Carpel Tunnel Syndrome typically is a slowly developing condition that results from repetitive stress to the joint at the wrist. At that point in the arm is a narrowing of the tendons and nerves that pass through the Carpel tunnel structure. For many the pain can be debilitating and reoccur often even after conventional treatments are applied. The most invasive treatment is a surgery on the wrist.
For patients with a chronic carpel tunnel condition that are seeking an alternative to medications, rest and surgery there is an option. There is a pioneering group of doctors, who are seeking innovative solutions to issues of chronic pain and some acute joint injuries. They have developed and implemented approaches that harness our bodies’ own healing and regenerative powers to not only relieve pain and restore mobility — but in a manner that has minimal risks or side effects. A new method named “Needle Surgery” has been developed that combines micro-incisions done by a needle combined with the injection of activated PRP. PRP is a concentrated portion of your blood containing platelets, stem cells and growth factors that when activated, is then injected into a needle surgery site.
The advantages of needle surgery are that the procedure does not require any incision. Needle Surgery is done under local anesthesia when it’s required, while in many cases it is not. The recovery time for treatment of chronic pain conditions is measured in hours and days. While the fully recover from acute injuries is weeks. The complication occurrence is minimal as there is no incision of the skin.
