One of the biggest problems associated with carpal tunnel, in addition to the impingement in the wrist or arm is the fact that you likely can’t sleep.  This fact alone is going to significantly impact the quality of your work and personal life day in and day out.

Carpal tunnel syndrome is a common condition that causes pain, numbness, and tingling in the hand and arm. The condition occurs when one of the major nerves to the hand — the median nerve — is squeezed or compressed as it travels through the wrist.

Some working environments can cause more frequent or severe conditions associated with carpal tunnel; such as repetitive activities, extensive use of a mouse and keyboard, vibrational equipment, food preparation, athletics or musical instruments.

Carpal tunnel is often experienced as only part of a more complex set of problems; but we’d like to suggest a few things you might be able to try.

Generally one might try over the counter pain relievers but these often don’t work. Resting splints can be useful but make sure you only use them when you’re resting, not at work or active.

Other things one might try, would including icing the area to reduce inflammation, or even targeted gentle stretching exercises that could help reduce pain associated with carpal tunnel.

The next step for trying to find relief often involves going to a doctor or other health professional where, depending on the discipline of that care provider, recommendations for relief are going to be significantly impacted by their area of expertise. A surgeon for example, is going to feel that the remedy can be found with surgery. A nutritionist is going to suggest a nutritional program to address the issue.

“We will look at the causes of your pain as a functional whole and address that pain using simple, gentle non-surgical, drug-free methods to get you back on track.”

It is critical to consider that some conditions typically associated with carpal tunnel either aren’t really carpal tunnel OR, in many cases, more complex in nature. These complexities often involve many aspects of impingement, or compensation for impingement, directly associated with behaviors and activities that need to be looked at comprehensively before implementing a neuro-functional treatment plan.

So before you try drugs or surgery, which either don’t work, merely cover up problems, or even make things worse, schedule sometime with us to see if we can address your pain using simple, gentle, non-surgical and drug-free methods to help you get back to wellness.
