Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

I have exten­sive expe­ri­ence in elim­i­nat­ing carpal tun­nel syn­drome. Typ­i­cal­ly caused by cumu­la­tive trau­ma, carpal tun­nel syn­drome is nerve entrap­ment of the fore­arm, wrist and hand caused by cir­cu­la­to­ry obstruc­tion and tis­sue inflam­ma­tion. The medi­an nerve is often the cul­prit and acupunc­ture to the wrist region reduces swelling and enhances cir­cu­la­tion to the area. The pain, weak­ness and numb­ness sub­side as a result of acupunc­ture care.

The acupunc­ture has a unique ben­e­fit in allow­ing the patient to con­tin­ue heavy use of the fore­arm, wrist and hand with­out aggra­vat­ing the area. This work hard­en­ing effect pre­vents fur­ther injury even though the patient may con­tin­ue to engage in repet­i­tive motions that pre­vi­ous­ly caused carpal tun­nel syn­drome. Book­keep­ers, hair styl­ists, cashiers, tai­lors, assem­bly work­ers and more are able to con­tin­ue work­ing with­out pain and dis­abil­i­ty.

I often see patients who have tried med­ica­tions and even surgery with­out results. In the case of med­ica­tions only, the patient can expect a com­plete recov­ery in almost every case. For post-sur­gi­cal patients, sig­nif­i­cant recov­ery is expect­ed but there may be some resid­ual issues due to scar tis­sue build-up from the surgery.

If you haven’t tried my spe­cial­ized acupunc­ture pro­ce­dures for the treat­ment of carpal tun­nel syn­drome, I strong­ly sug­gest that you give it a try. I use a Chi­nese med­i­cine tech­nique that pro­vides fast, effec­tive relief. A nice ben­e­fit of the acupunc­ture treat­ment is that it induces deep relax­ation dur­ing the acupunc­ture pro­ce­dure. The points that relieve carpal tun­nel syn­drome over­lap with points that reduce stress and also ben­e­fit sleep pat­terns.
