Carpal Tunnel Surgery: A Natural Alternative

Carpal tunnel surgery image

If you’ve been living with the burning pain, weakness and decreased ability brought on by carpal tunnel syndrome, you’re probably willing to try almost anything to find relief – including surgery. But before you call a surgeon, learn how many people are using a drug-free, all-natural approach to relieve their carpal tunnel pain and address its underlying cause – without scalpels!

Carpal Tunnel Release Surgery

In carpal tunnel surgery (also called carpal tunnel release surgery), the transverse carpal ligament is severed. This releases the pressure on the median nerve; it’s this pressure or nerve irritation within the carpal tunnel that causes carpal tunnel symptoms. However, a surgical approach only addresses the symptoms of carpal tunnel syndrome; without addressing the underlying cause, there is a significant chance of carpal tunnel symptoms returning after surgery. Other downsides of surgery include:

  • 1 – 2 weeks off work if the surgery is on your non-dominant hand
  • 6 – 12 weeks off work if the surgery is on your dominant hand
  • Stitches and scarring
  • Expense ranging from $5, 000 – $10, 000
  • Possible permanent loss of grip strength

The biggest downside is that frequently carpal tunnel syndrome returns, causing many people to undergo repeated carpal tunnel surgery. Fortunately, a safe, all-natural approach already exists that has a high success rate in treating both the symptoms and the underlying cause of carpal tunnel syndrome. And this drug-free approach has zero side effects!

Underlying Causes of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

Most people know that carpal tunnel symptoms often appear when the hands or wrists are subjected to repetitive stresses, such as typing for long periods, clicking a mouse repeatedly or using vibrating tools like jackhammers, to name just a few. Since the resulting pain appears in the wrist, it makes sense to treat the wrist, right?

Well, yes and no. When any of the tiny bones surrounding the carpal tunnel becomes misaligned, it applies pressure to the median nerve, causing the burning and numbness associated with carpal tunnel syndrome. However, for carpal tunnel sufferers, there is often also a misalignment in the elbow, shoulder, neck or upper spine as well (sometimes referred to as “double-crush syndrome”) – and treating just the wrist won’t address the other issues. That’s why so often carpal tunnel symptoms return, even after surgery: the full underlying cause of the problem has not been addressed. But a solution that looks at the entire body and examines and treats causes rather than just symptoms is available.

Natural Healing

Rather than using drugs or surgery to treat localized symptoms, chiropractic works with the body’s own natural healing abilities to restore optimal health and function, from the source of the problem all the way to the outer symptoms. Maybe you’ve tried chiropractic for back pain in the past, or maybe chiropractic is new to you – either way, you owe it to yourself to give this natural approach a try before resorting to a painful carpal tunnel surgery that most likely won’t address the entire problem.

Our sponsors are doctors who care about you and who want to see you get truly well, which means alleviating your symptoms and correcting the source of the pain. To do so, he or she will ask lots of questions and then conduct a complete examination to determine whether or not you are a good candidate for chiropractic care. Afterwards, the doctor will explain the results of this exam to you and recommend a plan of action designed to address the underlying cause of your carpal tunnel syndrome.

Chiropractic – the most popular alternative health care discipline in the world – is made up of highly educated, caring professionals. The federal government, every state and most insurance companies recognize chiropractic care as a legitimate health care option. In fact, many insurance companies insist that you try a natural approach such as chiropractic before resorting to surgery for carpal tunnel syndrome.

Chiropractic is that natural approach. Take action now by calling a sponsoring chiropractor near your home or office.

Don’t Call the Surgeon Yet…

Before you opt for surgery, remember that chiropractic is safe, all-natural, non-invasive and effective! Besides the risks inherent in any surgery, these are some downsides associated with carpal tunnel release surgery:

Procedure Under twilight anesthesia, the surgeon makes an incision in the wrist, then severs the transverse carpal ligament
Recovery Depending on such factors as whether the surgery is on your dominant or non-dominant hand, the formation of scar tissue and what kind of work you do, you can be off work for as long as three months.
Expense Expect to pay between $5, 000 and $10, 000 for surgery and after-care; insurance plans differ widely in how much they will cover.
Outcome Total relief is achieved in less than 60% of surgeries. Scar tissue formation can sometimes cause the carpal tunnel to narrow even more, creating more pain. Within two years of surgery, many people report their carpal tunnel symptoms have returned. Range of motion and grip strength are typically permanently compromised after surgery.
