Carpal tunnel syndrome


Toronto Chiropractor, Dr. Mark Halpern discusses the mechanism and cause of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome as well as treatment options. Carpal Tunnel Syndrome has both neck and wrist involvement due to improper posture and ergonomics. Most commonly, the stress on the neck which most of us endure daily, causes degeneration in the neck and compression on the nerves. Repetitive strain of the wrists is also a factor due to the amount of time people spend at their computer. In some cases Carpal Tunnel Syndrome is caused by wrist injuries or neck injuries that are either acute or chronic.Treatment is aimed at restoring proper nerve function and improving the mechanics of the neck and wrists.
