The Solution for Your Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

Carpal tunnel syndrome is one of the most common nerve disorders, affecting 4-10 million Americans. The symptoms range from mild tingling and numbness in the wrist and fingers, to severe pain and loss of hand mobility and function.

There are several factors that can contribute to your risk of developing carpal tunnel syndrome, and a number of treatment options, depending on the severity of your symptoms and the extent of nerve injury or damage.

At New Hampshire Regenerative Center in Manchester, New Hampshire, Nathaniel Shober, ND, and our team of integrative medicine specialists diagnose your carpal tunnel symptoms and design a customized treatment plan. 

Finding relief for carpal tunnel syndrome

The first step in finding a solution for carpal tunnel syndrome is to get an accurate diagnosis. Issues like wrist strain and arthritis have common and overlapping symptoms with carpal tunnel syndrome, so it can be easy to get them mixed up without a professional diagnosis. 

If you’re experiencing any of the following, contact us as soon as possible to schedule an appointment for an exam:

Dr. Shober and our team start with a comprehensive physical exam and medical history in order to recommend the best treatment. 

Depending on the underlying cause, severity, and your occupation and lifestyle, carpal tunnel syndrome treatment usually involves a combination of treatments. We may recommend physical therapy, bracing or splinting the wrist, and lifestyle modifications, especially if you’re at risk of mechanical or overuse injuries due to your job or physical activities. 

Can you prevent carpal tunnel syndrome?

It depends. Some people have much higher risk factors than others. For example, women can be up to three times more likely than men to develop carpal tunnel syndrome. Pregnancy may also increase your chances of developing it. 

But anyone can develop carpal tunnel syndrome. Here are a few things we recommend you do to prevent or lower your risk:

Most importantly, don’t ignore pain or other symptoms like tingling and numbness. The sooner you get an accurate diagnosis and treatment, the better. You’ll be less likely to develop severe symptoms and have to take time off from work or undergo more intensive treatment.

If you’re concerned about your risk for developing carpal tunnel syndrome, we can help.
