Going through the carpal tunnel
Carpal Tunnel Syndrome refers to a variety of symptoms, including numbness, tingling and pain the in the hand, wrist and arm and associated weakness or wasting away of hand muscles that are supplied by the Median Nerve. Carpal Tunnel Syndrome occurs when tendons in the wrist become inflamed after being aggravated. A tunnel of bones and ligaments in the wrist narrows, pinching nerves that reach the fingers and the muscle at the base of the thumb.

Baby Talk is Talking Chiropractic
In a recent issue of Baby Talk magazine, an article entitled, "It's Only Natural", discussed a recent gathering of 300 pediatricians in Tucson, Arizona. The speakers included, Stephen Straus, M.D., head of the National Institutes of Health's National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine and Andrew Weil, M.D., director of the program in integrative medicine at the
University of Arizona College of Medicine. The article stated that pediatricians are becoming aware that patients' parents are less and less eager to turn to drugs when treating childrens' illnesses. The pediatricians were looking at options for "times, such as with colic or recurrent ear infection, when standard treatments don't hold all the answers". This is an excerpt on the portion of the article dealing with chiropractic and children's health:

"How does it work?" "Chiropractors trace many of the body's health problems to misalignments of the spinal column, which press on the nerves leading to various parts of the body. But, chiropractors who work with infants don't apply the same force that's used with adults..."



Answers to Pain of Sciatica
The sciatic nerve is created by the gathering of nerves that extend from the spinal cord down through the pelvic bones. The sciatic nerve branches out and controls the organs in the pelvis and everything else from the hips to the toes.
