The most common reason people develop carpal tunnel is due to occupations that involve working with their hands or manual work on a regular basis for years. This condition can seemingly come out of nowhere for some patients, and if left untreated, can progressively worsen over time. While it often seems to come about with no obvious cause, frequently the cause is a pinched or irritated nerve in the upper cervical area of the spine, which, when corrected, can lead to pain relief and symptom reduction for many patients. While most doctors will recommend surgeries, or invasive treatments like steroid shots, our chiropractors in Athens can help your body heal the way it was intended to, with gentler, non invasive procedures.
Chiropractic treatment in Athens, Georgia is one of the best ways for our patients suffering with carpal tunnel to find relief from the pain, tingling, numbness, and uncomfortable sensations associated with the condition. By using upper cervical techniques, our chiropractor at our Watkinsville office can help to reduce inflammation of the nerves or misalignment occuring that can lead to symptoms like these. Occasionally, patients report experiencing symptoms like swelling, and shocks going up the arm or focused in the hand or wrist. Irritated or compromised nerves can explain many conditions like these, and thankfully, many of our patients with carpal tunnel have experienced immense relief when seeking chiropractic treatment at Athens Upper Cervical Chiropractic regularly.
Without treatment, pain from carpal tunnel can increase, and can become permanent. If you or a family member is dealing with this painful condition, it's important to seek treatment as soon as possible. When you call and schedule a complimentary consultation at our Watkinsville office of Athens Upper Cervical Chiropractic, our chiropractor will evaluate you, take some x-rays of your spine and upper cervical neck area, and will determine the best course of treatment for you. Many patients in Athens are seeing chiropractors for carpal tunnel treatment, and are finding relief using non invasive, upper cervical chiropractic treatment, rather than going through painful and invasive surgeries and procedures.
While some patients may need surgery, it is certainly not the first treatment plan we would recommend for people in Watkinsville or Athens dealing with pain from carpal tunnel. Frequently we see patients who have undergone surgery for carpal tunnel, and are still experiencing pain and other symptoms from their condition, and are now looking for alternative measures. Our team at Athens Upper Cervical Chiropractic is here to help you find relief from your pain, without all of the recovery and risk associated with surgery.
