Natural Carpal Tunnel Relief Methods

Why do so many people struggle to find carpal tunnel relief? Because, it is wrongly diagnosed everyday by doctors everywhere. To fully understand the condition we must first know what the condition is.

The carpal tunnel is the passageway in the wrist and is made up of the carpal bones (eight bones in the wrist) and the ligament connecting the pillars of the arch (the transverse carpal ligament). The median nerve and the tendons that connect the fingers to the muscles of the forearm pass through the tightly spaced tunnel.

Natural carpal tunnel relief is defined.when the median nerve becomes pinched due to swelling of the nerve or tendons or both. The median nerve provides sensation to the palm side of the thumb, index, middle fingers, as well as the inside half of the ring finger and muscle power to the thumb. When this nerve becomes pinched, numbness, tingling, and sometimes pain of the affected fingers and hand may occur and radiate into the forearm.

To diagnose the condition the proper clinical exam must be performed. This exam includes both orthopedic and neurologic tests to see if the median nerve is actually trapped and irritated by the carpal tunnel. It is possible for the median, radial, or ulnar nerve to be compressed or entrapped somewhere up the arm which can cause similar symptoms to carpal tunnel syndrome.

Once a diagnosis has been made its time to make a treatment decision.

All natural treatments should be the first option. Natural treatments such as chiropractic care to work on joint mechanics and muscle imbalances. A chiropractor can work with you to set up your workstation to avoid potential dangers to your wrist and hand.

Active release technique (ART) by a certified provider is the most powerful treatment to break nerve entrapments in the arm and clear carpal tunnel. ART works to break adhesions and scar tissue throughout a muscle.

Splints and braces typically do not work for pain relief long term.

It turns out the most popular treatment is surgery. Surgery can also leave you in worse shape than you were in before. Plus symptoms do reoccur after surgery.

The carpal tunnel cure is one of the most common surgical procedures in the United States. Generally recommended if symptoms last for 6 months, surgery involves severing the band of tissue around the wrist to reduce pressure on the median nerve.

This surgery does not require an overnight hospital stay and is done under local anesthesia. Surgery is expensive and not guaranteed. I would put surgery at the bottom of your list for possible carpal tunnel relief treatments.
