Carpal Tunnel Treatment Options
If you have developed carpal tunnel syndrome due to repeated hand movements resulting from your duties at work, you may be facing costly medical bills and lost wages. The treatments for carpal tunnel syndrome can be very expensive and may include:
- Medication—in certain instances, drugs can ease the swelling and pain that comes from carpal tunnel syndrome
- Physical therapy—by doing certain exercises, you may be able to control your symptoms
- Alternative therapy methods—therapy methods such as acupuncture and chiropractic may be able to help ease your symptoms
- Endoscopic surgery
- Open release surgery
All of these treatment methods can be costly, especially if you do not have medical insurance. If you have developed carpal tunnel syndrome at work, you should consider filing a workers’ compensation claim to receive financial benefits.
