No Needles? No Surgery? That’s right! Hundreds of our patients have found relief from Carpal Tunnel Syndrome without the use of needles or surgery!
The numbness and pain associated with Carpal Tunnel Syndrome can be eliminated quickly with a unique combination of brain-based therapy with Oxygen, Intermittent Traction, Chiropractic Wrist Adjustments, Cold Laser, Peripheral Neuropathy Rehabilitation Therapy and Specific Nutrition.
Surgery does have its downfalls, such as –
- Complications from the use of anesthesia;
- The risk of infection;
- Recompression of the median nerve caused by build-up of excessive scar tissue following surgery;
- Surgery for Carpal Tunnel Syndrome can change the normal relationship of the wrist bones, resulting in chronic wrist pain.
Your last resort for Carpal Tunnel Syndrome should be surgery; however if you are post-surgical and are experiencing problems, we can also treat these failure-cases.
Some patients develop excessive scar tissue following surgery that pinches the median nerve over a period of time, resulting in a return of the original symptoms. Other patients have undergone Carpal Tunnel procedures in an effort to relieve symptoms connected to the original complaint, as well as less-than-perfect outcomes from surgery.
Why not consider a clinically proven method that is conservative, doesn’t use needles, doesn’t involve cutting support tissue in the wrist and does no harm?
What is Carpal Tunnel Syndrome?
Carpal tunnel syndrome is a painful progressive condition caused by compression of a key nerve in the wrist. It occurs when the median nerve, which runs from the forearm into the hand, becomes pressed or squeezed at the wrist.
Symptoms usually start gradually, with pain, weakness, or numbness in the hand and wrist, radiating up the arm. As symptoms worsen, people might feel tingling during the day, and decreased grip strength may make it difficult to form a fist, grasp small objects, or perform other manual tasks.
The risk of developing carpal tunnel syndrome is especially common in those performing repetitive tasks such as those working at a computer or assembly line work.
In some cases no direct cause of the syndrome can be identified. Carpal Tunnel Syndrome is often accompanied by a “double crush syndrome” where the nerve is damaged or “pinching” along its path from the neck, shoulder, and forearm into the wrist.
The reasoning behind this “double crush syndrome” is that once the nerve is damaged at the wrist it becomes more susceptible to injury elsewhere.
Often times, the initial injury does not occur at the wrist but higher up at the neck. It is important that the nerve be examined along its entire path in order to properly determine the correct treatment plan.
Addressing the damage at the wrist only (ie: carpal tunnel surgery) can be short sited and lead to poor long term outcomes.
Our clinical success comes from first determining exactly where the nerve is being pinched. We address every level of nerve involvement whether at the wrist, forearm, shoulder or neck. If this is the case, we are well equipped to address this component of your condition.
