Within a year or two after surgery, most people with carpal tunnel syndrome experience the familiar pains all over again. Surgery helps the pinched median nerve in the wrist, but does not necessarily solve the underlying problems. Chiropractic treatment for CTS may be the answer you’ve been looking for to hit the reset button and alleviate the pain.
Back and Neck Pain Center offers chiropractic care for carpal tunnel syndrome, including treatment of the hand and wrist as well as neck and spine adjustments that can treat the condition where it starts.

The carpal tunnel is where a bundle of tendons and the median nerve run through your wrist. The median nerve starts all the way up in your shoulder, passes through the carpal tunnel, and branches out into nerves in your fingers.
Carpal tunnel syndrome is caused by pinching or compression of the median nerve. People often think of typing or repetitive manual tasks as the cause of CTS, but it could be due to a neck injury, poor posture, or another factor not found in the wrist itself. A subluxation in the spine may be to blame, particularly if you also have bouts of neck or shoulder pain.
Some people are predisposed to carpal tunnel pain because of a narrow tunnel, arthritis, or other environmental or physical condition. Our staff will discuss all the relevant factors to make sure we treat the whole problem.
Chiropractic adjustments can be applied to any joints in the body. While carpal tunnel syndrome often starts with an injury or repetitive workplace task involving the wrist, it can also originate in the neck, spine, or arm.
Before turning to drugs or surgery for carpal tunnel syndrome, it’s well worth exploring the more conservative approach of chiropractic care. A spinal manipulation or adjustment to the shoulder, elbow, or wrist can free the median nerve from the pressure causing your symptoms.
If your condition does require medication or surgery, Dr. Venis will explain the options and refer you to a specialist in those areas.
