Tingling hands and carpal tunnel, Chiropractic treatments.

Pain and tingling are common symtoms that cause people to seek Chiropractic care for carpal tunnel syndrome. Pain is a sign of nerve irritation and tingling is a sign of nerve regeneration. The point a nerve becomes irritated is usually a point of localized pain (such as in the forearm for pronator teres syndrome). The pain may extend along the course of the nerve but is most intense over the area of irritation. This type of pain may also be felt into the muscles.
Nerve regeneration and tingling is usually not a painful process but is often described as a vaguely disagreeable feeling. The sensation is often felt along the surface of the skin and usually not into the muscles.
It is also worthwhile to note that pain and tingling usually are not felt simultaneously.
In persons suffering with carpal tunnel syndrome pressure over the carpal tunnel may produce either tingling which indicates nerve regeneration or pain which may indicate nerve degeneration.
