Are you contemplating carpal tunnel surgery?  If so you should know that surgery for carpal tunnel syndrome is not the only answer.  There are always risks to surgery.  Why do the surgery for carpal tunnel syndrome when there are better options available?

Results Of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome Surgery

Studies show up to 30% of patients have poor grip strength and long-term discomfort at the surgical scar.  Nearly 60% report a recurrence of their symptoms about two years after surgery.  But there is a better solution.

Results Of Nonsurgical Carpal Tunnel Syndrome Treatments

This new method of treatment is non-surgical traction/decompression.  The treatment takes the pinching pressure off the nerve without surgery.  Wouldn’t you rather have a ligament stretched rather than cut?  When the ligament is cut you lose the integrity of the wrist.

In a true clinical study of this treatment conducted at a New York medical center found that:

The long-term results of non-surgical decompression treatment were just as exciting.


Right Wrist – Transverse Carpal Ligament

This picture shows a cut away of a right wrist.  Notice the fibrous band that crosses the wrist.  It is the Transverse Carpal Ligament.  When this ligament shortens it causes a narrowing of the carpal tunnel and nerve compression.  Instead of cutting the ligament in two, this new treatment simply stretches the ligament increasing the space in the carpal tunnel and takes pressure off the nerve, relieving the symptoms.

If you are ready to end the tingling, pain, and sleepless nights now is your time to find out if you may be helped!  We are offering a screening to determine if you are a candidate for this revolutionary non-surgical traction/decompression treatment.  The screening is only $7.00.  Call our office today and tell the receptionist you want to schedule yourself for the carpal tunnel screening.
