New Methods Tested for Providing Relief from Carpal Tunnel Pain

Carpal Tunnel Pain Relief with MBST

For some patients, Carpal Tunnel Syndrome (CTS) can become a life-altering condition, leading to severe chronic pain. This can make it almost impossible to carry out daily tasks, significantly impacting quality of life.

Thankfully, groundbreaking research is currently underway, exploring new methods to help alleviate Carpal Tunnel pain. Here we explore what Carpal Tunnel Syndrome is, the new treatments being investigated, and current treatment options available.

What is Carpal Tunnel Syndrome?

Carpal Tunnel Syndrome occurs when the median nerve, which runs from the forearm into the palm, is pressed or squeezed at the wrist. This nerve controls sensations to the palm side of the thumb and fingers, excluding the little finger. It also sends impulses to some of the small muscles in the hand that allow the fingers and thumb to move.

Symptoms can include numbness, tingling, and pain in the arm, hand, and fingers. Chronic pain from CTS can significantly impact a person’s quality of life, making everyday tasks difficult and uncomfortable. It can also spread away from the hands and wrist, with many patients experiencing centralised pain in the brain.

What new methods are being tested to treat Carpal Tunnel pain?

Innovative research funded by the Helping to End Addiction Long-term® Initiative is exploring new ways to alleviate chronic pain caused by conditions like Carpal Tunnel Syndrome. One method being investigated is Electrosonic Stimulation (ESStim™). This is a non-surgical approach that combines electrical and ultrasound energy to target brain areas processing pain. The neuromodulation technique aims to modulate nerve activity and reduce pain signals.

This area of study followed 20 participants with carpal tunnel pain. Half received the ESStim™ treatment, while the other half received a placebo treatment. The results were promising, with those who received the actual treatment reporting a significant reduction in pain and improved hand functionality. The next phase of this research will investigate if combining physical therapy with ESStim™ can provide even greater relief. Other methods being tested include spinal cord stimulation and deep brain stimulation.

MBST for relieving Carpal Tunnel pain

While traditional treatments for carpal tunnel pain, such as opioids, have shown limited effectiveness, they come with potentially dangerous side effects. MBST is a safer and more effective alternative.

MBST is a non-invasive treatment that uses magnetic fields to stimulate cellular repair and regeneration in the affected area. This therapy can relieve pain, reduce inflammation, and improve mobility in the wrist and hand.

The treatment targets the root cause of the pain, rather than just masking symptoms. It’s particularly beneficial for those looking for a solution without the risks associated with surgery or long-term medication use.
