: I've started to get the first signs of CTS and would like to keep it at that. My right hand gets a little cold and numb sometimes.. with some pain every once in awhile. My hands still have nearly full strength and all but I want to keep it. I've started taking a Vitamin B-Complex and more Calcium every day. Well, I was wondering what other herbs/vitamins I could take that might help. Also has Chiroprators helped anyone?

About 3 years ago I had CTS and I first went through an Acupunturist & found no relief,
I went through a Chiropractor & found no relief. I ended up getting surgery & it was effective for
me. I ended up switching jobs & ended up working in a more repetative field & my wrists
started hurting again, so I went to a Chiro who was reccomended by the Physician Asst.
& had excellent resuts with him.
The bottom line really depends on how your body responds to the treatment & to find the best
Chiropractor who has treated these cases helped them. Get referrals.
Another trick that the Chiro taught me is to get tape, fold it in half, so when you wrap it around
your wrist the hairs don't get caught. With the excess sticky side, you will use it & hold
everything in place. YOu get the thumb & pinkie & hold it together, while wrapping the tape
around it. Make sure it's tight, but not too tight that it will cut off circulation. It does provide
relief, because he said it helps do something with the Carpal Tunnel - I can't remember what.
Sleep with the brace & keep the tape on. It may look weird, but it should relief some pain.
