Find out how a carpal tunnel syndrome can be treated by a chiropractor.

What Causes Carpal Tunnel Syndrome (CTS) ? There is a narrow tunnel in your wrist, where a nerve and tendons go through. The nerve that goes through this tunnel supplies the feeling to the palm side of your hand and fingers. Swelling or irritation in the wrist can put pressure on this nerve and cause Carpal Tunnel Syndrome. Of course, some people have a higher risk in developing Carpal Tunnel syndrome than others. Generally, you should consider yourself to be at risk of developing CTS if you perform repetitive movements of the wrist and hand. The most common is those that type on the computer keyboard every day. Some other common repetitive movements that can cause people to have CTS include sewing, driving, writing, painting, using tools, playing instruments etc. Generally speaking, Carpal Tunnel Syndrome is more common in women rather than men. Carpal Tunnel Syndrome during pregnancy is very common as well due to the increased swelling and water retention. That water retention puts more pressure in the nerve and pregnant ladies develop carpal tunnel syndrome. People with prior trauma of the wrist area have a bigger chance of developing CTS, too. Fluid buildup that occurs during pregnancy, as well as specific conditions like diabetes, obesity or Arthritis are all increasing the risk of developing Carpal Tunnel Syndrome. Be sure to notify our Chiropractor in Singapore about these preexisting conditions.
