Pregnancy & Chiropractic: Week 24 with Erin

In the second or third trimester of your pregnancy a symptom that may appear is carpal tunnel syndrome. You may be experiencing carpal tunnel syndrome if you have swelling or pressure in the wrists that is causing pain, tingling, and/or numbness. Pregnant women can experience carpal tunnel syndrome because of the water retention, which leads to swe...lling and pressure in our wrists and ankles.
To treat carpal tunnel syndrome chiropractors can adjust your carpals (wrist bones) to realign them correctly. They can also perform lymphatic/soft tissue work to alleviate the pressure in your wrists and ankles. Active Release Technique (ART) and Graston Technique may be used to do this soft tissue work. Kinesio tape may also be applied to the wrists and ankles to help fluid move through the affected areas.
If you would like more information about the techniques to treat carpal tunnel syndrome please feel free to ask our doctors.
