South Main Chiropractic: Your Solution for Carpal Tunnel Syndrome in Lexington, NC

Understanding Carpal Tunnel Syndrome (CTS)

At South Main Chiropractic in Lexington, NC, we understand the complexities of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome (CTS). This condition commonly arises from repetitive strain due to overuse of the hands and wrists over time. It’s often seen in those who type, text, or perform assembly line work regularly. Symptoms typically include tingling or numbness in the fingers or hand, and in some cases, weakness in the hand. However, what many people don’t realize is that the root cause of CTS might be linked to functional changes in the neck, shoulder, elbow, or wrist joints.

Our Natural Approach to Treating CTS

Our approach at South Main Chiropractic is holistic and patient-focused. We provide gentle chiropractic care to not only address the symptoms in your wrist and elbow but also to adjust your upper spine for overall wellness. In addition to chiropractic adjustments, we may recommend resting the affected arm, applying cold to reduce inflammation, and performing specific exercises. In some cases, wearing a splint or brace to immobilize the area may also be beneficial.

Specialized Techniques for CTS Treatment

Specific Adjustments and Muscle Work: Tailored to each patient’s needs to alleviate discomfort and restore function.
Laser and Shockwave Treatments: Innovative therapies that promote healing and reduce pain.
Acupuncture: A complementary treatment that relaxes tight tissues and encourages healing, enhancing the overall effectiveness of our chiropractic care.

Frequently Asked Questions

Should I wear a wrist brace for my CTS?

While a brace can alleviate symptoms by immobilizing the wrist, it doesn’t address the underlying joint issues. Our chiropractic care focuses on treating the root cause.

How many visits will I need?

The healing process varies for each individual. While some may notice improvements within 2-4 treatments, others might need a few more sessions.

What about post-surgery patients?

If you’ve had surgery for CTS, chiropractic care might not be as beneficial due to the altered state of your body post-surgery. That’s why we recommend exploring chiropractic solutions before considering surgery.

How does acupuncture help CTS?

Acupuncture complements our chiropractic treatments by helping to relax tight tissues and promote healing, offering a more holistic approach to CTS management.
