    Re: Do I need ACDF???

    Got EMG from Neurologist today. Confirms carpal tunnel for numbness in hands. He said definitly not from neck. He said I am moderate carpal tunnel surgey candidate.

    Then I went on to PT (this is my 3rd or 4th not counting Chiropractors).
    He wants to work on posture for muscle spasms. We shall see.........

    I am going to hand surgeon soon to talk about carpal tunnel. Still in PT for neck and will be getting cervical traction device for home use. I will be getting a 3rd NS opinion as 2nd op was so far apart from 1st.

    I think my best course of action is to get endoscopic carpal tunnel surgery on one hand to ensure that this is the true source of hand numbness. I will continue with 6 wks of PT as I do have bad posture issues to address. If carpal release surgery is successful then my only concern will be neck spasms and if my disc problems warrant surgery.
