Carpal Tunnel Syndrome is a condition that causes tingling, numbness, and weakness in the hand and wrist. It occurs when pressure is placed on the median nerve—a nerve that runs along the length of your arm, runs through a passage in the wrist called the carpal tunnel, and ends in your hand.

Carpal Tunnel Syndrome Symptoms and Complications

Common symptoms of the syndrome include:

Regenerative Medicine Treatments for Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

The effects of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome can be frustrating, and if left untreated, can worsen and lead to nerve damage. Common treatments can range from wearing a splint to limiting the range of mobility, steroid injections, and even surgery in the most severe cases. However, splints and cortisone injections often only treat the symptoms of the condition and are temporary, while surgery of the wrist can be risky and involve a lengthy and painful recovery. Thankfully, our experienced staff at USA Medical Research Institute offers drug-free and minimally invasive alternatives that address the root of your Carpal Tunnel Syndrome.

Regenerative Medicine for Carpal Tunnel Austin, TXPlatelet-rich Plasma Therapy

In this procedure, we draw a small amount of your blood and isolate the platelet-rich plasma using a centrifuge. This substance is rich in platelets, proteins, and growth factors and is essential in the healing process. Therefore, when injected into the ailing wrist or wrists, it deploys these factors and recruits additional cells to speed up the healing process. As a result, it can reduce the pain and inflammation associated with Carpal Tunnel, improve hand and wrist function, and significantly decrease the need for surgery.

Regenerative Tissue Therapy

Regenerative tissue therapy makes use of Wharton’s Jelly-derived regenerative tissue safely obtained from umbilical cords in planned cesarean births. This tissue is naturally rich in healing properties such as peptides, growth factors, proteins, and hyaluronic acid. Therefore, when this young, viable tissue is directly injected into the wrist, it stimulates the body’s natural healing response. Similar to PRP, this results in a reduction in inflammation and pain with a simple procedure, minimal downtime, and little to no side effects.
