Pressure on the median nerve causes carpal tunnel syndrome. An incredibly tiny tube enclosed by bones and ligaments on the palm side of your hand is known as carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS). Numbness, weakness, and tingling in hand and arm can occur when the median nerve is crushed.


Carpal tunnel syndrome is caused by a buildup of pressure in your wrist and on your median nerve. An infection can cause swelling. Commonly, wrist edema and blood flow obstruction are caused by some underlying medical conditions.


Burning, numbness, tingling, or discomfort are some of the early signs. But your pinkie won’t be affected. Some of the other symptoms are:


  • May feel “shocks” to thumb and finger, which will come and go.
  • Your fingers feel puffy, even if they may not look likes it.
  • You will be troubled with numbness and tingling throughout your forearm.


You can reduce the risk of developing carpal tunnel syndrome by taking care to use good posture, performing regular finger and wrist exercises, using a chair with proper back support, or making sure not to put too much pressure on your wrists.


At Richmond Hill Chiropractor ON, our chiropractors try to use non-invasive therapies to take care of your carpal tunnel syndrome. Some of the non-surgical treatments used by our therapists have been given below:

Wearing A Wrist Splint At Night

In this case, therapists at Richmond Hill Chiropractor ON suggest you wear a wrist splint at night; you wear it on the hand with carpal tunnel syndrome. The treatment is used to reduce swelling and relieve numbness in your fingers during the day by lowering the gripping pressure of your thumb and finger flexors on the median nerve, as well as decreasing pain when bending your wrists backward.

Ultrasound Therapy

In this therapy, our therapists at Richmond Hill Chiropractor ON use either very high-energy or low-energy sound waves, depending on your preference. This gadget emits a focused sound wave that penetrates deep into your body’s tissue. As a result of the sound waves being emitted, your muscles are relaxed, reducing pain and inflammation.

Ultrasound Therapy

It is not uncommon for employees to suffer from carpal tunnel syndrome in the workplace., where changes can alleviate the symptoms. In addition to this therapy, Our chiropractor may advise you to change your environment to decrease symptoms. The following are possible changes:


  • Raising or lowering your chair can help you alleviate carpal syndrome. We at Richmond Hill Chiropractor, ON, recommend taking the time to understand how to adjust your chair before you sit down. We also recommend raising or lowering the seat to keep your thighs parallel to the floor, and your feet are in a flat position on the ground.
  • Moving your computer keyboard is another way you can prevent yourself from having the carpal syndrome. Our advice would be to place your keyboard on your lap, similar to how you would set a laptop. It’s essential to have a relaxed posture with your shoulders relaxed, your wrists straight, and your palms supported. Your overall comfort should improve immediately by bringing the keyboard and mouse closer to you. This will allow you to unload your body weight to the backrest of your chair. Keyboard support that will enable you to slant the keyboard away from your body can help you maintain your neutral posture.
  • You are changing your hand/wrist position while doing activities. We at Richmond Hill Chiropractor, ON, try to reduce the risk of carpal tunnel syndrome by being conscious of how your wrists are positioned. The most protective wrist position is the neutral wrist position. In this position, your hand is parallel to your wrist, and you’re facing forward.
