Cambridge ON Chiropractic Doctor Helps Locals Get Carpal Tunnel Syndrome Relief

A narrowing of the carpal tunnel located above the wrist and between the largest muscles of the hand can be disabling. The pain is concentrated in the joint near tunnel, which is where the nerve passes through. Although the twenty-seven bones in the hand and wrist show up on an x-ray, the soft tissue cushioning them usually does not. Your Cambridge ON Chiropractor can explain how the Median nerve can be obstructed causing carpel tunnel syndrome.

Not everyone knows that a chiropractor can alleviate the pain of this condition. It is a misunderstanding to think this professional only cares for back pain. This very painful repetitive stress injury can be relieved in a noninvasive and medication-free way.

The symptoms are quite noticeable. Included are tingling, numbness and an inability to grasp objects in addition to hurting. Visiting the chiropractor for the first time will be the first step towards relief.

Together you will discuss the symptoms in great detail and an x-ray is usually needed. When the condition is confirmed a series of office appointments will often be scheduled to administer adjustments to the wrist, hand, elbow and spine. The adjustments are done by applying pressure to a joint in a controlled way.

Advice for at-home care includes resting the arm and applying cold compresses. Sometimes a splint is used. A wrist support might be used to properly align the wrist and hand.

Unfortunately, the need to immobilize the wrist and hand will prevent working at a job requiring repetitive hand movements. The typist or factory worker who assembles small parts will be temporarily disabled. Rehabilitation takes time and the length of time differs from one person to the next.

Women are more susceptible to carpal tunnel syndrome due to the smaller and narrower size of the tunnel. Recovery time depends on factors such as severity of the injury and how well the client responds to the adjustments. One fact is for certain; the sooner the injury is cared for, the sooner the pain can be alleviated.

A bad posture can prove responsible for bodily aches and limitations in everyday activities. Incorrect postural alignment means that the spine is no longer balanced and compressing the nervous tissue and surrounding muscles leading to pain, discomfort, and restrictions. The methods offered by our Chiropractor Dr. Jason Wilson can aid in correcting posture and alleviating uncomfortable symptoms associated with spinal problems.

Posture is the position of the vertebral joints in the column in relation to the hips and shoulders. Injuries or remaining in a hunched position for extended periods places the spine at risk for abnormal curvature and poor vertebral positioning. When the vertebrae are no longer in a state of balance, it can cause nerve compression and severe restrictions in the ability to move freely.

Improper postural alignment will often lead to pain in the back, neck, and shoulders. Balance in posture is required to keep physical structures balanced and supported against future injuries and degradation whether at work or rest. Where alignment is obstructed, it places stress on the joints, damage to surrounding tissues, and severely limited mobility.

Lower lumbar pain, headaches, and knee pain can be associated with incorrect posture. Spinal adjustment methods will be applied to restore the positioning of the vertebrae where misalignment is present and causing nerve trouble. This includes firm thrusts and twisting motions in a safe environment that will aid in improving mobility and daily function.

A physical assessment can identify bad posture through mobility and flexibility tests. A chiropractor will examine the spine while standing, sitting, and walking. Patients will be taught how to maintain the right posture including muscle strengthening techniques to support the spine for long term health.

Severe cases of alignment can be corrected with custom orthotics, back braces, and similar techniques. Conditions including Scoliosis and arthritis can be supported with naturally based resources. Patient education is important to ensure that balance of the spine is maintained for an extended period of time to prevent complications at a later stage.

Are Headaches getting in the way of you living with your life!

There is no such thing as a normal headache. Their really isn’t! A headache is merely a symptom and its your body’s way of telling you something is wrong. In recent years, we at Wilson Health services have discovered that all headaches have one thing in common which is Stress! Stress can come in many forms like physical, chemical and emotional origins.

Physical causes-long day sitting at computer, poor sleep, ergonomics, poor pillow choices, car accidents, head injuries and falls.

Chemical causes-Certain types of foods and additives, wine, artificial sweeteners, MSG, Caffeine, and many more…

Emotional causes-a heated confrontation or argument, a stressful day, loss of a loved one Maybe I should take medication? Many people reach for Tylenol or Advil when they feel like a headache coming on. However, it is obvious that medication only masks the pain and doesn’t correct the root cause of the headache. You may notice that when you rely on medication the headaches keep coming back.

Tips for ridding yourself of headaches!

1) Consult a wellness Chiropractor- Misalignments in your spine do cause headaches. At Wilson Health Services we do a comprehensive examination of your spine and nervous system. We will identify any misalignments and work with you to develop a plan to address the cause of your headaches. Chiropractic is a safe, effective, drug free way to manage headaches.

2) Water, water and more water- Let’s stay hydrated as it is estimated that 75% of North Americans are chronically dehydrated . We need approximately 8-10 glasses per day as a general guideline. A good trick is to carry a water a bottle around with you everywhere you go. Not a bad idea to add an occasional slice of fruit to it to make things a little more flavorful and fun!

3) Decrease Stress in your life- It is difficult to control all the stressors in your life but you can definitely take the steps to manage these factors. Try having consistent work-outs, meditation and connecting with loved ones.

4) Reduce inflammation naturally- Inflammation also causes headaches. Try to choose whole and unprocessed foods without additives, MSG and artificial sweeteners. Also remember, smoking alcohol and caffeine promote chronic inflammation!

5) Consider a food sensitivity test- At Wilson Health Services we have a Naturopathic Doctor, Marwa Dabbagh that can be a key player to helping you determine if you are suffering with any food sensitivities.

Good luck to all!

It may be necessary to obtain digital imaging studies, along with a patient history and a physical examination in order to identify the location and the cause of the pain. Once the data is collected, Dr. Wilson can design a plan to help alleviate the pain.

Wilson Health Services offers natural and non-surgical therapy for correcting scoliosis pain and related symptoms. No drugs are used as part of the therapy.

Wilson Health Services and Dr. Jason Wilson are pleased to announce that they are able to correct problems associated with scoliosis. The spinal condition is a painful and debilitating misalignment of the spine which usually occurs in early adolescence, but may appear at a younger age. The spine of a person with scoliosis is curved sideways, instead of its normal curve. The Doctor of Chiropractic uses a series of spinal adjustments to bring the vertebral column back into alignment.

No one knows exactly what causes scoliosis, but chiropractors see the results and can work to correct the misalignment. Traditional care for scoliosis depends on the progression of the condition. For many patients, the condition comes on around the growth spurt time which often accompanies puberty.

By applying a series of small adjustments, the spinal column is helped to a better alignment. When the vertebrae are aligned properly, the muscles, nerves and connective tissue are no longer irritated by vertebrae or spinal discs. The relief from pain of the scoliosis victims can be significant.

Other natural therapeutic techniques will be used in conjunction with the spinal adjustments to restore proper circulation of the blood to distressed areas. The circulation brings the nutrients needed to heal nerves and soft tissue. Healthy circulation improves the ability of the blood to carry away toxins and damaged cells. The chiropractor also works to improve posture, using exercises which strengthen supportive tissue.
