Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

Carpal Tunnel Syndrome is a fairly common condition that seems to have gained a lot of publicity and is diagnosed quite often now by many healthcare providers (MD's, DC's, DO's, etc.) due in large part to our economy which contains many jobs involving sitting at a computer using a mouse and keyboard repetitively throughout the day. In fact, carpal tunnel syndrome makes up approximately 1% of worker's compensation claims and 60% of mononeuropathies (pathology affecting one nerve) and enthesopathies (pathology affecting where the tendon inserts onto a bone)!

These pages are dedicated to helping you learn more about Carpal Tunnel Syndrome and how Dr. Cameron Weishaar and Dr. Troy Holder at Back In Motion Chiropractic may be able to help you and prevent you from having to persue surgery or other more invasive treatments.
