Are You at Risk for Carpal Tunnel Syndrome?

So you have back pain. It’s probably coming from your back, right? Or if it’s leg pain, is it safe to assume the problem is in your leg?
No – not exactly. Referred pain, or pain felt in a part of the body that’s different from the source, is quite common – so common, in fact, that it can be difficult to make a definitive diagnosis at a typical healthcare appointment.
There’s good news, though: Chiro One’s expert chiropractors are uniquely trained to take a holistic, full-body musculoskeletal assessment of your pain, and they specialize in getting to the root of the issue. Our chiropractors are highly skilled in uncovering the root cause of your longtime pain symptoms.
Did you know that headaches can be caused by inflammation or problems with discs in the neck? Nerve pressure and muscle tension in the neck can lead to pounding headaches.
Plantar fasciitis may change the way you walk and stand, and this can lead to imbalances that cause low back pain.
Many patients assume they have carpal tunnel syndrome, but their pain may stem from a nerve problem instead. Compression of the radial or ulnar nerve at the elbow, shoulder, or cervical spine can cause significant hand and wrist pain.
If you experience pain in the back of your thigh and down your leg, the pain could stem from the sciatic nerve.
“At Chiro One, we specialize in determining the cause of your pain and creating customized treatment plans that provide relief, so you can live your healthiest life.”Dr. Jill Pickens, Chiro One Chiropractic Director
