How the C-TRAC device from your doctor in Winter Park, FL, can help you
You probably know someone who has carpal tunnel. Maybe you even have it yourself. It’s a common condition that can develop when people use their wrists or hands too much. Carpal tunnel can result in pain or numbness in your hands and fingers. Fortunately, your chiropractor can help.
Dr. Enrique Umpierre-Schuck at Central Florida Pain and Rehab Clinic in Winter Park, Florida offers treatment for carpal tunnel, including C-TRAC, to help restore full function and sensation in your hands and fingers.
Carpal tunnel syndrome is caused by a narrowing of the carpal space the median nerve goes through. The median nerve is squeezed off at the wrist, causing signs and symptoms like these in your wrists, hands, and fingers:
- Numbness and tingling
- Loss of full function and strength
In the past, carpal tunnel syndrome was treated only with surgery to widen the carpal space. The surgery resulted in an inability to use your hand or fingers for weeks or even months. Carpal tunnel surgery was also painful, and the results were not always promising.
Dr. Enrique Umpierre-Schuck has a better way. It’s called the C-TRAC device. This device stretches the carpal ligament, opening up the carpal tunnel. Pressure on the median nerve is reduced, which also reduces tingling, numbness, and pain.
Treatment with the C-TRAC device offers many important advantages, including:
- Stretching and traction are controlled by you
- Treatment is non-invasive, with no incisions or sutures
- It’s effective, with 75% of patients avoiding surgery
- Treatment is safe because it's approved by the FDA
- It’s easy, because you wear C-TRAC for 5 minutes, 3 times a day, for 4 to 6 weeks
- You can reuse the device to manage your symptoms on an ongoing basis
If you have carpal tunnel, surgery is not the only answer. C-TRAC can help you. To discover more about C-TRAC treatment, call Dr. Enrique Umpierre-Schuck at Central Florida Pain and Rehab Clinic in Winter Park, FL, at (407) 673-9533. Call today.
