If you have Carpal Tunnel Syndrome you probably have questions. We didn't learn much about how our bodies work when we were in school and neither did most of our doctors when they were in medical school.
Doctors learn about fixing and medicating symptoms. Carpal Tunnel Syndrome is a "syndrome." A syndrome is a bunch of symptoms.
So, can you get rid of your symptoms and heal naturally from Carpal Tunnel Syndrome? Or will you need surgery?
Here's the story my client Betty told me.
Betty told me that she was diagnosed with Carpal Tunnel Syndrome about 15 years ago. Her doctors advised her to have surgery.
She did not want to have surgery. So she didn't.
Instead she started wearing a wrist brace at night and she made some changes in the way she worked. Betty worked in a cafeteria and did lots of heavy lifting. By and by,she retired.
She never had the carpal tunnel surgery. She did get better.
Bodies are smart. They can heal naturally. Your body, too! :-)
Betty told me that just recently she started having carpal tunnel symptoms again. So she got out her wrist brace to wear at night and, again, her symptoms are going away. Sometimes it's just that simple.
Sometimes there are several causes for your symptoms and each one needs to be addressed.
Sometimes the cause of your symptoms is not a common one. An educated patient gets well more quickly. You may have to find the information that will help you get rid of the root cause of your symptoms. You may have to take some type of action to get better. That's okay! I've had to do this many times for my own symptoms.
People sometimes do need surgery for Carpal Tunnel Syndrome but, much of the time, they can get rid of the CAUSE(S) of their symptoms naturally.
Sometimes surgery IS the answer. If bones or a cyst are pressing into your carpal tunnel space, surgery may be required.
Now, I have to tell you. I LOVE doctors. I LOVE surgeons. Without the skilled hands of surgeons, I would not be here today talking with you.
But surgery is not always the best answer. So, why does your doctor offer surgery?
1. That's what most medical schools teach--medicine and surgery--to solve patient complaints.
2. And many doctors don't know any differently since it's not what they learned in medical school.
3. And even if a doctor does understand the value of self-help or natural help to help you get better, he or she doesn't have the time to instruct you.
4. Many doctors don't believe their patient will follow through with self-help.
5. The doctor may think you want "instant" relief.
6. And, sometimes there is financial benefit to the doctor.
Also, here's a little tip I learned first hand:
If you want an opinion, do NOT go to a surgeon! Why not?
His specialty is surgery. Surgery is what he knows. Surgery is how he or she "fixes" things. Almost always, the opinion will be...surgery!
And, surgery doesn't provide "instant relief." It hurts. You have to heal from the surgery. Some people do not have any relief after the surgery. And some patients start having symptoms again after a couple of years. (That is because the surgery did not address the CAUSE of your pain--only the symptoms.)
Betty and other people have gotten rid of their Carpal Tunnel Syndrome naturally. These are the types of comments I have heard from them:
"My pain is gone."
"The massage therapist was awesome. My pain is gone."
"I'm playing the drums again after 20 years."
"My doctor is amazed how quickly I'm healing."
And even, "I still have some pain but I am no longer afraid. I understand how my body works now and that I can heal." I LOVE that! That's what I want for you--no fear.
Almost everyone CAN heal naturally.
