Carpal Tunnel Syndrome (Cts) Connections

Below you will find various relationships to the concept of and potential clinical approaches for carpal tunnel syndrome (cts). It is critical to appreciate that in Chinese Medicine (and most related systems), treatment for "carpal tunnel syndrome (cts)" is rarely designed with the resulting "carpal tunnel syndrome (cts)" exclusively in mind.

For non-practitioners, we recommend reading treating the "cause" and not the "symptoms" for more on the overall approach and the importance of the TCM diagnostic system in formulating treatment approaches.
