Do Chiropractors treat Carpel Tunnel?
Absolutely! Carpel tunnel is a major cause of hand numbness. The numbness occurs when the tendons to the hand get squeezed, pinched and inflamed when they pass through the retinaculum (circular band) of the wrist.
Stretching the muscle, the muscle in the forearm using Active Release Techniques (ART) will alleviate the tension on the tendons and allow them to pass through the retinaculum without irritation and alleviate the carpel tunnel symptoms.
