Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
The Carpal Tunnel is a crowded tissue structure in the wrist that contains the median nerve which is responsible for sensation and mobility in the thumb and first three fingers. Tendons for the first three fingers also run through the narrow tunnel.
Carpal Tunnel Syndrome is caused by pinching or compression of the tunnel. The condition is more common in women and often occurs during pregnancy.
What are the symptoms of Carpal Tunnel:
- Tingling in the thumb or first three fingers
- Shock-like feeling or numbness
- Numbness can travel up your arm
- Weakness in hand
- Lose grip or drop objects
What causes Carpal Tunnel?
- Wrist fracture or arthritis that modifies the bones of the wrist
- Any damage to the nerves caused by diabetes or inflammation
- Obesity, thyroid disease, kidney disease and menopause
How is Carpal Tunnel diagnosed?
Most importantly, Dr. Greenberg and his team will assess each patient individually, reviewing their health history, pertinent radiographic studies such as X-rays and MRIs, and perform a Comprehensive Kinetic examination of your arm, wrist and hand. He also takes a holistic approach and will inquire about activities at work, home and play that could have led to the carpal tunnel syndrome.
Carpal Tunnel symptoms can be easily misdiagnosed, which is why a comprehensive diagnosis is very important. If you don’t follow the kinetic chain, you can miss the real cause of the pain completely. For example, a damaged bicipital tendon of the shoulder, or referred pain from the elbow is very similar to pain symptoms from carpal tunnel.
Is there a natural, non-surgical alternative for treating Carpal Tunnel Syndrome?
Dr. Greenberg created the Comprehensive Kinetic Regeneration treatment to empower the body to heal itself. He and his team use Prolotherapy, Platelet-Rich Plasma and Stem Cell treatments, to activate the body’s natural healing components, including stem cells.
Dr. Greenberg uses KRT Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) injections for carpal tunnel syndrome. PRP treatments help promote the patients’ own healing factors and cells so that they can regenerate tissue, cartilage and bone systems in the wrist. Dr. Greenberg will discuss the objectives of each treatment and explain the therapeutic option that is most appropriate for your case.
Kinetic Regeneration Therapy is a good choice for people who are looking for a non-invasive alternative to surgery. KRT treatments have lower infection risks than surgeries, shorter recovery times and are opioid-free. Dr. Greenberg is a holistically-centered physician who not only treats your physical injury but he also addresses You. We support your recovery through proper nutrition, supplements, and innovative therapies to nurture a sense of wellness for your body and mind.
