Now more than ever, people spend hours at a time typing away at a computer. Unfortunately, this type of repetitive moment can wreak havoc on your hands and arms. If you aren’t keeping ergonomics in mind when sitting at a desk all day, you can develop carpal tunnel syndrome. This occurs when the median nerve, which extends from the tips of the fingers to the arm and neck, becomes inflamed or irritated. Symptoms of carpal tunnel syndrome include numbness, wrist pain, weakness in your hands and arms, and even burning. At our chiropractic care center near Las Colinas, our spine specialists can remove obstructions from the joints and muscles along the median nerve, helping reduce symptoms.
