It’s All In The Hand

Whether you are cooking, giving a massage, or creating a sculpture, it’s all in the hand.  And that goes for chiropractics as well.hands1

I recently added another member to my health team- a new chiropractor.  Did I switch? No. I have 2 now. Each has their own style and skill sets, and each brings something different to the healing arena for me, and since I do not use a primary care physician, I rely on chiropractors for most things I need outside help with, and when one is not available, the other one probably is. They also can sign official forms such as state disability and excuses from jury duty.

Finding an excellent ‘anything’ is hard today, with the vast level of mediocrity out there, in all areas, so when I find someone who ‘has the hand’, I immediately bring him/her on board.

One of the complaints I brought to my new chiropractor is carpel tunnel. I have it in my right hand, presenting as tingling and itching along my right arm and into the palm of my hand. He did a nice wrist adjustment and was able to bring relief from the itching and tingling, which comes and goes.

homeopathy1Along with chiropractics for carpel tunnel, we have several homeopathic remedies that assist in the healing; the main ones being Ruta, Causticum, Hypericum, and Arnica.

Causticum is a top pick, and always gives me instant, temporary relief. It is more indicated when the carpal tunnel syndrome has increased to level where there is excessive weakness in the hands and the muscles of the hand have atrophied. For Causticum to be given in a case of carpal tunnel syndrome the palmar side of had should have flattish appearance (reduction in musculature of hand). Ruta Graveolens is used when there is tendonitis from overuse of  wrist or after a sudden strain or fracture of the wrist. Arnica and Hypericum are good choices when there is an injury relating to the onset of carpal tunnel syndrome.

You can always dowse for the remedy that will best help your carpel tunnel, and also to confirm your choice of practitioners. Further you can ask your pendulum to balance your hand and wrist, and return it to it’s original condition. Best of luck, and let me know what works for you- your comments are always welcome.
