Carpal Tunnel Syndrome and SoftWave Therapy: A Revolutionary Non-Surgical Approach in Rochester, NY

Published December 1st, 2023 by

Carpal Tunnel Syndrome (CTS) is a common condition that affects millions of people, causing pain, numbness, and tingling in the hand and arm. Traditionally, treatments have included wrist splints, medications, or even surgery. But now, in Rochester, NY, there's a cutting-edge non-surgical alternative: SoftWave Therapy at Camarata Chiropractic & Wellness, led by Dr. Sam Camarata.

Understanding Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

CTS occurs when the median nerve, which runs from the forearm into the hand, becomes compressed at the wrist within the carpal tunnel. This narrow passage is made up of bones and ligaments, and when it narrows or the tissues within it become inflamed, it can put pressure on the median nerve.

Common causes and risk factors for CTS include:

Repetitive Hand Use: Activities or professions that involve repetitive hand and wrist movements can contribute to CTS.

Anatomic Factors: Some individuals have a narrower carpal tunnel by nature, which may increase the risk.

Health Conditions: Conditions like diabetes, obesity, and rheumatoid arthritis can increase the likelihood of developing CTS.

Symptoms of CTS can range from mild to severe and may include:

Numbness or Tingling: Often in the thumb, index, middle fingers.

Weakness: Difficulty gripping objects or performing fine motor tasks.

Pain: Radiating pain that travels up the arm.

Traditional Treatments vs. SoftWave Therapy

Traditional treatments for CTS often start conservatively with wrist splints, pain medications, and lifestyle modifications. If symptoms persist, corticosteroid injections or surgery may be recommended.

SoftWave Therapy provides a non-surgical, non-invasive, and drug-free alternative for CTS treatment. Here's how it works:

Pain Relief: 

SoftWave Therapy targets and reduces inflammation, providing relief from pain and discomfort.

Tissue Repair: 

The therapy stimulates the body's natural healing processes, promoting tissue repair and regeneration.

Improved Blood Flow: 

Through angiogenesis, SoftWave Therapy enhances blood flow and circulation, helping to flush out inflammation and swelling.

Scar Tissue Breakdown: 

SoftWave Therapy can break down scar tissue that may be contributing to nerve compression.

Stem Cell Activation:

It activates stem cells, encouraging them to migrate to the affected area and participate in the repair process.

Dr. Sam Camarata, the pioneer of SoftWave Therapy in Rochester, NY, has helped numerous patients find relief from CTS symptoms without surgery or medications. SoftWave Therapy is a game-changer for those seeking a non-invasive and effective solution to this common condition.
