Acupuncture for Carpal Tunnel Syndrome


By A. Devia

According to Chinese medicine, Carpal Tunnel Syndrome can be caused by general body imbalance- spleen vacuity, liver depression or energy deficiency- causing vital energy (chi) stagnation, water retention or blood stasis around the tunnel.  The treatment principle is to concurrently treat the general body condition and the local affected area.  Clinical research has verified that acupuncture works very well for carpal tunnel syndrome.

Using the traditional needling technique, certain acupuncture points, based on the general body condition, are picked to restore the body’s equilibrium.  The points to treat spleen vacuity, liver depression and energy deficiency are in the leg, the feet and the head.  A variety of local points around the hand and wrist are beneficial, depending on if the symptoms are limited to the hand and wrist or involve the forearm, shoulder or neck area.

While the patient is reclining on his back or side, the needles are carefully and painlessly inserted into the points and kept in position 15 to 30 minutes.  A case of carpal tunnel syndrome that has existed less then 6 months usually can be cured in 3 to 6 treatments.  The longer the condition, the more treatment needed.  There are no special restrictions after treatment, and patients are free to use their hands in normal ways.
