Carpal Tunnel Syndrome Treatment in Newport Beach, CA Near Me.

Carpal Tunnel Syndrome is a peripheral nerve disorder that results in numbness, burning pain, tingling, and weakness in the hand or arm. It occurs when the median nerve, which runs from the forearm to the hand through a narrow passage called the carpal tunnel, becomes compressed or squeezed.
Compression of the median nerve can lead to various symptoms, including:

  1. Numbness or tingling: Individuals with carpal tunnel syndrome may experience a sensation of numbness, tingling, or a “pins and needles” feeling in the thumb, index finger, middle finger, and the thumb side of the ring finger.
  2. Weakness: Weakness in the hand and a tendency to drop objects may occur due to the compression of the nerve.
  3. Pain or discomfort: Some people with carpal tunnel syndrome may experience aches or pain in the wrist, palm, or forearm. The pain can sometimes radiate up the arm or even into the shoulder.
  4. Hand stiffness: Individuals may notice decreased dexterity and stiffness in their fingers, making it challenging to perform tasks that require fine motor skills.

A Comprehensive Workup to Address All Health Concerns

Conventional carpal tunnel treatment includes anti-inflammatory medications and surgery. Chiropractors prefer a more conservative, natural, non-invasive approach to carpal tunnel relief. By addressing the underlying issue of median nerve compression, we can stop carpal tunnel pain and prevent future bouts rather than covering up the symptoms with temporary solutions.

How Our Carpal Tunnel Pain Care Plan Works

1. Thorough
Exam

We will perform an in-depth consultation, palpate your spine for misalignments, and document your posture. Nerve scans will tell us exactly where pressure on your nervous system is causing muscle tension and affecting organ function. A chiropractor will also do a stress test and, if necessary, take digital x-rays.

2. Receive A
Plan Of Action

The chiropractor will review your test results and have you come back the next day to review their findings. They will give you their best recommendations on where to begin correcting your problem and the most cost effective way to take care of your health challenges.  Each body is different and needs individualized care.

3. Get Back
To Living Life

At Priestley Family Chiropractic, each chiropractor believes you should be able to live your life the way you choose, without physical limitations or fears of injury. When your nervous system is functioning at its best you feel better, have more energy, sleep better, concentrate properly, and are an overall better person.

How We Treat Carpal Tunnel Syndrome in Newport Beach, CA

Comprehensive Consultation and Exam

We meticulously assess your medical history, lifestyle factors, and symptoms. Utilizing orthopedic tests, nerve conduction studies, and palpation, we identify potential sources of nerve compression. Precise adjustments and targeted therapies aim to alleviate pressure on the median nerve, promoting optimal hand function. Patient education on ergonomic practices and rehabilitative exercises further enhances long-term relief. This holistic approach ensures a tailored treatment plan for effective Carpal Tunnel Syndrome management.

Specific Chiropractic Care In Newport Beach, CA

After a comprehensive history and thorough examination, we can create a carpal tunnel treatment plan specific to your needs and situation. Chiropractors are joint experts. The many bones in the hands and wrist mean many tiny joints. When any of these joints become restricted, or the positioning of the bones is incorrect, it can contribute to the development of carpal tunnel syndrome. Chiropractors employ gentle adjustments targeted at the wrist to alleviate these restrictions and restore proper alignment, improving range of motion, reducing pain, and enhancing the body’s capacity to heal.

Custom Therapeutic Exercises

Our body heals best through movement. Customized stretching and strengthening exercises will assist the healing process and help re-establish musculoskeletal balance in the area. This will improve the function not only of the wrist but of the entire arm as well.

Deep Tissue Laser

We use deep tissue laser to accelerate healing times and reduce inflammation in patients with carpal tunnel syndrome. Deep tissue laser uses light therapy to stimulate healing at the cellular level. Reducing inflammation in the wrist allows the muscles and nerves to heal more efficiently.

Soft Tissue Work

Many muscles and tendons pass through the carpal tunnel and can be affected by inflammation. Helping muscles function better is a critical component of treating carpal tunnel. Alleviating muscle tension helps restore normal function. Graston Technique and Active Release Technique, two common muscle therapies, remove adhesions that impair muscle function. Using specialized equipment and dynamic stretching, respectively, these two techniques work with chiropractic adjustments to treat carpal tunnel syndrome effectively.

I just love Doctor Priestly. I saw him about 10 years ago while I was pregnant and fast forward to a pinched nerve less than 2 weeks before a vacation, I was able to make a next day appointment and on my way to recovery in time to enjoy my trip. Everyone in his office is professional, friendly and courteous. I would highly recommend.

