What is Carpal Tunnel Syndrome?
Most cases of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome can now be effectively treated without Surgery thanks to Advances in Treatment Technology
Carpal Tunnel Syndrome (CTS) is a condition in which the median nerve in the hand is compressed as it passes through a tunnel in the wrist. Compression of this nerve results in symptoms such as pain, burning, numbness, tingling and weakness of pinch and grip. Patients suffering with Carpal Tunnel Syndrome often wake at night with symptoms listed above and find that shaking and rubbing the hands often provides relief. CTS can be aggravated by strenuous, repetitive movements of the wrist or by holding the wrist bent up or down for prolonged periods of time.
The vast majority of patients suffering with Carpal Tunnel Syndrome have jobs or hobbies that involve repetitive wrist and/or hand movements. This gradually leads to increasing symptoms and chronic irritation. Carpal Tunnel Syndrome commonly affects both hands and 20% of pregnant women can experience CTS due to water retention.

Niagara Neuropathy & Carpal Tunnel Relief Clinic’s Unique Approach
We believe that surgery should never be the first treatment option for Carpal Tunnel Syndrome. We have found that 80-85% of patients accepted for treatment in our clinic who are suffering with CTS quickly respond to our unique integrative approach and never require surgery.
Medications or cortisone injections offer no long-term value in CTS treatment. We also find that singular treatment approaches such as bracing or exercises alone are rarely successful in resolving symptoms and preventing surgery. For this reason our clinic combines the best available treatment options including pneumatic decompression, pulsed resonance therapy and a host of other cutting edge, non-surgical approaches.
Thorough Assessment & Evaluation
Prior to being accepted for treatment, our doctors perform a thorough consultation and comprehensive CTS evaluation to determine the underlying cause of the symptoms. The elbow, shoulder region and neck are also examined for possible nerve root compression of the median nerve at these levels. Additional testing is done to rule out other conditions that might mimic CTS. If the doctor determines the patient is a candidate for treatment, the patient is then accepted for care.
Early Diagnosis and Treatment is Critical
Carpal Tunnel Syndrome is a progressive condition but with the aid of the new treatment technologies and therapies offered at Niagara Neuropathy & Carpal Tunnel Relief Clinic, patients are discovering that CTS can be effectively treated and managed without the use of surgery, injections or drugs. As with most medical conditions, the earlier CTS is identified and treated, the more likely it will respond to treatment.
