Carpal Tunnel Treatment Natural Relief
Carpal tunnel relief with acupuncture? Acupuncture is proven to relieve symptoms of carpal tunnel syndrome including wrist pain, numbness, tingling, weakness, and nighttime waking. Research has shown acupuncture to be as effective as prednisone in the relief of carpal tunnel syndrome.
How Does Acupuncture Help with Carpal Tunnel Syndrome?
Acupuncturists treat pain of all kinds, including symptoms associated with carpal tunnel. Acupuncture clears blockages in the acupuncture meridians. The meridians are channels, similar to blood vessels, that carry life force we call ‘qi’ through the body. Your wrists have meridians which can become blocked due to over use or injury.
When the wrist meridian becomes blocked – the result is a narrowing in the carpal tunnel resulting in pain, tingling, and numbness. Eventually the life force passing through the carpal tunnel becomes so blocked that it begins to cause loss of coordination of the affected hand with inability to grasp properly.
Acupuncture clears the blockage that has been created in the channels that flow through the wrist. By clearing the blockage, the tissues receive vital life force that had been missing due to blocked ‘qi’. Pain is relieved and numbness or tingling subsides. When the hand receives vital energy flow, it functions properly and you’re as good as new!
Carpal Tunnel Research Studies
Acupuncture Similar to Prednisone for Symptoms of Carpal Tunnel
In a 2009 study acupuncture was shown to be “as effective as short-term low-dose prednisolone [prednisone] for mild-to-moderate CTS. [Carpal Tunnel Syndrome] For those who do have an intolerance or contraindication for oral steroid or for those who do not opt for early surgery, acupuncture treatment provides an alternative choice.”
Patient Review for Carpel Tunnel
“I am a glass blower, and having carpal tunnel and tendonitis doesn’t make my job easier. I have done physical therapy, steroid shots, and was close to surgery. After many appointments to different specialists, I decided to give acupuncture a try… Margaret Celli knew right away knew what to do… I FEEL GREAT!!! AMAZING!!! I couldn’t believe the results! The swelling in my arms went away, the searing pains ceased, my tendonitis is GONE!!! During my last apt, I asked Margaret if she could also start taking care of my lower back pains, of course she said yes.. added a few more pins…. seriously moments later, as I was lying there… ALL MY PAIN SEEMED TO VANISH!!! It was unbelievable. of course, it didn’t magically go away.. But it reduced dramatically!! I’ve been dealing with my back problem ever since I had an accident back in 2012… meds, therapy, stimulant therapy, etc… nothing seemed to work, but ACUPUNCTURE DID!!!! I DEFINITELY RECOMMEND HER. Thank you Margaret for giving me peace and the option not to undergo surgery!!! I’m a very, very happy client.”
