At Old Bridge Acupuncture, we're experts at treating and fixing Carpal Tunnel Syndrome. You can expect a gradual resolution of your hand pain and numbness and a return to normal hand, wrist and finger function with acupuncture treatment.
In fact, there's good evidence to support the use of acupuncture treatment for Carpal Tunnel Syndrome. In a randomized clinical trial comparing Acupuncture vs oral corticosteroids for treatment of Carpal Tunnel, Acupuncture provided superior relief at one year follow up.

Furthermore, it was recently demonstrated that not only does Acupuncture improve nerve conduction through the carpal tunnel, it also resolves negative changes in the patient's brains that co-occur with carpal tunnel! These positive changes were documented via fMRI of patients' brains. For more info: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/28334999 .
