If you spend long hours typing on a keyboard, playing a sport that involves the dexterous use of the wrist or fingers, practising an instrument or otherwise using your hands and wrists, then you may be at risk for developing carpal tunnel syndrome. Carpal tunnel syndrome occurs when the median nerve in your arm and wrist becomes compressed or pinched. This compression, in turn, causes pain, numbness or loss of dexterity in the hand and fingers.
At Yeronga Chiropractic & Wellness Centre in Brisbane, we can help alleviate the pain and finger weakness that characterises carpal tunnel syndrome. We understand how much carpal tunnel syndrome can interrupt your day-to-day life—especially if you work extensively with your hands or fingers. Our chiropractor, Dr Aidan McGuigan, will work to help you get back to full work efficiency by working on decompressing your pinched nerve. If referral for further investigation or treatment is necessary, Aidan will discuss this with you and give appropriate recommendations.
