After sitting at your desk like you always do, you’re suddenly feeling a pinching pain and weakness in your hand and wrist radiating up the arm. It probably feels a little numb… and it’s probably Carpal Tunnel.
Most figure that surgery is their only option when this occurs, however Functional Neurology can prevent the condition from worsening and can possibly reverse the pain through specific therapies.
Our clinical success comes from first determining exactly where the nerve is being pinched. As Carpal Tunnel Syndrome is often accompanied by a “double crush syndrome” (a damaged or pinched nerve along its path from the cerebellum, the brain’s parietal lobe neck, shoulder, and forearm into the wrist), Functional Neurologists look at all aspects of the cause as once the nerve is damaged at the wrist, it becomes more susceptible to injury elsewhere.
By incorporating a unique series of therapies and methods, we can quickly address your condition and return you to normal daily activities. Treatments might include spinal decompression, computer wrist traction, oxygen therapy, shoulder, elbow and/or wrist adjustments, infrared therapy, massage, and nutritional support.
Don’t wait for your Carpal Tunnel pain to get worse – the time to act is now!
The next time you find yourself thinking hard about a problem in your life, try to think out loud to yourself instead of just keeping it in your mind.
When you say something out loud, it can sound very different than when you’re just playing with thoughts inside your head.
When you keep your thoughts inside, they can quickly become muddled, blurry, and disorganized. We often jump from one thought to the next, with very little connection between them.
However, when you think out loud to yourself, it forces you to be more logical and reasonable with your thoughts.
Just like when you have a conversation with someone, when you talk to yourself you have to draw a line from one thought to another in a coherent way. They can’t just be random – you have to explain yourself each step of the way.
A recent study found that talking to yourself out loud can have cognitive benefits and improve your performance on difficult tasks. This also explains why many people may naturally talk to themselves when they are trying to figure out something they are having trouble with.
Another related study found that speaking out loud can improve learning and memory. This fits with something known as the production effect, which says we often learn better when we generate something based on what we’re learning, rather than just absorbing it passively.
In general, whenever we think out loud we keep our minds more focused and active on whatever is we are doing.
We are motivated to educate as many people as possible which is why we host many events at our office. From in-person educational experiences to virtual webinars and even parties to celebrate our patients, we encourage everyone to get involved with all of our offerings.
