Carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS) is most often associated with repetitive movements and inflammation that effects the function of the median nerve as it passes through the wrist. Due to Vitamin D playing many roles in the body when levels are low, nerves may be more susceptible to injury and take longer to heal. Recent studies have identified vitamin D deficiency as a risk factor for CTS, as well as more severe CTS-associated symptoms.
One such option that the CTS patient may encounter in the chiropractic setting is laser therapy. Below is a link by the National Institute of Health explaining why high-intensity laser treatment may be beneficial to someone affected by carpal tunnel.
