Carpal Tunnel in Columbia

Carpal Tunnel Syndrome is usually accompanied by sensations of burning, pain, tingling, or swelling in the forearm or palm of the hands and extends into the first three fingers and the thumb. Occasionally people also report a feeling of swelling in the hand even when no swelling is present. Patients commonly experience weakness in the affected hand and have difficulty with picking up small objects. This condition can have a major impact on a person's lifestyle and in some sever cases, if left untreated, the damage to the median nerve can cause permanent loss of movement in the hand.

What is the Cause of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome?

Traditionally, Carpal Tunnel treatment has been limited to splints, prescription medications, standard physical therapy and surgeries to the wrist. Typically they prove ineffective because they fail to address the nerve compression in the forearm or hand. Wrist surgery does not address the primary median nerve compression, and once they resume activities after 6 weeks of not using their hands, the nerve symptoms reappear. When left untreated, or when unsuccessfully treated, people are forced to adapt their lifestyles to accommodate this debilitating issue. This may include quitting one's job and needing help with basic everyday living.

Fortunately, many people in Columbia are finding long-term relief from Carpal Tunnel Syndrome through Active Release therapy to the involved tissues coupled with Chiropractic treatment as needed. Active Release is the "gold standard" in soft tissue care which releases and restores the involved tissues. This approach truly addresses the underlying cause of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome. At Renick Chiropractic & Soft Tissue Clinic, Dr. Renick will perform an evaluation of your condition and formulate an individualized treatment plan that will work to correct nerve interference in the soft tissues or spine and restore you to an optimal state of health.
