CBD For Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
Can CBD help treat carpal tunnel syndrome? People have been using CBD for multiple of reasons such as to relieve pain and inflammation, to improve sleep, to treat insomnia, to reduce stress and anxiety, but today we will focus on whether CBD can help with Carpal Tunnel Syndrome (CTS) or not.
The Mayo Clinic explains carpal tunnel syndrome as: Carpal tunnel syndrome is caused by pressure on the median nerve. The carpal tunnel is a narrow passageway surrounded by bones and ligaments on the palm side of the hand. When the median nerve is compressed, symptoms can include numbness, tingling, and weakness in the hand and arm.
Common causes of carpal tunnel syndrome:
● Overuse of the wrist
● Trauma of the wrist
● Fluid retention
Research on health benefits of CBD is still going on, but what is already clear is the future of CBD is very bright. There are evidence CBD can help with chronic pain and neuropathy which has a positive impact on carpal tunnel syndrome.
Apart from the numerous health benefits that CBD poses it also has these effects on human body:
● Anti-inflammatory (reduces swelling and inflammation)
● Anti-spasamodic (suppresess muscle spasm)
● Anti-convulsive (surpresses seizure)
Carpal Tunnel Syndrome is type of neuropathy that cause you to be in a lot of pain. When diagnosed with carpal tunnel syndrome it means that there is a problem with the median nerve which is found in your wrist joints.
CTS starts from repeated stressing of your fingers and hands. People that use their hands alot for work like musicians, hairdresser, bakers or office workers are bound to be affected by this.
Everytime you stress your hands it will cause it to be inflamed and swelling. Inflammation of the hands will push against the median nerves in your wrist resulting in carpal tunnel syndrome.
People with carpel tunnel will experience pain, numbness and tingling sensation. Your hands have a lot of pain receptors and a lot of them are cannabinoid receptors. Luckily CBD interacts with cannabinoid receptors all over your body and CBD could help in reducing pain and inflammation. More researcher are needed to fully understand how big of a role CBD has on CTS. Before CBD can be accredited for having an impact on neuropathy we must be able to understand:
● What kind of pain CBD can target.
● How good is the absorption rate through the skin?
● How deep through the skin can CBD reach?
● How will each individual react to CBD?
Here are some suggestions on how you can use CBD to help treat CTS:
1. Use CBD tincture for fast pain and inflammation relief.
2. Apply CBD topical, balm or cream directly on your wrist for pain relief.
3. Trying CBD products in other forms like vaping, edibles or capsules to help relief pain
