I have had Carpal Tunnel Syndrome for approximately three years. My hands were getting weaker and woke me up at night as they would go numb. So I have had to wear wrist braces every night. I thought surgery was my only option until I heard about LASER therapy. After LASER treatments my hand has improved and there is less numbness during the night. I am going to continue with a monthly treatment for further improvement. I would recommend trying LASER therapy before considering surgery.
