Default How can I get relief from Carpal Tunnel Syndrome? - 12-21-2008, 10:29 AM

I am a personal trainer who works out alot. Lately I have developed what I believe is Carpal Tunnel Syndrome. When I touch my wrist I can feel a tingling all the way at the top of my index finger. I hear there are surgical options but I don't want to take that route. What are some solutions for relief?

It sounds like more than Carpel Tunnel syndrome, but also a pinched nerve. You should avoid using that arm for a few days. Give it a rest, and it will be in good shape again. I usually wear a sling or pretend like I am wearing a sling and just keep it at rest in front of my abdomen.

I used to work for a Chiropractor, and we did ultrasound on patients with Carpal Tunnel, and it helped them a lot. This reduces inflammation and breaks up adhesion's.

Firstly, you should have a physician diagnose you. As for treatment, some prescription meds work but I don't like altering my chemical composition so I use ice baths and ultrasound treatment. I mostly use ultrasound as tampamystic suggests, it's very effective.
From previous sport injuries, my doctor advised physiotherapy, where I was treated with ultrasound but that was very expensive so I ordered a portal machine from the internet and now I treat myself when necessary.
But I reiterate you should first figure out exactly what you're specific issue is.
