Carpal Tunnel is a debilitating joint disorder similar to arthritis, which limits many people from using their hands on a daily basis. Performing simple tasks like typing, playing the piano, turning a door knob, or swinging a golf club, can become increasingly difficult and very painful. If your sleep is being interrupted at night by pain and aching in your wrists, this can lead to other health issues that limit your ability to function properly during working hours. You need to contact Fort Worth chiropractor Dr. Noorani at Beach Pain Center & Rehabilitation immediately to seek help before your pain gets worse.
Carpal tunnel symptoms typically start with gradual aching or throbbing in the wrist area. Eventually you may start to feel occasional numbness or tingling in your fingers or hand, often occurring when holding a phone, grasping a golf club, or immediately when waking up in the morning. It's easy to mistakenly believe your hand has fallen asleep but no matter how much you shake your hands to get back feeling, the pain you may feel won't go away. Without proper treatment the numbing feeling will continue and may become constant.
