CARPAL TUNNEL SYNDROME

Experience Relief from Carpal Tunnel Syndrome with Spinal Care Sydney

Understanding Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

Spinal Care Sydney specializes in chiropractic services to provide effective treatment for a variety of conditions, including Carpal Tunnel Syndrome (CTS). This common neuropathic pain condition is characterized by constant burning pain, intermittent shooting or electric pain, and positive symptoms like paraesthesia, numbness, and dysesthesia. Our experienced chiropractors are here to guide you through a comprehensive treatment plan tailored to your specific needs.

Identifying the Signs and Symptoms of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

At Spinal Care Sydney, our chiropractors will conduct a thorough evaluation of your symptoms, taking into account factors such as age, sex, onset period, duration, and intensity of pain. We utilize the Numerical Rating Scale (NRS) to gauge the severity of your symptoms and assess your ability to perform everyday tasks, such as holding objects and maintaining a healthy sleep pattern.

Assessing Your Medical History

Prior medical history, including previous assessments, treatments, and any underlying conditions like diabetes or a history of hand or wrist fractures, will be carefully considered when designing your treatment plan. Lifestyle factors, such as alcohol consumption and smoking, as well as your occupation and hobbies, will also be taken into account.

Addressing Barriers to Recovery

Our chiropractors will work with you to identify and overcome any barriers to recovery, such as feelings of helplessness or pre-existing health conditions that might impact treatment outcomes. Clear communication and a shared understanding of the treatment process are essential to achieving the best possible results.

Chiropractic Treatment for Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

Spinal Care Sydney offers non-invasive chiropractic treatment for Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, with a focus on gradual improvement over a prescribed course of sessions. Our tailored treatment program consists of two sessions per week for four weeks, allowing you to experience the benefits of chiropractic care without resorting to more invasive procedures like surgery or cortisone injections.

Measuring Treatment Success

We assess treatment success based on the following criteria:

  1. Pain reduction using the NRS
  2. Functional improvement, including better sleep and reduced numbness
  3. Increased ability to hold objects without pain
  4. Cost-effective treatment compared to more invasive options

Alternative Management Options

In some cases, alternative treatments such as medications, immobilization, physical and occupational therapy, or surgical interventions may be recommended. Our chiropractors will discuss all options with you to determine the best course of action for your unique situation.
