Carpal Tunnel Syndrome (Repetitive Strain Injury)


Carpal Tunnel Syndrome (CTS) is a common, painful disorder caused by the compression of a nerve that passes between the bones and ligaments of the wrist. The condition causes numbness, tingling, and/or burning pain in the first three fingers of the hand, and symptoms can be particularly bad at night. CTS is more prevalent among women and occurs frequently between the ages of forty and sixty years. 


Vitamin B6 (pyridoxine) supplementation appears to be quite helpful in many cases. Alternating hot and cold water treatment (contrast hydrotherapy) provides a simple, efficient way to increase circulation to the area and reduce swelling. When the CTS is due to injury or inflammation, bromelain (an enzyme found in pineapple) may be of benefit, and has well-documented effects in virtually all inflammatory conditions, regardless of cause.
