IF you have ever suffered with this symptom you will know how painful and incapacitating this can be but what you may not know is that osteopathic treatment could help.
Carpal tunnel syndrome causes pain, numbness, tingling and other symptoms in the hands, fingers and arms and during her stay in Spain, Carol felt the same sensations and knew what she was suffering from as her mother had also been diagnosed with carpel tunnel and had an operation. Carol said: “I went to the doctor here in Spain who gave me pain killers and advised that I should seek medical help once back in the UK. It was only by chance that I read the advert for Osteopathic Healthcare and I gave them e a call and asked if they could help.
Visiting the clinic in Pilar de la Horadada, Carol spoke with osteopath Russell Dougall who took a case history and carried out a few checks and confirmed she did have the syndrome and could offer Carol treatment: “He began to treat, firstly with gentle cranial osteopathy to my head, neck and following the nerves down my arm then into my affected hand. He stated I would need three or four sessions and so I commenced treatment. On the second visit he again started on my neck then to the upper part of my arm, where the pain was most acute ending with my hand and thumb. During the third treatment, he concentrated on my forearm and thumb, I then began to experience immense relief. For the first time the pain did not wake me in the night and the following morning my hand and thumb were immeasurably better.” Carol concluded: “Following the final treatment I can honestly say that I am back to normal. I will now not be seeking medical help when I go back to the UK, as I am completely cured. No doubt Russell identified this condition in its early stages, but I am so thankful for his attention and help, which has stopped my suffering.”
