Carpal Tunnel Syndrome – Carpal Tunnel Syndrome (C.T.S.) is a condition when the median nerve becomes compressed in the wrist.  Symptoms often include numbness and tingling into the thumb, index and middle fingers.  Chiropractic and physical therapy are often the first treatments required to heal carpal tunnel syndrome.

Elbow Pain – A variety of conditions can affect the elbow including: medial epicondylitis (golfer’s elbow), lateral epicondylitis (tennis elbow), tendonitis, bursitis, fractures, cubital tunnel syndrome, and elbow subluxations and misalignments.

Golfer’s Elbow Golfer’s Elbow (Medial epicondylitis) is a tendonitis/tendinosis of the flexor tendons of the forearm.  People who suffer from golfer’s elbow get pain on the inner part of their elbow.  While medial epicondylitis is called golfer’s elbow, many people get this condition who have never played golf.