Back to me. First and foremost the team at Priestly Chiropractic is professional, friendly and truly care about their clients health and well being. I came to Priestly Chiropractic (PC) after doing my own on research on getting some help/relief for the realistically horrible and unbearable pain I was having in my lower back. Now, a bit of a back story, (pardon the pun. ) 12 months prior to finding PC I underwent spinal surgery for a micro-discectomy. This wasn't just any mirco-discectomy this was a 22mm one, which after quite a bit of research and speaking to many professionals this is one of the biggest most of them have ever seen. For reference, I am not over weight, I am under 40 and I am an extremely active person. Before surgery I ran 3-5 days a week, 3-5 miles each time, lifted weights, looked after my family of 5 and worked 4 days a week (maybe I was the problem? haha!) Anyway, I had surgery to fix it, with a recovery time of 3-6 months (so they said), I was to be back on my feet and ready to run again. Well, after a full year after my surgery including 8 months of physical therapy 2 days a week, I still wasn't back to myself and was still in pain. Constantly feeling like I was struggling to do day to day tasks as simple as putting on my pants without help or pain, picking up my 5 year old son, tying my own shoes and defiantly not running. So, I did some research of my own and found out about decompression therapy and that to my luck PC had the exact machine to do this type of therapy for my type of injury and many other spinal injuries. If you don't know what it is just give it a quick google, (it's not an inversion table) I called and set up appointment, we went over a treatment plan and cost (which they have plans available if you cant afford it right away) and we decided on 18 weeks of care and I went twice and week. After the 18 weeks I was done! It was like magic, I was back to me... If you're on the fence about trying it and are in pain constantly like I was , even after surgery, this is worth it! This machine, the care and knowledge of the team at Priestly Chiropractic gave me my life back! Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

Common Symptoms of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome in Newport Beach, CA

Pain

The pain from median nerve compression can be mild, but it is usually quite bothersome. The hand or wrist will feel numb and tingly, which may interfere with your ability to grip objects tightly or use a mouse at the computer for long periods. Pain is a frequent symptom in the palm, thumb, index finger, middle finger, and half of the ring finger. The pain may radiate up the arm or extend to the shoulder.

Numbness

Numbness and tingling sensations, known as paresthesia, are hallmark symptoms of carpal tunnel syndrome. The affected fingers and hand may feel “asleep” or have a sensation of “pins and needles”. Numbness and tingling often occur at night and may wake individuals from sleep.

Weakness

As carpal tunnel syndrome progresses, weakness in the hand and a decrease in grip strength may occur, making it difficult to work or perform everyday tasks. Additionally, stiffness and reduced flexibility in the hand and wrist may interfere with fine motor skills and intricate hand movements. Muscle atrophy (shrinking or wasting of muscles) in the thumb area is also observed in severe or chronic cases.

The symptoms of carpal tunnel syndrome typically develop gradually and may be more noticeable during activities that involve repetitive hand movements, such as typing, using a computer mouse, or gripping tools. People who make repetitive motions for more than five hours daily are at the highest risk of developing median nerve compression. These individuals are involved in certain professions requiring fine motor control, such as writers, carpenters, musicians, and assembly line workers.

Frequently Asked Questions

What helps carpal tunnel heal faster?

Chiropractic care, including adjustments, manual therapy, and stretching and strengthening exercises, may relieve carpal tunnel pain and support the healing process. We offer personalized treatment plans based on each patient’s condition and needs. We may also recommend:

  • Rest and Immobilization
  • Cold Therapy
  • Avoid Triggering Activities
  • Stress Reduction

Chiropractic care focuses on the structural issues causing the condition and optimizes the nervous system to improve healing.

Is ice or heat better for carpal tunnel syndrome?

When choosing between heat and ice for carpal tunnel syndrome, we recommend cold therapy (ice or cold packs) rather than heat. Cold therapy can help reduce inflammation and provide pain relief, while heat can worsen inflammation and increase swelling, exacerbating symptoms.

How do I stop my hands from going numb when I sleep?

Adjust your sleeping position to reduce pressure on your wrists and hands. Try to avoid sleeping with your wrists bent or flexed excessively. Keep your wrists in a neutral position by sleeping with your hands straight or using a wrist splint or brace to maintain proper alignment.

Incorporating gentle hand and wrist stretches into your daily routine, especially before bedtime, can help improve flexibility, reduce stiffness, and alleviate symptoms.

Can carpal tunnel syndrome heal without surgery?

Yes! Chiropractic care offers a non-invasive approach to carpal tunnel relief. Surgery should always be the last option. We can create a unique plan for each patient using chiropractic adjustments, manual therapy, and custom exercise routines to help alleviate carpal tunnel pain and prevent future flare-ups. The longer it takes to address carpal tunnel, the harder it becomes to fix the problem. That’s why it’s critical to address issues as soon as possible.

What causes carpal tunnel to flare up?

Increased pressure on the median nerve leads to a worsening of symptoms. Repetitive hand or wrist movements, forceful actions, poor ergonomics and bad posture, or poor sleeping position can all lead to increased nerve irritation and trigger carpal tunnel symptoms.
