Identifying the reason why one has symptoms is important when it comes to carpal tunnel. Double crush syndrome can be the reason why one has wrist pain. Double crush syndrome is often misdiagnosed as carpal tunnel. Double crush syndrome can be treated successfully with chiropractic care and innovative muscle therapy, such as Rapid Release Technology, Active Release Technique, or FDA approved Cold Laser.
Before surgery for carpal tunnel one should look into the possibility of the problem of a compromised median nerve in the cervical spine. This can be due to an old whiplash injury, bad posture in the work place, and even osteoarthritis.
A thorough examination, as well as x-ray and even MRI studies, doing specific neurological and orthopedic tests can help identify the problem.
