Here at Circle Chiropractic Center, our chiropractor in Fairfax, Dr. Christopher Frey, understands just how uncomfortable and debilitating carpal tunnel syndrome can be. Our very own Dr. Christopher Frey has been proudly serving the surrounding areas for more than 35 years, providing a wide range of drug-free, non-invasive, and natural treatment options for those in pain. One of the many conditions we treat here in our office is that of carpal tunnel syndrome, which occurs when a nerve is pinched in the wrist and causes numbness and tingling throughout the hand.
Carpal tunnel syndrome is most common in those who work with their hands—especially those who spend a lot of their time typing on a keyboard. The good news is that there are some steps you can take to prevent carpal tunnel syndrome while working with your hands. For starters, always be aware of repeated motions you're making with your hands and/or fingers, and find ways to spread motion and pressure evenly throughout each hand. While typing at a computer, this may mean adjusting the height of your chair in relation to your desk or investing in a cushioned pad for your wrists to rest while you type.
If you begin to experience any symptoms of carpal tunnel syndrome, we encourage you to schedule an appointment with our chiropractor. Common symptoms include tingling and/or numbness in all or part of the hand, as well as pain that radiates along the wrist or part of the arm. These symptoms may come and go, but tend to be worse at night and when first waking up in the morning.
Chiropractic care in the form of spinal adjustments and other therapies can help correct poor alignment in the spine, which can relieve pressure on nerves and help with symptoms of carpal tunnel.
To schedule an appointment, give Circle Chiropractic Center, P.C. a call at (703) 385-2990.
