If you have been diagnosed with carpal tunnel syndrome you should know that acupuncture is an excellent way to reduce the swelling, pain and inflammation in your wrists.  Acupuncture is extremely effective, and is a great alternative if you are hesitant to take steroids or have surgery.  In fact, recent studies suggest that acupuncture may be more effective than taking corticosteroids when it comes to carpal tunnel syndrome.  So, if you are suffering from carpal tunnel syndrome or if you know of someone who suffers from this, please consider trying acupuncture.  Acupuncture is safe, drug-free, and has little to no side effects.  Relief may only be a few treatments away!
