Traditional Chinese Medicine is very effective in treating the symptoms of carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS ) which is an injury associated with the peripheral nerve tissues and their responses. CTS is a nerve entrapment which manifests itself as pain, numbness, or weakness in the forearm, wrist, or hand. People with this condition can experience difficulty in discerning hot from cold sensations while others experience it as a deterioration of local tendons, muscles, ligaments, and sinew. It can be brought on from an injury to the nerves or as a side effect of pregnancy.
Recent studies show that acupuncture when combined with moxibustion is effective in treating the peripheral nerve tissue and improving thumb-to-wrist sensory conduction velocity.
In Care Cure Acupuncture clinics acupuncture and moxibustion are used to alleviate pain and heal the damaged tissues of people suffering from CTS. Acupuncture is a process of inserting small, disposable, painless, needles into acupoints on the body, while moxibustion is applied by lighting a smokeless moxa cigar and placing it into a moxibustion box which is placed on acupoints on the body.
Over the years Care Cure has treated many patients with CTS and almost all say they found a significant improvement in their condition.
