Acupuncture Effectively Treats Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

A study comparing the effects of acupuncture on Carpal Tunnel Syndrome (CTS) against the effects of steroids used to treat the same condition found that both had significant beneficial results. There were few ways in which the two differed except that the acupuncture group reported less nocturnal awakening than the steroid group and the acupuncture group reported a significant decrease in distal motor latency (the time between nerve stimulation and reaction). The study concluded that acupuncture was just as effective as prescribed steroid use and in some ways had less adverse effects on the patients. With
