Acupuncture Treats Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

Treat Carpal Tunnel with Acupuncture

One of the most common job-Pain Management acupuncturerelated  injuries, Carpal Tunnel Syndrome (CTS) is responsible for the highest number of days lost among all work-related injuries. Over two million visits to physician’s offices and over 465,000 operations each year are directly attributable to CTS.

Using acupuncture for CTS often lessens the need for surgery, anti-inflammatory drugs or corticosteroids. Recent studies suggesting that acupuncture is at least as effective as corticosteroids in treating CTS may explain why it has become a primary reason that people get acupuncture. In addition to reducing the inflammation and pain in the wrist, acupuncture can help address any neck pain, shoulder stiffness, headaches, and sleeping problems that often accompany this painful condition.

 

 

Acupuncture Relieves these symptoms of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome:

* Gradual tingling, burning, or numbness in the palm of the hand and the fingers, especially the thumb, index, and middle fingers. The symptoms often appear at night.
* As symptoms become more frequent, pain, numbness, or weakness in the hand and wrist, radiates up the arm during the day.
* Decreased grip strength may make it difficult to grasp small objects, form a fist, or perform other normal manual tasks.
* If left untreated, CTS can cause irreversible nerve damage and permanent deterioration of muscle tissue.

*Along with Acupuncture, stretching exercises and nutritional supplements often are effective in reducing or even eliminating the pain.
