Treating Carpal Tunnel Syndrome with Acupuncture

Are you struggling with pain from Carpal Tunnel Syndrome? Did you know that acupuncture can provide relief?

Carpal Tunnel Syndrome is a common condition that affects the hand and wrist, causing numbness, tingling, and weakness. It occurs when the median nerve, which runs from the forearm into the hand, becomes compressed or squeezed at the wrist usually caused by repetitive hand movements, such as typing on a computer or using tools for extended periods. Symptoms usually start gradually, with frequent burning, tingling, or numbness in the palm of the hand and the fingers, especially the thumb, index and middle fingers. As symptoms worsen, people might feel pain, weakness, or numbness in the hand and wrist, radiating up the arm during the day. Decreased grip strength may make it difficult to form a fist, grasp small objects, or perform other manual tasks.

Acupuncture can help with Carpal Tunnel Syndrome by targeting specific points in the hand, wrist, and arm to relieve pain and inflammation. It can also improve nerve conduction and promote healing of damaged tissues.
