If you are looking for natural relief of a pinched nerve in Walnut Creek California this is the page for you.
It usually starts with a feeling of numbness or tingling or shooting pain into your arm or hand. Then you may end up at your medical physician and he tells you that you have a pinched nerve or you may have been told you have carpal tunnel syndrome. Regardless of what it’s being called the numbness, tingling or pain in your arm or hand may be coming from a different area of your body.
Carpal Tunnel Syndrome (CTS)
If you have tingling and numbness in your hands and arms, there is a good chance you have been diagnosed with Carpal Tunnel Syndrome (CTS). What is the Carpal Tunnel? It is the passageway that protects the main nerve to your hand (the median nerve) and the nine tendons that allow your fingers to move. Carpal Tunnel Syndrome is what happens when this nerve is compressed.
- Difficulty gripping or carrying objects
- Numbness or tingling in the hands
- Numbness or tingling in the fingers
- Pain that extends to the elbow
- Pain in the wrist or hand
- Poor finger coordination
- Muscle deterioration under the thumb
- Weakness in the hands
Any of the above symptoms are signs of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome. Don’t ignore those symptoms. Ignoring them could lead to further complications and reduce your quality of life.
If you are suffering from carpal tunnel syndrome, you are likely seeking relief. Some doctors may recommend surgery to correct the problem which can result in a long painful recovery and doesn’t guarantee results. This is because CTS treatments may not be treating the underlying cause of your pain or other symptoms. This is where the double crush phenomenon comes into play. What is that?
Double crush phenomenon is when a neck problem ends up showing up further down the central nervous system, often in areas such as the shoulder, arm, or wrist. While researchers are still running trials, double crush syndrome clearly explains why carpal tunnel syndrome treatments don’t always work. If the underlying cause of the problem is in the neck, then treatment needs to be focused there. This is where upper cervical chiropractic can prove beneficial.
