What is Carpal Tunnel Syndrome?

Carpal tunnel syndrome and double crush syndrome cause numbness, tingling and pain in the wrist, hand and fingers. Because both of these syndromes have the same type of symptoms, a misdiagnosis is possible. At BackFit Health + Spine our TEAM of Medical Doctors, Pain Specialists, Chiropractors, Physical Therapists and Massage Therapists have decades of experience on the proper diagnostic techniques that are essential to getting an accurate diagnosis and therefore proper treatment. Let us help you get the relief that you need today.         

What Treatment Options are Available?

Our number one goal is to get you relief as quickly as possible which is why we have an entire TEAM dedicated to working together to get you better faster. Our focus will be on utilizing more natural methods of treatment and avoiding unnecessary and costly surgeries. There are several noninvasive therapies that can be used to eliminate the pain and correct the underlying structural issues associated with both conditions. Some of these therapies include:

  • Medical Care: Regenerative Medicine (Stem Cells and PRP-Platelet Rich Plasma) is the latest and most advanced Natural option available today to heal damage caused by carpal tunnel or double crush syndrome. Other options could include a specific non-steroidal injection to the injured area for immediate relief.  Topical Anti-inflammatory medications may be prescribed to relieve pain and decrease inflammation. These anti-inflammatory medications block Cox-1 and 2 enzymes that cause inflammation in the body.
  • Chiropractic treatment can be used to ease the symptoms of double crush syndrome and carpal tunnel syndrome. A chiropractor will manipulate the upper spine to correct misalignments of the body that may be causing your pain, tingling, and numbness in your hands. Additionally, manipulations can be done to the forearm, elbow, and wrist to correct restrictions that could be causing pressure to the nerve.
  • Diagnostic Testing may be necessary to properly diagnose the condition ie: X-Rays, Musculoskeletal Ultrasound, EMG/NCV
  • Tenex TM Targeted Chronic tendon Pain scar tissue removal repair
  • Ergonomic Modifications The patient may need to make changes to the way they use their hands, wear a wrist splint and use ergonomic aids, such as an ergonomic keyboard and an ergonomic wrist rest.
  • Massage Therapy to stretch and relax the tight and damaged muscles and ligaments is very helpful when in conjunction with proper physical therapy and chiropractic care.
  • Physical therapy to strengthen the muscles and tendons in the neck, hands and wrists and to increase mobility. The physical therapist will lead the patient through exercises to help the tendons glide more smoothly through the carpal tunnel. Another technique used is ultrasound. Ultrasound sends pulsating sound waves into the carpal tunnel to promote healing and decrease pain and inflammation.

Absolutely love this place! My husband and I have been going here for a while, and every time they remember us. We never have to re-explain anything. From the front desk to the medical team and chiropractors, they genuinely care. I’ve been having issues with my back and knee for as long as I can remember, and they helped make me feel better then I ever have. It's hard to find businesses that are run like BackFit. They have what is best for you at heart. Thanks for making my husband and I feel better then we’ve felt in years!

I would highly recommend BackFit. The staff and doctors are wonderful and my treatment has been very successful. My migraine headaches and sciatic nerve pain are completely gone. I have significantly less lower back pain and much more range of motion despite the fact that the disc in my back was very damaged. I can now go about my daily living without health issues getting in the way.

Great adjustments. Friendly staff too. Good therapists for exercising and stretching before I get adjusted. Been going for 4 years, totally love coming to get adjusted. Not scary at all. I had severe lower back pain and spasms. When I go for a routine adjustment it keeps from back pain occurring and my back spasming.

Going to BackFit was one of the best decisions I've made. I couldn't get out of bed because of severe back pain. I called BackFit and they were able to see me that day. They took x-rays in office. Loved that I didn't have to go anywhere else. Went back a couple days later to go over x-ray results with the chiropractor and started working on a solution, also with their in-house physician assistant and physical therapist. Not only have they been able to relieve the pain in my back but they have worked on other kinks in my body. Oh, and they also helped me lose weight. What more can I say, the people are amazing and the results are amazing! If anything in your body hurts, go to BackFit!

I look forward and enjoy every visit in my road to back recovery. The staff is extremely knowledgeable, friendly, and welcoming. I will no longer be looking for another chiropractor office to meet my back needs. I also like the fact they provide other health needs.

I was a little weary at first, but man even in the first two weeks they are really making a difference in my health! I felt the difference just after my first visit! I am committed to coming back and staying consistently. I actually recommend!
