As one of the most common job related injuries, Carpal Tunnel Syndrome is responsible for the highest number of days lost among all work related injuries! Some symptoms that are associated with Carpal Tunnel Syndrome are: frequent burning, tingling or numbness in the hand, and especially in the thumb, index and middle finger. As symptoms worsen, you may feel pain, weakness and numbness in the hand and wrist which may radiate up the arm. Acupuncture treatment will help reduce the swelling that is caused by the inflammation of the nerves and/or tendons. The treatment will also address any of the other problems such as headaches, neck pain, shoulder stiffness, and sleeping problems that often accompany Carpal Tunnel Syndrome. Along with the acupuncture treatment your acupuncture physician may also recommend stretching exercises as well as herbal remedies or nutritional supplements to help you reach your optimum healing potential.
