Carpal Tunnel and Headaches

Pressure on your nerves is not good for you. It presents differently in many people but commonly is seen as headaches and problems through the wrists and hands. Dr. Peever discusses this with the CDI college students in this video.

Transcript – Carpal Tunnel and headaches

Continued from CDI lecture:

Pressure on the neck, I hinted at a few things that can happen – Headaches, shoulders, eyes, neck, arms, down to the hands.

Who has heard of carpal tunnel?

What have you been doing for it?


Surgery? – Surgery is the last resort. There is so many things that you have to be doing before that. Including watching your postures, watching the pressure through the wrist, and making sure it is adjusted by a Chiropractor to make sure those wires get from your brain down to your wrist without being pushed on by the bony structures along the way.

Who else has headaches?

What do you do for them? Take a Tylenol?

At the beginning of a career you want to figure it out. Your body will tell you these little clues along the way and a headache is one of them. The headache isn’t usually the problem but a warning sign or response to a problem. A problem with our current cultural mindset is that we learn our health information from TV commercials. Such as if you are thirsty…drink coke. (Not water…). When you’re tired, Drink Coffee…(Not sleep). When you are sneezing, take an allergy pill (don’t bother cleaning the house). We want to realize these signals that the body’s telling us and not just ignore them. With headaches, yes Tylenol can change the pain, but the reason the headache is there is not because you don’t have enough drugs in your diet.

Take an alternative approach to your headaches and carpal tunnel.
