For those who are frustrated by this discomfort or find their lives affected, Dr. Lipman can provide chiropractic treatment to relieve the discomfort from the Physical Evidence Chiropractic office located in Boca Raton, Florida.
What does a chiropractor do to treat carpal tunnel syndrome and relieve symptoms?
Chiropractors have considerable experience in treating nerve-related injuries. Using special techniques like deep tissue manipulation, therapeutic massage, gentle stretching exercises are usually part of an effective treatment plan for carpal tunnel syndrome. Bracing, use of ice packs and ultrasound treatments may also be prescribed. Often, there are additional nerve-related issues further along the arm and even into the cervical spine (the portion of the spine located in the neck).
Using hands-on evaluation methods, a chiropractor can also determine if additional issues are present so symptoms can be treated and corrected at their source for long-lasting relief.
