Does acupuncture cure hand and wrist pain?
Acupuncture provides long-term relief for both acute and chronic hand and wrist pain such as in conditions like carpal tunnel syndrome. It helps relieve hand and wrist pain by reducing inflammation. By stimulating the various acupuncture points associated with hand and wrist pain, parts of the nervous system are also stimulated, which can help provide pain relief. Because of its low-risk, low-side effect nature of treatment, acupuncture is something patients should consider before having more invasive procedures like surgery.
