The carpal tunnel is a canal connecting the forearm and hand. Carpal tunnel syndrome pain and numbness is due to compression of the median nerve traveling through the canal.
Treating Carpal Tunnel with Acupuncture
Acupuncture is an effective treatment modality for patients with carpal tunnel syndrome. Independent investigations confirm that acupuncture is more effective than usual care, including anti-inflammatory medications. It can successfully alleviate pain, inflammation, numbness and restores motor dexterity.
Dr. Sheng inserts needles around ankles and feet to avoid local nerve (median nerve) irritation.
