Carpal tunnel syndrome often occurs when the median nerve, which runs from the spine through the arm, becomes pinched. This is due to repetitive wrist motion from activities like typing or lifting objects, in the majority of cases. Carpal tunnel causes several uncomfortable symptoms, most notably including pain or numbness in the hands and arms. This condition can make everyday tasks more difficult, making the proper diagnosis and treatment of the utmost importance. It is for this reason that the providers at Austin Preferred take an integrative approach to carpal tunnel syndrome treatment in Austin. The goal of this approach is to relieve pain while restoring health and function to the body, rather than recommending surgery or prescription drugs.
Because each case is unique, we use several different techniques for our carpal tunnel syndrome treatment in Austin. We feel this allows our providers to create truly personalized plans of care that work efficiently and effectively. Treatment for carpal tunnel pain relief typically includes a combination of the following modalities:
Health insurance and Medicare cover some of the options listed above, while some are only available at the self-pay rate. Moreover, our staff values patient feedback and can adjust treatment plans for those with specific requests. Further, we also offer free consultations for some of the options mentioned above.
