Chiropractic Topics-Pronator syndrome and carpal tunnel

Pronator syndrome is a condition in which the median nerve is impinged by the muscles in the forearm. The condition may be very similar to carpal tunnel in symptoms. Usually a person with pronator syndrome has a history of repetitive motions in the forarm or wrist from such activities as weight lifting or working with the hands. Usually, the nerve is compressed at a point near the elbow and the spot may be rather tender.
Chiropractic management of pronator syndrome involves myofascial release and rest. Usually it is recommended that a person undergo 2-3 weeks of Chiropractic treatment and rest.
