Raleigh Acupuncture Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
Learn how we treat carpal tunnel in this video.
Maybe you have not gotten a formal diagnosis, but you have wrist pain. Other symptoms can include numbness in the hands and fingers, forearm pain, or you wake up during the night with pain or numbness in your hands and fingers. You most likely have carpal tunnel syndrome and we can help you.
How Acupuncture Works
In Chinese medicine pain comes from blockage in the channels. What are channels? There are 14 channels that run through our bodies. One of them is responsible for carpal tunnel syndrome, or wrist/hand/finger pain and numbness. Acupuncture opens blocked channels. We treat the channels and train them to remain open. When we do, pain is resolved.
Why Channels Get Blocked
Repetitive movement can block channels. That’s why using a computer mouse all day causes wrist pain. Typing can also be a trigger for this condition. Other activities can include cutting hair, painting, writing with a pen for long periods of time, writing with chalk on a board, etc. Occasionally people will develop this condition out of the blue, with no apparent trigger. But the root cause of the pain is always a blocked channel.
What To Expect
Acupuncture is very relaxing. The needles we use are sterile, single use and hair thin. Patients often fall asleep on the table during treatment. They wake feeling refreshed and rejuvenated.
We have a 95% success rate resolving this condition. That’s why you should always try the Raleigh Acupuncture carpal tunnel syndrome treatment first before trying a more invasive procedure like surgery or cortisone injections.

What our Clients are Saying
I’m a massage therapist and never had a problem with wrist or hand pain until last year. My whole hand (right worse than left) starting throbbing and going numb with searing pain through the wrist, thumb and pointer finger. It was waking me several nights a week and interfering with my work. I started getting treated at Raleigh Acupuncture. It has dramatically reduced my pain, to the point where I can work and am not waking up at night. I think the nature of my work puts alot of strain on my wrists, but I’m not ready to give up my profession. I’ll need regular acupuncture for this, but I don’t mind. It’s the only thing that’s helped.
I’m a computer programmer and have been sitting at a desk working a mouse for years. It finally caught up with me a few months ago. I developed a terrible pain in my wrist that made my whole hand go numb, especially at night. The acupuncturist said the condition was easy to treat. My friend had surgery for the same thing. I figured I might as well try a few treatments. That’s all it took. The pain went away and hasn’t returned. Thank you Raleigh Acupuncture!
Raleigh Acupuncture cured my carpal tunnel syndrome for good! This has been plaguing me for years, waking me at night. My hands would go numb and shooting pains would go up my arms. I was nervous about the treatments beforehand, but they babied me! It wasn’t bad at all. Anyway, the pain is gone, gone, gone! I’m hooked on acupuncture now.
