Carpal Tunnel Treatment

Rejuvenating therapy delivers platelet-rich plasma injections to the damaged, worn tissue. Platelets are a major component in your body’s natural healing process. By sourcing platelets from your own blood, we can target your damaged tissue to kick-start your natural healing powers. The more platelets available, the faster your body can heal.
When injected into painful areas, the high concentration of platelets quickly begins to restore and repair injured tissue. In some cases, we might also recommend chiropractic care for patients to assist in healing while also helping to prevent further damage.
What is Carpal Tunnel Syndrome?
The carpal tunnel is a narrow passage containing the flexor tendons and nerves used to move your fingers and thumbs. With prolonged use, the tunnel can narrow, and the surrounding tissue can swell. This places pressure on the nerves, causing pain.
Some common careers that contribute to carpal tunnel syndrome include:
- Assembly line workers
As well, if you enjoy sewing, knitting, and doing needlework, you can also develop carpal tunnel syndrome. Risk factors include:
- Repetitive hand use
- Extreme hand and wrist positioning
- Hormonal changes during pregnancy
- Health issues such as diabetes, rheumatoid arthritis, and thyroid gland imbalances
- A smaller carpal tunnel
Carpal Tunnel Symptoms
Carpal tunnel syndrome is slow to develop with symptoms tending to come and go at first. As the condition progresses, symptoms will last longer and also become more intense, including:
- Numbness in fingers
- Tingling, burning, or pain in your thumb, index, middle, and ring fingers
- Shock sensations radiating to the thumb, index, middle, and ring fingers
- Pain or tingling from the forearm to the shoulder
- Weakness and clumsiness in the hand
