Carpal Tunnel Syndrome is a painful condition that happens when the median nerve in your wrist is compressed or irritated due to swelling of the surrounding tissues in the carpal tunnel. This is one of the most common conditions affecting the nerves.

The structures in your wrist form a narrow passageway known as the carpal tunnel. The median nerve, a very important nerve that controls sensation and motion in several of your fingers runs through this space. When there is a blockage within the carpal tunnel, this nerve doesn’t transmit the signals between the brain and these fingers leading to the lapse in functionality that is synonymous with carpal tunnel syndrome.
Carpal tunnel syndrome may go away without treatment, however this is rare. It is important to seek medical treatment when experiencing symptoms of carpal tunnel syndrome.
Chiropractic care is non-invasive, natural, and holistic. When possible, if you are in early stages of carpal tunnel syndrome, we highly recommend chiropractic care before you consider any invasive measures such as surgery.
Yes! Some exercises can help prevent and relieve carpal tunnel syndrome. They are usually a series of stretches that act on the neck, arms and wrists. Our chiropractor will recommend which exercise to do and how often you should do them.

Dr. Mike is personable and listens to his patients. My primary interaction with him was with one of my wrestlers that was tryin to get back on the mat after numerous surgeries. He tried and tried and continued to have problems with his shoulder. He was sidelined for a good portion of his senior year. Dr. Mike started working with him a couples days a week. This last for for about 8 weeks. He was ultimately able to compete and placed 3rd in the state tournament. What is truly unique is that he had gone to numerous other experts and the results were always the same. It was different with Dr. mike and so were the results. This guy does it right and gets results! I strongly recommend him.
