- This ancient Chinese medicine, which is the practice of inserting fine needles into the skin at specific points on the body, can be effective for several neurological conditions, including carpal tunnel syndrome. Acupuncture promotes circulation, restores balance to your nervous system and brings relief from pain. Aligned Modern Health has five trained acupuncturists on staff.
- Strategic manipulation of the hand, wrist and spine has been shown to ease carpal tunnel pain. The number of sessions you require with a certified Aligned Modern Health chiropractor depends on the severity of your symptoms and how quickly a patient responds to carpal tunnel treatment.
Additional care and treatment therapy options include wearing splints at night and specific exercises designed to strengthen your wrist and hands. Yoga, which stretches muscles and promotes overall balance, has also been proven to work with many patients.
There are some indications that taking vitamin B6 supplements can help relieve your carpal tunnel symptoms, but any medicine or vitamin supplement regiments should be reviewed by a physician.

YOU MAY NEED CARPAL TUNNEL TREATMENT AND NOT REALIZE IT
Carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS) treatment is one of the most common reasons that U.S workers require extended time off. Each year the condition costs more than $2 billion a year in missed work days.
A sufferer of carpal tunnel syndrome who seeks treatment when symptoms first appear has a greater chance of recovering without surgery than someone who puts off treatment.
You may be developing CTS if you notice tingling, numbness, or a burning in either wrist or hand. Paradoxically, these sensations may be most intense when you are trying to sleep at night, when you are away from work and when your wrist is bent for an extended period.
The condition typically occurs in your dominant hand, but nearly half of carpal tunnel syndrome sufferers have symptoms in both hands.
Don’t delay seeking help. The specialists at Aligned Modern Health can determine the best carpal tunnel treatment plan for you. Call us today, with five locations in Chicago, at 773-598-4387.
