Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

Expertly treating pain in the Lexington, KY area

Stinson Chiropractic Center adopts a comprehensive approach to alleviate Carpal Tunnel Syndrome (CTS), incorporating chiropractic care and advanced therapies such as K-Laser Therapy. Here's how our integrated approach can benefit individuals dealing with CTS:

Chiropractic Assessment:

  • Skilled chiropractors at Stinson Chiropractic Center focus on the alignment of the wrist, hand, and upper spine to reduce pressure on the median nerve.
  • Adjustments may help improve joint function and reduce inflammation around the carpal tunnel.

Wrist and Hand Exercises:

  • Customized exercise programs are designed to strengthen and stretch the muscles and tendons around the wrist, promoting flexibility and reducing pressure on the median nerve.

Ergonomic Assessment:

  • The center conducts ergonomic assessments to identify and address factors contributing to CTS, especially in workplace settings. This includes recommendations for proper wrist positioning and breaks during repetitive tasks.

K-Laser Therapy:

  • K-Laser Therapy is a key component of the treatment plan for CTS. This non-invasive therapy uses low-level laser light to stimulate cellular activity, reduce inflammation, and promote healing.
  • K-Laser Therapy may specifically target the carpal tunnel area, providing relief from pain and improving the overall condition.

Soft Tissue Therapies:

  • Soft tissue techniques, including massage and myofascial release, are employed to address muscle tension and reduce pressure on the median nerve within the carpal tunnel.

Wrist Splints:

  • When appropriate, Stinson Chiropractic Center may recommend wrist splints to provide support and maintain proper wrist alignment, especially during activities that may exacerbate CTS symptoms.

Patient Education:

  • Patients receive education on ergonomics, lifestyle modifications, and self-care practices to manage and prevent CTS symptoms. This empowers individuals to take an active role in their recovery.

Collaboration with Healthcare Professionals:

  • In cases requiring additional expertise, the center collaborates with healthcare professionals such as orthopedic specialists or hand surgeons to ensure a well-coordinated approach to CTS management.

By combining traditional chiropractic care with advanced therapies and addressing the specific needs of individuals with Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, Stinson Chiropractic Center aims to provide effective relief, enhance wrist function, and promote an improved quality of life for those dealing with CTS.
