The #1 Reason Why Carpal Tunnel Treatments FAIL - The Carpal Tunnel Myth, Part 3

The #1 Reason Why Carpal Tunnel Treatments FAIL!

Fortunately for you, if your doctors’ treatments fail, it doesn’t mean you’re incurable. It may be quite likely they were just looking in the wrong place or simply not using the right treatment!

It seems that a huge part of the problem is doctors are so focused on the wrist that they overlook something so incredibly obvious it tends to shock carpal tunnel syndrome sufferers! You see, in order for pain to travel to your brain it has to take a pathway. It needs a road to get there just like you need to take a road to get to your job in the morning. In your body, this road is called your nervous system. And, the weird thing about nerves is if you interfere with the nervous system anywhere along its “road’ it can make you feel pain in other places…like your wrist, hand and fingers! This means it’s possible that…. [Read more →]

Carpal Tunnel Syndrome Myths - The Carpal Tunnel Myth, Part 2

December 17th, 2007 · No Comments

Myth: Ongoing Use of Medications Is Safe And Reasonable Treatment.

Reality: Treating a condition, just by taking drugs, is not only weak at best, but possibly dangerous. I’m amazed how few patients and doctors take drug side effects seriously. YOU should!! Drugs are not the answer and should not be used as an ongoing form of treatment.

Myth: The Ongoing Use of Wrist Splints Is Proper Treatment.

Reality: Wearing wrist splints may seem harmless enough, but they are not a cure. In fact, if you’re only supposed to wear them when you’re in pain, as you get worse you’ll end up wearing the wrist splints more and more. Using them as a crutch will only lead to the formation of abnormal scar tissue in your wrist, making your pain worse and your mobility less! [Read more →]

Carpal Tunnel Syndrome - The Carpal Tunnel Myth, Part 1

December 13th, 2007 · No Comments

The U.S. Department of Labor called Carpal Tunnel Syndrome (CTS) the “chief occupational hazard of the 90’s”… disabling workers in epidemic proportions. Along with low back pain, it’s also the #1 reported medical problem, accounting for about 50% of all work related injuries. And while more than 200,000 surgeries are performed annually, reports have revealed that only about 25% of all patients are able to return to their previous professions following surgery, and up to 36% of carpal tunnel syndrome patients require unlimited medical treatment. Hmm…

Could it be that CTS surgery is largely a crippling mistake?

What’s so dangerous about CTS is that it’s not an injury like a broken bone or a cut or scrape. It comes on slowly. You don’t notice it at first. Or maybe you just brush off the pain thinking it’s nothing. Then it slowly builds and builds. You start feeling numbness and tingling. It gets harder to type. You become more irritable. You start taking pills to get through the day. Finally, one day you realize you just aren’t the same person you used to be. That’s when you go to your family doctor to get checked out. But…

Omega-3 Fatty Acids Help Prevent Colds and Flus

December 7th, 2007 · No Comments

One of the biggest causes of disease and sickness facing our society today comes from inflammation. This inflammation can be traced in large part to the modern diet, which lacks, among many other things, essential Omega-3 Fatty Acids. They’re called “essential” because our bodies don’t produce them on their own, so it’s “essential” that we get them in our diet.

Why are Omega-3 Fatty Acids so important to the body? Well, Omega-3 Fatty Acids are the primary lipids that are used by the body to build a better cell membrane. Oh no, can you feel a biology lesson coming on? [Read more →]
