I have it but sought treatment that was non-invasive (refused surgery) with
a chiropractor who used the B.E.S.T. (I think this stands for Bio-Energetic
Synthesis Technique) method. It is not a crack and pop treatment like you
would normally associate with chiropractors. They use accupressure
They used ice packs and a TENS unit and weight lifting exercise to
strengthen my Neck (!) It is long term and took about six months. My
problem has not returned and I pound a computer and a calculator all day at
the job and then every free moment is spent quilting, sewing and
crosstitching. Several co-workers had carpal tunnel also and opted for
immediate gratification and had the surgery.
All of them now say the problem has returned and they have impaired
function in their hands. They all agree that surgery does not work and in
some cases causes more harm.
My Chiropractor advised that using the exercises for strengthening the neck
is used because that is where the nerves for the hands are located. They
branch out from the neck and go to the arms and end in the hands.
This father and son's team goes all over the world teaching their method so
call and ask your local chiropractor about this. I have no affiliation
with the doctors or clinics just belong to their list of satisfied
