Carpal Tunnel Syndrome is caused by a nerve that’s trapped in your wrist. Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, or CTS, is understood much better if you look at it from the perspective of an Applied Kinesiologist.

My name is Dr. Joel Vickers and I practice Chiropractic and specialize in Applied Kinesiology (AK). I’d love to tell you all about Applied Kinesiology in this article, but I’ve already written a previous article, “Muscle Weakness from Trauma” that explains AK much better, and I encourage you to read it as soon as you can. Learn how to fix carpal tunnel without surgery below.

First of all, it’s important to understand that muscles move bones; bones do not move muscles.

Muscles also hold bones in their proper position, and when these muscles work properly all the other components (nerves, arteries, veins, ligaments, discs, joints, etc.) that are located in and around these properly balanced muscles work exactly the way they were designed to work. If any of these “components” fail to work properly or fail to pull their own weight they put the burden on the other parts that, as a team, function to move our limbs and our trunk around.carpal tunnel image

In the case of CTS, one of the simplest cures is to turn on and re-balance the muscles of the forearm, or arm, or shoulder. That’s it. Not “exercise it”, not “stretch it”, not “ultrasound it”, or “cold pack it”, or “hot pack it”, or anything like that. Receiving a cortisone shot or taking anti-inflammatory drugs may cover up the pain, but they will not and cannot turn on muscles or re-balance your forearm, arm, and shoulder muscles.

If you know anyone who suffers from Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, maybe someone who has fallen and injured their wrist or arm, don’t let them suffer needlessly! Please send them to me, Dr. Joel Vickers, at the Nutritional Healing Center of Ann Arbor, and I will help them back to full strength and full use of their hand and arm. Call today at (734) 302-7575.
