Drug-Free Pain Relief for Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
Carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS) is one of the most frequent and expensive work-related injuries. Although many people associate frequent typing or data entry with CTS, it more frequently occurs in individuals who work on assembly lines, or who sew or clean. Women are three times more likely to develop CTS than men, and it is also common among manufacturing, finishing and meatpacking workers.
If you believe you have CTS, or you have already been diagnosed with carpal tunnel syndrome, Cool Springs, TN chiropractor Dr. Jason Crist of Crist Chiropractic & Wellness can help.
