This is Dr. David

I am sorry about your husband's carpel tunnel syndrome.

carpel tunnel syndrome occurs from too much pressure in the wrist causing pressure on the median and ulnar nerves going through the wrist.

he should work on elevating his wrist and icing his wrist to decrease swelling.

most likely seeing a chiropractor doctor won't be that helpful. they focus on adjusting the spine for body problems.

he should see a physical therapist and occupational therapist to help with wrist stretching exercises.

has he tried icing his wrist and elevating his wrist?

and doing stretching exercises?
