Carpal Tunnel Causes
Carpal Tunnel is becoming a more and more common ailment plaguing people who are in developed countries. Sitting at a desk all day, typing up reports and before you know it, you start to feel some intense pain in your wrists and fingers. This is the fist sign of a developing case of carpal tunnel syndrome and should be addressed as soon as possible. The repetitive motion of a task, such as typing can cause your fingers, wrists, and forearms to become weakened over time and start to develop painful side-effects. It’s not only a desk job which will potentially cause carpal tunnel syndrome, but the repetitive motion and heightened strain of nearly any activity will definitely increase your chances of developing such a condition over time.
Carpal Tunnel Side-Effects
Some of carpal tunnel syndrome’s side-effects include:
- Sharp, shooting pains
- Inability to perform a task or activity
- Arthritic-like conditions
- And so much more
These side-effects not only have a physical aspect to them, but they also have a social aspect as well. Say you want to play your favorite sport with your family and friends, with carpal tunnel syndrome you may be limited in how much you can actively participate or you may not even be able to participate whatsoever. This can lead to a series of mental downturns where one can become depressed, anxiety-ridden, and have an overall feeling of malaise. These mental symptoms can then manifest into physical symptoms and before you know it, an issue with your hand has caused a whole host of additional issues to present themselves. This is why it’s so vital you treat your carpal tunnel syndrome as soon as possible, preferably with a natural approach such as acupuncture for carpal tunnel.
How Acupuncture Helps Carpal Tunnel
With acupuncture’s stimulation of the affected nerves in your finger, hand, wrist, and/or forearm area, you’ll be able to have a more promoted blood flow and greater amouts of energy dedicated to the affected area. The nerves will then be stimulated enough to cause the natural healing process to begin its course. Throughout several treatments, you’ll begin to notice first and foremost your pain subsiding. This part of the healing process will expedite your body’s natural healing capabilities as constant pain can be a contributing stressor and cause your body to be in a constant state of “fight-or-flight” mode, leading to an inability to heal. Once the pain subsides, the real healing will begin. This process of stimulating the nerves so blood flow, energy, and positive qi can make its way to the affected area is the root of the acupuncture methodology. With all of these components focusing on such an acute area, the body reacts with an overwhelming feeling of gratitude and the problem begins to correct itself. The premise of acupuncture is allowing the body to heal itself through nerve stimulation and in nearly all cases of ailments, when the body is set back to its original state of natural movement, alignment, blood-flow, and energy flow; you’ll begun to see a great measure of healing begin to occur.
