Homeopathic remedies to help treat carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS).
These homeopathic medicines include Arnica, Hypericum and Ruta.
Carpal tunnel syndrome is a condition that causes pressure on the median nerve, which is the nerve located in the wrist. The median nerve is what supplies both movement and feeling to the hand. Carpal tunnel syndrome often causes tingling, weakness, numbness and muscle damage to the fingers and hand. Other, less common, symptoms include pain that extends into the elbow, wasting away of the muscle under the thumb, weak grip or difficulty carrying objects, issues with finger movement and pain in the wrist or hand.
People with carpal tunnel syndrome are also told they should use special devices to help improve their condition and prevent further damage. These devices usually include computer devices, such as special keyboards and mouse pads. Surgery and prescription drugs for carpal tunnel are usuaully only used for more severe cases. Homeopathy is a good way to help relieve the symptoms of carpal tunnel syndrome, and can also help to prevent further damage.
