A man from Dar Es Salaam suffers tingling and numbness and radiating pain from carpal tunnel syndrome and needs chiropractic therapy.

What’s known as Carpal Tunnel Syndrome is actually a collection of multiple symptoms affecting the carpal tunnel of the wrist, extending from the base of your wrist into your lower palm and even into the thumbs, sometimes. It mainly occurs in both hands, and genetics can play a significant role in whether someone will suffer from it or not.

Most who suffer from Carpal tunnel syndrome do not feel pain but rather a numbness that can become so intense that it is as disruptive as pain. A tingling sensation is also common in carpal tunnel syndrome. Since the symptoms typically increase at night, it can wreak havoc on the patient’s sleep cycle, compounding the problem.

Things like wrist fractures and arthritis can cause or exacerbate carpal tunnel syndrome in those genetically predisposed to develop it. However, the vast majority of carpal tunnel cases we see in Dar Es Salaam result from repetitive work activities like typing on a keyboard or extensive handwork. When your work involves factors like wrist extension, wrist flexion, vibration, hand force, and all these in repetition, you’ll have a greater chance of developing carpal tunnel syndrome, even if you aren’t genetically predisposed.

Carpal tunnel is easily treated, even cured in some instances, by chiropractic therapy. Other medical fields will recommend corticosteroid injections or pain meds, which offer minimal results with this condition. Another procedure you’ll hear will help is surgery, which usually involves cutting the transverse carpal ligament. This is a very risky, invasive and expensive surgery that may or may not give you the results you seek.

Through non-invasive myofascial techniques and ergonomic coaching, chiropractors have been successfully treating carpal tunnel syndrome for decades. Dr. David and Dr. Danielle have been certified, accredited Chiropractors for many years and have gained extensive experience in treating a wide range of ailments, including carpal tunnel syndrome.
