Back Pain Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
Eight out of ten Canadians will experience back pain at some point in their life. Back pain will often go away on its own. However, left untreated, there is an 80 per cent chance that the back pain will recur. If you have back pain, early treatment from a chiropractor can help you get on with your busy life. Carpal tunnel syndrome is a condition affecting the hand and wrist. Symptoms can also involve the forearm. It occurs when the median nerve becomes irritated or compressed in the carpal tunnel. This will result in pain, numbness, tingling and weakness primarily in the thumb, index and middle finger, as well as the palm of the hand.
Shoulder Pain – Rotator Cuff Injury Tennis elbow
The rotator cuff is a group of tendons and muscles, which attach the upper arm to the shoulder blade. It helps you lift, push, pull, throw and reach with the arm. The rotator cuff is a common cause of shoulder pain. Pain due to the rotator cuff can occur when the muscles and tendons are inflamed, compressed, or torn. Tennis elbow is a term used to describe soreness and pain felt on the outer (lateral) part of the elbow. Tennis elbow is common and most people do not get it from playing tennis.
It is caused by injury, irritation, or inflammation of the tendons, which attach on the outer side of the elbow (on the lateral epicondyle of the humerus bone). These tendons are attached to muscles, which help bring the wrist and the fingers back as well as rotate the forearm.
