Acupuncture for Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

Patients with Carpal Tunnel Syndrome usually feel burning, tingling, numbness, pain or weakness in the hand and wrist or arm. Some patients might have difficult to form a fist. A Comprehensive Text by Shanghai College of Traditional Chinese Medicine demonstrated: Acupuncture is extremely effective at treating carpal tunnel syndrome; eliminating the need for surgery or the use of anti-inflammatory drugs or corticosteroids.

Acupuncture increases blood flow and energy to the involved area to nourish the damaged tissues and balance immune system to enhance the joints functioning, and strengthen grip strength; reduce inflammation, swelling and pain. Acupuncture also can take into account any underlying conditions that contribute to the development of carpal tunnel syndrome including obesity, rheumatoid arthritis, thyroid problems, diabetes, hormonal changes of pregnancy and menopause. As well as accompany conditions include headaches, neck pain, shoulder stiffness and sleeping problems.

Course of treatment

There are 10-15 acupuncture sessions in one course of treatment. Treatment frequency depends on individual condition. Chinese herbs work synergistically with acupuncture.
