Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
This information is a summary of treatment approaches that were shared with us by experienced clinicians that are using our products successfully in their patients. Obviously, every patient is different and needs an individualized approach, thus the described clinical approaches can only serve orientation purposes.
Approach A (Carpal Tunnel Injection)
Product(s) & Dosage: 2.2 cc Traumeel® Injection Solution
Application: When performing a “real” carpal tunnel injection with Traumeel® IS , the needle is inserted 1 cm proximal to the distal wrist flexion crease, just ulnar to the palmaris longus tendon at a 30 degrees angle directly distally and slightly radially (if the palmaris longus is absent, the needle should be directed in line with the ring finger).
Duration: One session per week over 2 – 3 consecutive weeks
Approach B (Wrist Fold Injections):
Product(s) & Dosage: 2.2 cc Traumeel® Injection Solution for the first three weeks then switch to 2.2 cc Neuralgo-Rheum® Injection Solution for another three weeks.
Application: As a first treatment approach, numerous subcutaneous injections can be given in the wrist fold instead of a real carpal tunnel injection.
Using a 30G x 1/2“ needle inject the following: Week 1-3: Weekly one injection of Traumeel® Injection Solution 2.2 cc injected s.c. in the wrist fold. Week 4-6: Neuralgo-Rheum® Injection Solution 2.2 cc (2 ampules) per week injected s.c. in the wrist fold.
Duration: One weekly injection over 6 weeks. First three weeks utilizing Traumeel® Injection Solution, then Neuralgo-Rheum® Injection Solution
