San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) April 11, 2011
Carpal Tunnel Syndrome (CTS) and its related disorders is a leading cause of disability amongst San Francisco office workers. Often times, patients with carpal tunnel symptoms will live and work in pain for years before finding the right kind of treatment.
Typically, a person with wrist pain and numbness, or weakness of grip, will go to the emergency room or visit the family doctor...only to end up with a wrist splint and some Motrin. Meanwhile the underlying problem is still there.
According to Dr. Davis, who has been providing carpal tunnel treatment in San Francisco for almost 20 years now "many carpal tunnel victims feel they have no where to turn and that nobody understands what is wrong with them. They end up living in pain for years".
With the way people are glued to the computer all day and to their smart phones...it's no wonder everyone does not have CTS. We simply are not designed to be sitting all day doing repetitive motions over and over. Carpal tunnel syndrome is a repetitive stress injury (RSI) which means it mostly happens from performing the save movements day in and day out.
Women are more prone to carpal tunnel syndrome, as are smokers, and those that have occupations that require repetitive motions such as hair cutters, and grocery store clerks.
According to Dr. Davis, there are things people can do at work such as take micro-breaks, which are a brief rest period every 20-30 minutes, as well as neck, shoulder, and hand stretches and exercises.
There are also natural solutions for carpal tunnel syndrome that most CTS sufferers simply do not know about. Says Dr. Davis "This is why we want to hold the doors of our San Francisco Chiropractic Clinic open during Carpal Tunnel week...so we can help teach and educate wrist and hand pain patients...that they do have choices."
Executive Express Chiropractic is located at the Embarcadero Center in downtown San Francisco. During the week of April 18-23, 2011 they will be checking people for carpal tunnel syndrome and demonstrating how chiropractic, deep tissue laser with the LCT-1000, Active Release Technique (ART), and special carpal tunnel exercises can often times reduce and eliminate CTS pain that has been there for years.
