Many people experience the pain of carpal tunnel syndrome, also associated with pain and numbness in the hands. It could be caused by repetitive motion in the hands or wrists, or even brought on by swelling of the ligaments and tissues during pregnancy. No matter the cause, the symptoms are never pleasant.
Some carpal tunnel sufferers may get surgery before trying other treatment options to relieve the pain and discomfort. Surgery does provide an instant relief quite effectively by cutting through the roof truss and letting the dome widen. The results are usually dramatic and the relieved nerve generally is relieved of pain almost immediately from symptoms of carpal tunnel syndrome. However, one of the less intensive approaches to treating the symptoms of carpal tunnel syndrome is massage.
