Carpal Tunnel Treatment in Overland Park
Pain traveling into your hand is not normal, and is often a sign of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome. As our society spends more time working at a desk, the incidence for carpal tunnel syndrome has increased due to poor posture and strain on our bodies. Even pins-and-needles or tingling in your fingers is a sign that carpal tunnel syndrome may be in the early stages. When looking for carpal tunnel treatment in Overland Park or in the KC area, refer to Dr. Nigus’ gentle treatment methods using chiropractic and acupuncture to get excellent results with your conditions.
Carpal tunnel syndrome is caused by compression of nerve fibers, but this can occur in many places. The wrist and neck are the most common causes for carpal tunnel syndrome. The danger with treating carpal tunnel syndrome is that we focus on the wrist and the area of pain, but neglect to treat the nerve compression in the neck. This is why some people have surgery on the carpal tunnel and still have symptoms afterwards. When surgeons recommend spinal surgery at the neck, it is not advised to have spinal surgery without first trying conservative treatment. This is especially true if you experience neck pain or stiffness in addition to carpal tunnel syndrome.
