Your Hand is Numb, What Can You Do?

Atty ty. y Michael N. Krisa

I know. It hurts. You hate typing. You hate writing. You’re not as effective and productive. Your hand is numb, especially at night. You can’t take the pain!! You’re fed up. Your aching wrists just about ruin everything from your productivity at work to a night out with your friends. I know its difficult. I see many people such as yourself that ask, “When is it going to stop?” I’m writing to tell you that I’ve helped many people with hand pain and numbness from Carpal Tunnel Syndrome(CTS). The bottom line of CTS is that there is a tightening of the structures of the wrist causing an irritation on the tendons and sheaths, nerves and blood vessels passing through the wrist. Before doing anything, you must have an experienced Chiropractor like myself examine the wrist and hand to determine if yours is the type of condition that could get relief with Chiropractic care.
