Our society today, we are using computers, phones, and tablets constantly both at work and at home. Many people are diagnosed with carpal tunnel syndrome, or have some kind of wrist pain. However, carpal tunnel syndrome is being over-diagnosed from some of the doctors. Hand diagrams, nerve conduction testing, or strength testing are good tests, but most of them does not count the neck into the examination. Due to the fact that patients are involved with repetitive work with technologies, our neck curves, and postures are altered most of the time. The reason why we look at the neck curve is because the nerve that connects to the wrist comes from the neck. This altered neck curve, which is misalignment of the neck, decreases in nerve function on a nerve that is going to the wrist. That results in pain, weakness, or numbness at the wrists or hands. Therefore, you need to address the neck curve first before you act on doing a surgery on the wrist.
The important question is how do I get rid of misalignment? Better question is, how do I correct my neck curve? Chiropractic care is the answer for that question, but not just a regular chiropractic care. Corrective chiropractic is what you need. Doctor who is certified at chiropractic biophysics is the one you should look for. These are doctors who were trained extra to achieve such skills to correct the curvature of the spine. They will be able to show you pre and post x-rays to determine the curve has been corrected effectively. These doctors use mirror-imaging adjustments, and extension tractions to correct the curvature of the spine. There is case study that is attached to assist this blog.
