Getting wrist pain while working on computers? Don't go for surgery. Homeopathic treatment for Carpal Tunnel Syndrome can solve your pain permanently. This article explains what is Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, its causes, signs and Symptoms and how homeopathic treatment for Carpal Tunnel Syndrome can give permanent relief.
Carpus is the Latin term for ‘wrist’.
Carpal Tunnel Syndrome is a medical condition due to compression of the median nerve whilst it runs through a passage in the wrist called the carpal tunnel, a narrow path that’s made up of bone and ligament. It is a painful syndrome affecting millions of people who are prone to median nerve entrapment. When the nerve becomes entrapped, they can become very inflamed and produce symptoms like shooting pain, tingling numbness in the hands and various other sensations.
Median nerve travels across through the length of the entire arm, and ends in the hand. The nerve controls the movements of your thumb and all the fingers except the last tiny pinky one. Hence, the pressure on the nerve causes numbness, tingling, or weakness in your hand.
The main symptoms are burning pain, numbness and tingling sensations in the thumb, index finger, middle finger and the thumb side of the ring finger. Typically, pain is the most troublesome at night or first thing in the morning. Moreover, pain might be radiating and may occasionally involve the whole arm.
Grip strength may weaken causing trouble in holding things and clumsiness in hands. And, after a long period of time the muscles at the base of the thumb get affected and atrophied and hence, get waste away causing weakness in the hands.
The onset of symptoms is typically gradual and more during the night. Initially, one might notice their fingers ‘fall asleep’ and become numb at night. Thus, you may wake up with tingling numbness in your hands that may run all the way to the shoulders. During the day, the symptoms might aggravate while holding something with your wrist bent, or while driving or reading a book.
In most cases, both hands are affected.
Carpal tunnel syndrome tends to come on slowly and get worse with time. But if you treat it early on, you can slow it down and in fact even stop it in time. Early treatment also makes for a shorter recovery time.
Traditionally, in the treatment provided by modern medicine, one usually starts with options like wrist braces and splints, steroids, OTC painkillers like aspirin and ibuprofen. Doctors usually recommend making a few modifications in the working habits like taking short breaks for 10 mins every hour, or changing and alternating the use of your hands once in a while. While all these methods might help, they won't cure your carpal tunnel syndrome permanently. At the best, they would only give you short-term relief as you try other treatments in vain. And for more severe cases, doctors might even suggest surgery. Surgical decompression might help, but sometimes your symptoms might not go away completely. Well, on the other hand Homeopathy deals with the same condition a little differently. It does not try to alleviate the signs and symptoms of the patient's suffering temporarily, but rather seeks out for best treatment possible for the man.
In cases if you experience tingling in the thumb and fingers, weakness or are struggling with the grip of your hand, you should see your doctor right away.
From yoga and physical therapy to surgery, you have a lot of options when it comes to the treatment of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome. But what helps your friend or neighbor may not necessarily work for you. You may need to try out different approaches, indeed the best one to get the relief you most need. Other than the regular hot or cold fomentation on the wrist, and the temporary relief methods, We, at HomoeoCare concentrate on treating everything from the root of the problem and try giving a cure that is more towards permanency. Carpal tunnel syndrome is not the result of a problem with the carpal tunnel, instead, it's a symptom raised by a nerve that is entrapped in the wrist. For this reason, our homeopathic treatment includes relieving pressure on the nerve that can further irritate nerves and aggravate the symptoms.
