Carpal Tunnel, Hand Pain, Wrist Pain, Natural ReliefThe Link Between Carpal Tunnel and the Upper Cervical Spine

Those who deal with carpal tunnel syndrome on a day-to-day basis are happy to get relief in any way possible. But would you consider seeing an upper cervical chiropractor? Perhaps you are having trouble seeing the connection between your wrist pain and the top two vertebrae in your neck. Allow us to explain the science behind this link and how upper cervical chiropractic can benefit you.

First of all, understand that carpal tunnel syndrome is nerve pain. That means that there isn’t necessarily anything physically wrong with a person’s wrist. Those arm nerves connect back to the brain, just like all of the other nerves in the body.

Some have even had surgery performed on their wrist to deal with carpal tunnel, but for many the operation proves ineffective. Why? Again, the pain is felt in the wrist and arm, but it may be coming from somewhere else.

Getting Natural Relief for Carpal Tunnel

Before seeking surgery for carpal tunnel (or if surgery has failed to fix the problem), we want to encourage you to seek a natural and non-invasive option. Upper cervical chiropractic involves examining the top two bones in the neck for misalignments. Such a subluxation can cause pressure on the brainstem and pain just about anywhere in the body, including the arms and wrists. Many see improvement after their first session, and the results only get better from there.

If you would like to learn more, contact Dr. Armen Manoucherian, an upper cervical chiropractor in Glendale, California. An examination may reveal that you don’t need invasive surgery after all. Gentle adjustments to realign the C1 and C2 vertebrae have helped many to cope with debilitating nerve pain.
