Albuquerque, NM (Pitch Engine) February 13, 2012 Desert Health Acupuncture, an Albuquerque based acupuncture and herbal health clinic, is now offering acupuncture treatment in Albuquerque to people suffering from carpal tunnel syndrome.
Carpal tunnel syndrome gets its name from the tunnel that goes through the carpal bones located in the heel of the human hand. The pain location is in the area where the wrist meets the hand. When the size of the tunnel has narrowed pressure is placed on the median nerve located in that area. When this pressure occurs pain and numbness characteristic of carpal tunnel syndrome is quite often the result.
The median nerve is located underneath the tendons that run through your arm that connect to your wrist. When this nerve is pinched it causes pain. Most often carpal tunnel syndrome is known as a work related physical problem but the fact is that more than half of people complaining about this issue cannot connect to work related movement. Women are more likely to have carpal tunnel syndrome than men. The pain from carpal tunnel can be extreme. The pain mostly occurs in the forearm, palm or wrist.
