Resolving Wrist Pain

In the realm of wrist health, there’s an astonishing treatment that many people are unaware of – acupuncture. This ancient practice holds remarkable efficacy in alleviating wrist pain, including conditions like carpal tunnel syndrome, as well as aiding in post-fracture care. [1]

The intricate network connecting our wrist, elbow, shoulder, neck, and head resembles the delicate strings of a marionette, all converging into the wrist and hand. Within this complex system, the wrist and hand demonstrate remarkable agility, tirelessly performing countless tasks. However, due to the complexity involved, issues may arise, and it’s my role as a practitioner to identify and address them.

During acupuncture treatments, I employ a comprehensive approach to your unique pain and discomfort. I carefully assess the movements that worsen your symptoms, unravelling the specific strings that may be too loose or too tight. Sometimes, these strings become entangled, resulting in trapped nerves and persistent pain.

With specialized needling techniques, soothing massage, and targeted cupping, I expertly navigate through the interconnected layers, addressing the root cause of your discomfort. Additionally, I harness the therapeutic warmth of Moxibustion, enhancing the overall effectiveness of the treatment and accelerating the healing process. [2]

Carpal tunnel syndrome, a commonly experienced wrist problem, is an area in which acupuncture truly shines. Many people are astounded by the extent to which tightness in the wrist can radiate throughout the entire interconnected system. Acupuncture has consistently demonstrated exceptional results, providing much-needed relief from carpal tunnel syndrome, alleviating pain, and restoring optimal functionality to the wrist. [3]

Furthermore, I specialize in post-fracture care for the hand, wrist, and arm. This often overlooked aspect of acupuncture treatment offers tremendous benefits. By employing targeted treatments, we can support your body’s natural healing processes, aiding in the restoration of movement and functionality to the affected areas.

It’s important to recognize that many individuals remain unaware of the effectiveness of acupuncture for wrist pain, carpal tunnel, and post-fracture care. My passion lies in changing this narrative, as I firmly believe that acupuncture can be a game-changer in the realm of wrist health.
