If you're experiencing pain, numbness, weakness, or tingling in the arm or fingers, you're likely suffering from compression of the median nerve, A.K.A. Carpal Tunnel Syndrome. In our society of constant typing on phones and computers, Carpal Tunnel is becoming more and more frequent. It is also often caused by thyroid problems, Rheumatoid Arthritis, or diabetes. No matter the cause, several studies have shown that acupuncture has been shown to be extremely effective at relieving the pain associated with Carpal Tunnel Syndrome. One specific study found that there were healing effects at the source of the pain in the wrists, but moreover that symptoms were reduced on a neurological level as well by "remapping" the brain! How cool! If you're suffering with Carpal Tunnel symptoms, I highly recommend a few visits to your local acupuncturist!
