CARPAL TUNNEL SYNDROME
Carpal Tunnel Syndrome is thought to be the result of excessive pressure on the median nerve as it passes into the wrist on the bottom and the transverse carpal ligament on the top. Any condition which causes irritation or inflammation of the tendons can result in swelling, and inevitably, pressure on the median nerve. Eventually, this pressure impairs normal nerve function and is followed by pain and numbness in the hand.
For those suffering from this repetitive stress injury, the pain, numbness, tingling and burning sensations, weakness or loss of grip, and loss of sleep due to discomfort can be a serious and debilitating impairment. Most often, this is an injury which develops over time rather than suddenly. However, in some cases, it can be due to a previous injury which caused some slight misalignment of the wrist bones. Awkward or repetitive movements often aggravate such an injury.
Comparison of Traditional Surgery vs. New Non-Surgical Treatment
Confirmable by Carpal Tunnel view X-ray, plane wrist X-ray and MRI.
Rehabilitate the wrist flexibility and strength to create stability and allow healing.
Support the patient nutritionally to reduce swelling and maintain the presence of products necessary for healing the damaged nerve and joints.
(The treatment directly addressed the cause of the problem. It returns the tunnel pressure to normal by removing the bony compression.)
Unsupported by diagnostic X-ray, post-surgical studies or MRI research.
(The treatment does not address the possible cause of the pressure, which is stated to be tendon swelling and scar tissue).
