Carpal tunnel syndrome in hands occurs once the median nerve near the carpal tunnel is pressed. The forearm and the palm is connected by the duct called “carpal tunnel”. This tunnel has a very diminutive space, which causes carpal tunnel syndrome due to the extended tendons or nerve passing through it.
With that, it is very essential to determine the different signs of carpal tunnel syndrome so you can treat it right away.

Carpal tunnel is often related to work long periods of typing at the computer. With acute pain, short five minute breaks are required giving the wrists and the hands sufficient amount of time to calm and relax. This is also advisable for some body parts that exert same repetitive movements.
How to Treat Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
Carpal tunnel is a work-disabling condition that an individual easily acquired, but it is certainly manageable. Managing the different signs of carpal tunnel syndrome can be done by intensification and stretching the hands and wrists or by having several breaks for 15 seconds each especially in between the repetitive activities that the individual performs.
Medicines and drugs such as pain relievers offer temporary relief and do not offer long-term solutions. If you are looking for a natural solution without drugs or surgery, then carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS) is commonly treated by chiropractic care. The methods most chiropractors use to treat CTS include manipulation to clear the interferences on the nerves of the wrist, elbow and upper shoulder, cold laser therapy, and wrist supports.
In a study for chiropractic treatment for carpal tunnel, 25 people diagnosed with CTS were able to report significant improvements when tested against their hand range of motion, arm strength and how much pain they had after their chiropractic treatment. At least six months later these were shown to still be maintained.
