One of the most common conditions that affects the nerves is Carpal Tunnel Syndrome. When the median nerve in the wrist is compressed, usually by swelling or a medical condition, it causes discomfort and pain to the hands. Most people do not realize there are options available for non-invasive treatment of this condition. Surgery and medication can be expensive. If you haven’t considered an integrative approach for a gentle form of treatment, please read on.
Carpal Tunnel Syndrome is often reported as a feeling of burning or tingling in the fingers and palms. People also experience a swelling sensation in the hands, even if there is no actual swelling present. This kind of pain can cause a weakness and difficulty doing small tasks, like picking up objects or doing repetitious activities with the fingers and hands.
The Cause of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
The causes of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome can differ from person to person. Some people have had an injury or stress to the hands and wrists that eventually leads to symptoms of carpal tunnel. Others develop pain in their hands as a result of repetitious use over long periods of time. The result is swelling in the tissues and misalignment of the bones that press on the nerve in the hands.
Treatment for Carpal Tunnel
Carpal Tunnel Syndrome has often been treated with surgery or drugs, but the source of the symptoms goes much deeper. Without the proper care, carpal tunnel can be a frustrating and painful lifestyle.
