AT LAST! A DOCTOR WHO ASKS:
“Why Haven’t Carpal Tunnel Syndrome Sufferers Been Told These Facts?”
Discover this often overlooked, SECOND problem area that may actually be the link to finally
killing your carpal tunnel syndrome pain forever!
You’ve tried everything. You sleep with a wrist splint…tried punishing therapy…you are half conscious from taking pain pills all day…you’ve tried painful injections that gave you only temporary relief at best…and your doctors are now telling you that you may need surgery because nothing else has worked.
If you’re like most carpal tunnel sufferers, your worst fear is that the pain will continue to get worse, leaving you unable to work at your job, or even do simple things that you used to take for granted, like picking up a glass without dropping it…folding laundry…sleeping soundly for an entire eight hours… playing with your children…or just being able to be self-sufficient and take care of yourself every day.
Even worse, you know that the more time goes by, the more permanent the nerve damage becomes.
Here Is What You May Not Know
If anything I just said describes you, there’s a good chance your carpal tunnel syndrome has involved more than just your wrist area.
If you are STILL suffering with the torturous pain of carpal tunnel syndrome, you’ve exhausted every option, and nothing has worked for you…then this may be the most important report you EVER read about your carpal tunnel syndrome.
And, if I’m guessing right, what I’m about to tell you will actually shock and delight you, and maybe even get you a little angry…all at the same time.
Here’s what it’s all about: My name is Dr. Patrick Lowe,D.C., and I’ve made carpal tunnel syndrome a study. Over the 11 years that I’ve been in practice, I’ve relentlessly pursued new methods to treat and help my patients finally kill the pain of carpal tunnel syndrome.
Here is what I discovered that may actually be the key to “unlock” your pain and suffering forever…
Believe it or not, top researchers and medical experts are now pointing to a SECOND area of involvement (besides the wrist) that is often overlooked and more important, once corrected, may be the “link” to finally ending your pain and suffering.
The condition is called “Double Crush Syndrome” and it involves a second area (the lower neck) that causes carpal tunnel syndrome pain to worsen. When treatment is directed to the wrist only, this second area of involvement ultimately leaves the carpal tunnel syndrome uncorrected (and you still in unrelenting pain).
This May Be The Exact Reason Why You Haven’t Been Able To Be Free Of Your Carpal Tunnel Syndrome Pain
The “Double Crush Syndrome” is described as a compression of the nerve in two different areas, usually a distance from each other. A growing number of researchers are demonstrating a connection between the nerve being compressed at carpal tunnel area and compressed at a SECOND area in the lower part of the neck.
“The nerve is “crushed” or irritated in the spine, “priming” more distant areas of the nerve for dysfunction when that part is stressed (second “crush”)”.
Here’s a simple explanation…
Picture a garden hose for a minute. It can be kinked right at the source of where the water starts…or…
anywhere along the hose up to the handle.
It’s really the same way with the nerves that cross through your carpal tunnel. You can develop pinching or kinks anywhere along the way to the carpal tunnel (started at the neck). That’s why it’s often missed, under-diagnosed and often not completely treated.
Just listen to some of the research on this condition…
° Researchers Upton and McComas, Lancet, believe that “67%-75% of patients studied who had carpal tunnel syndrome…also showed some degree of nerve root irritation in the lower neck area.”
° According to Lee Ostrman, MD, Ortho, Clinics of North America vol. 19, Jan 98 reveals that… “Carpal tunnel syndrome is often the result of a combination of factors that increase pressure on the median nerve and tendons in the carpal tunnel, rather than a problem with the nerve itself.
° From the Journal of Hand Surgery…”A significant correlation was found between carpal tunnel syndrome and neck arthritis.”
° The following comes from the medical textbook “Surgery of the Peripheral Nerve”… “Nerve compression near the cervical spine (neck) is found in people with carpal tunnel syndrome.”
° This study from Nemoto et al from the Second International Congress, describes why a neck problem makes carpal tunnel syndrome worse… “Nerve compression in the neck will block the flow of necessary cellular material to the end of the nerve in the wrist, making it more susceptible to injury”.
And, this is only a fraction of the research that describes this condition.
The array and amount of research is impossible for anyone with carpal tunnel syndrome to ignore.
Here’s Why It’s Often
Overlooked Or Under Treated…
Most of the time, the problem often goes undiagnosed. Chasing the symptoms results in treating the wrist only and, as a result, missing other areas like the neck that may be involved in the problem.
For complete healing to take place, each of these areas has to be properly diagnosed and then properly treated.
In most cases, only one area gets treated, leaving you with undiagnosed, untreated problems that still need to be fixed…and are often still causing your original symptoms of pain and numbness in your hand and wrist.
It’s frustrating and emotionally exhausting.
What Makes Our Approach
It all starts with diagnosing the problem correctly. Believe it or not, with a few simple, painless tests, we can determine immediately and EXACTLY where your problem is coming from.
The results of these tests let us know if you will be a good candidate for our program.
More important, we address EVERY component of your problem, including…posture…lifestyle adjustments…joint alignment in the wrist and neck (if necessary)…stretching and lengthening and stretching of muscles and tendons back to normal…and gently releasing entrapments that may be compressing your nerves.
That’s why we’ve developed a systematic and comprehensive approach to first diagnosing and then treating each layer of your problem with a variety of painless techniques, including leading edge new techniques, and advanced, state-of-the art technologies like cold laser and gentle Chiropractic care.
And, all of these therapies are totally natural, so you don’t have to worry about horrible side-effects as with many medications or dangerous surgeries.
The really good news is… this isn’t something you have to continue to do for the rest of your life. So it is not a big commitment.
And, the really amazing part is… that it works with most hand and wrist numbness and pain in most cases…
regardless of what you’ve tried in the past…and regardless of your age.
If you’ve been praying for an answer to your hand and wrist pain…
This May Be It!Share
