed to help protect the wrist and keep it immobilized. While a brace can alleviate some symptoms, it doesn’t address the malfunctioning joints causing the problem. Chiropractic care focuses on the root cause, offering a more comprehensive solution.

How Many Visits Will I Need?

The number of visits needed can vary. Not everyone will see a difference in just one visit. Some patients may require multiple visits to achieve significant improvement.

I’ve Previously Had Surgery for My CTS; Can Chiropractic Still Benefit Me?

If you’ve had surgery for CTS in the past, chiropractic care might not be as beneficial or may take more treatments, as surgery alters your body’s original structure. That’s why we encourage those with CTS to seek chiropractic care before considering surgery.
