Carpal Tunnel Syndrome (CTS) is considered to be a Repetitive Stress Injury. This category of injuries is caused by repetitive motion, such as typing cleaning, or assembly line work. According to the American Chiropractic Association, CTS most often occurs in adults, with women 3 times more likely to develop the syndrome than men.CTS is a problem of the median nerve, which runs from the forearm into the hand. CTS occurs when the median nerve gets compressed in the carpal tunnel, a narrow tunnel in the wrist, made up of bones and soft tissues. A good majority of patients with Carpal Tunnel also have impingement, subluxation of the spin in the upper dorsal spine, causing back or neck pain in the lower part of the neck.
Patients may notice numbness in hands and fingers, or even weakness in the hands. Chiropractic adjustments will help relieve pressure off of those nerves in the neck and back and will correct the discomfort in the hands.
CTS can occur due to many different factors such as:
• acute injury
• inflammatory arthritis
• ergonomic challenges
• repeated motion and stress to the wrist
• fluid retention
HealthMax Chiro will provide relief to clients suffering from CTS. We will use techniques such as joint manipulation and mobilization of the wrist and hand. We will also use a combination of stretching and strengthening exercises. We hope to reduce our client’s possibility of having to resort to more invasive treatments.

Dr. Jamie is beyond fantastic! She makes you feel so welcomed and always leaves you feeling encouraged about your health! She cares for you as a whole and is constantly doing everything she can to improve your health. I wouldn’t go anywhere else! Love the HealthMax family!
I haven’t had a migraine or headache since the beginning of August! The Dr and the team at HealthMax Chiropractic of Hudson are absolutely wonderful and I recommend them to all of my friends. I don’t believe I would have gotten better if I had not come here.
Finding the right Chiropractor can sometimes be hard to find. I have seen numerous Chiropractors over the last 17 years but most were just back-crackers at best. After coming to HealthMax the first time, I knew I had found the right place. I highly recommend them to anyone looking for proper treatment.
