Fortunately, the percentage of people who have received vaccinations for Covid-19 means that most schools are once again able to open. For many students and teachers, learning has taken place remotely for about a year and a half, and for most students and teachers, little to no attention was paid to the ergonomics of the remote learning environment. Makeshift offices and desks have made for challenging conditions in which to teach and learn. As most students and teachers struggled to adapt to the new learning environment, it is likely that many individuals’ bodies felt the impact of sub-optimal ergonomics, resulting in any number of physical issues. One common issue, which is likely to increase in frequency as students and teachers re-enter their classrooms, is carpal tunnel syndrome.
Carpal Tunnel Syndrome Is Painful
Carpal tunnel syndrome is a painful condition, felt primarily in the wrist and hands, that results from the impingement of nerves that run down from the top of the forearm into our hands. Typing at a computer, especially when one’s workspace encourages poor posture and slouching, can put undue pressure on the hands, wrists, forearms, upper arms, shoulders, and back muscles. When the stress on the nerves that run from the arms into the hands becomes great enough, inflammation can cause those nerves to be compressed, which results in discomfort at a minimum, pain in many cases, and debilitation of the hands in extreme cases.
Caron Chiropractic can provide relief and healing from the pain of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome. In some cases, we can help by providing more specific and often minor adjustments to your workstation and your posture. Simple measures such as those can provide some immediate relief from Carpal Tunnel Syndrome. Some people, however, will need more than adjustments to their work environments in order to make a full recovery from Carpal Tunnel Syndrome. Our treatment plan for Carpal Tunnel Syndrome will be individualized for you, and our approach will depend on the specific circumstances of your condition. We can suggest exercises and stretches in addition to spinal adjustments that will provide you with long-lasting relief.
Chiropractic Treatment For Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
Because chiropractic care is largely built on achieving balance between and among the systems of our bodies, it is naturally good at restoring balance to and relieving the pressure that builds up on nerves and their pathways. So, chiropractic care is ideally suited to relieve the discomfort caused by Carpal Tunnel Syndrome.
