Carpal Tunnel Syndrome Treatment Methods

Carpel tunnel syndrome is one of the most common types of neuropathy affecting millions of people by restricting movement of hands and fingers and causing chronic pain and numbness due to median nerve compression. CTS is primarily caused by engaging the hands, wrists and elbows in repetitious movements without stopping periodically to move these body parts in different ways. People susceptible to carpel tunnel syndrome include typists, machinists, people who play a musical instrument for a living and construction workers, although anytime you consistently engage in an activity that involves using your fingers, hands and wrists for hours each day, you should consider yourself at risk for developing CPT. Other factors contributing to a diagnosis of CPT include obesity, alcoholism, previous bone fractures in the hands and wrists and suffering from rheumatoid arthritis.

Treatment Methods
Depending on the seriousness of a case of carpal tunnel syndrome, treatment methods range from noninvasive treatments involving rest and appropriate pain medication or out-patient surgery to extreme relieve pressure on the median nerve. Severe symptoms that often require surgery to relieve them involve loss of feeling in the affected hand and a worsening inability to grasp objects sufficiently enough to prevent them from falling out of the hand.

Mild to moderate symptoms of carpel tunnel syndrome that do not affect the strength of the hands and fingers but are painful and restrictive may be alleviated by performing the following actions:
Have a physician evaluate your overall health to determine whether another medical problem may be exacerbating or even causing symptoms of CPT.
Avoiding repetitive activities if possible or reduce the amount of the time you engage in these activities. If your work involves repetitious hand movements, you might need to take some time off or ask to be put on another task.
Wearing stretch bandages or splints around the affected wrist to facilitate healing by keeping it straight.
Although ibuprofen will not "cure" a case of carpal tunnel syndrome, it can relieve the inflammation and pain associated with CPT. Some doctors may suggest an injection of corticosteroids to reduce swelling and inflammation if ibuprofen or other nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory medication does not work to ease pain.

To avoid the gastrointestinal side affects of NSAIDs and the pain of a corticosteroid injection, people suffering from carpal tunnel syndrome can opt to use the natural, pain-relieving ingredients found in Ateevia Botanica. Rich in flavonoids and other phytonutrients, Ateevia topicals rapidly inhibit the inflammatory process by interfering with histamine release and encouraging healing of hands, fingers and wrists affected by CPT. Easy and convenient to use, Ateevia can be massaged into the skin up to four times a day to sooth pain and soreness without worrying about possible side affects associated with prescription medications or outpatient surgery.
