Carpal Tunnel Syndrome Natural Ayurvedic Treatment

Author : Gurnam Saini  

Carpal Tunnel Syndrome Natural Treatment Melbourne Australia

Carpal tunnel syndrome is a condition caused due to the compression of the Median nerve as it passes through the wrist. The irritation of the median nerve results in numbness, pain, moderate to severe tingling sensation and weakness in the fingers and hand. These symptoms develop gradually and tend to get worse at night.


Carpal Tunnel Syndrome natural treatment using ayurvedic herbs and Panchakarma Detox therapy recommended by Ayurveda can help to control these symptoms effectively.


The Median nerve travels down the forearm, passes through the passage in the central part of the wrist called the carpal tunnel and enters the hand. Any condition that results in an increased pressure in the carpal tunnel causes compression of the median nerve. This leads to an irritation of the nerve along its course through the hands and fingers.


The symptoms of carpal tunnel syndrome are typically felt in the thumb, middle fingers, and the index finger. Patients can obtain considerable carpal tunnel relief by using natural herbal remedies.



The risk of carpal tunnel syndrome is linked to the factors such as the occupation of the person, and existing disorders like diabetes, hypothyroidism, arthritis, and chronic alcoholism. The patients with arthritis develop carpal tunnel syndrome due to the inflammation of the tissues in the wrist joint resulting in swelling and compression of the nerve.


Patients, who have had a wrist fracture, are also at a risk of developing this condition. The incidence of this condition is also higher in the pregnant women, though the exact mechanism of its development in them in not fully understood.


The relationship between the people in certain occupations such as those working on computers for long hours and the higher risk of carpal tunnel syndrome is not clear. However, it is believed to occur due to the extreme extension and flexion of the wrist joint. This leads to an increased pressure in the carpal tunnel and compression of the median nerve.


The common symptoms of carpal tunnel syndrome may be seen as follows:


  • Pain, and numbness in the thumb, index, and middle fingers
  • Burning and tingling sensation in these fingers
  • Tingling, and numbness that moves up the arm till the elbow
  • Weakness of the hands
  • Inability to have a strong grip on objects resulting in frequent dropping of objects
  • Difficulty in handling and feeling objects


Patients, who would like to know how to relieve carpal tunnel pain, can use the herbs such as Ashwagandha (winter cherry), Rasna, and Guggulu for effective and long-term results. Some consider that he pain may sometimes be relieved temporarily by "shaking off" the hands.


Pain Relief For Carpal Tunnel with Ayurvedic Herbal Medicine


Though carpal tunnel syndrome rarely causes any serious consequences, it can have a significant impact on the academic and professional spheres of the patient’s life. The severe pain in the fingers can make it difficult for the patients to perform routine activities. An effective pain relief for carpal tunnel may be achieved by using herbal remedies and providing proper rest to the affected part.


Patients are advised to use the herbal remedies for carpal tunnel that can provide long-term results with their natural anti-inflammatory and analgesic properties. The treatment can be combined with an Ayurvedic diet that comprises of the nutrients needed to repair the damaged tissues for better and faster results.


Herbal Remedies For Carpal Tunnel


Ayurveda recommends the use of the herbal remedies for carpal tunnel given below to get rid of the symptoms in a safe and effective manner. These herbs have a high medicinal value and help to reduce the symptoms by removing the root cause of the illness.


Ashwagandha (Indian ginseng): The carpal tunnel syndrome care can be achieved by using Ashwagandha that possesses strong anti-inflammatory and rejuvenative properties. It helps to reduce inflammation and swelling in the carpal tunnel and helps in a faster repair of the damaged tissues. It also helps to improve the functions of the muscles in the hands that may have been affected due to the prolonged compression of the Median nerve.


A research paper (case study) by Ekta Sharma et al, highlights the uses of ashwagandha in different forms for the treatment of Carpel Tunnel Syndrome. Under abhyantar chikitsa ashwagandha churna is given with milk. Ashwagandha churna is also given as balya (balashwagandha taila and ksheerbala taila – for 30 - 40 min) in panchakarma and it has a rejuvenating effect and it also pacifies vata dosha. It improves motor and sensory system resulting in improved function of hand and forearm.


Rasna (Pluchea lanceolata): Rasna acts as a nerve tonic and enhances the functions of the nervous system. It helps to heal and invigorates the nervous system. It repairs the nerves and provides relief from the pain and tingling. Regular use of this remedy can help the patients to regain the strength of the muscles in the hands.


Guggulu (Commiphora mukul): Guggulu is considered as one of the best carpal tunnel syndrome ayurveda remedies that provides relief from the symptoms by correcting the imbalances of the Vata dosha. It also helps to reduce pain and improves the strength of the muscles. 


Nikhil H Joglekar et al conducted a study on the usefulness of ayurvedic methodology in the treatment of carpal tunnel syndrome. Guggul has a very important role to play. Guggul is used in the form of kaishor guggul. In kaishor guggul alongwith guduchi (other contents are triphala, tryushan i.e.trikatu,vidanga,danti, and nishottar). Guggul has yogvaahitwa guna so it enhances the properties of guduchi and the other drugs do the lekhan karma. This action is useful for relieving the pressure over the median nerve created by the flexor retinaculum. Therefore it relieves pain, tingling and pin pricking sensation in patients suffering from carpal tunnel syndrome.


Shallaki (Boswellia serrata): Shallaki helps to treat carpal tunnel syndrome by acting as a natural anti-inflammatory agent. It helps to reduce the compression of the Median nerve by decreasing the swelling caused by inflammation.


In research by Somvanshi Jaydeep Shekhar on the disease carpal syndrome mentions that shallaki if used with ginger has strong anti-inflammatory and pain relieving properties.


Tumeric: Haridra or turmeric too acts as an anti-inflammatory agent and reduces swelling in the carpal tunnel thereby providing relief from the pain and tingling sensation. It also aims to strengthen the muscles in the hands.


Guduchi (Tinospora cordifolia): Guduchi is a natural remedy for carpal tunnel syndrome that helps to treat by vitalizing the affected nerves and correcting the Vata dosha.


Natural Ayurvedic Treatment For Carpal Tunnel

  • I thoroughly recommend Ayurveda Doctor Gurnam Saini! He is fantastic. I was feeling depressed with low moods and low energy, I'd put on weight and was experiencing hair loss. I saw results with my energy and mood after only a few days of treatment and after three months I have been gradually losing weight and my hair is becoming thicker and fuller. His Ayurveda herbs and supplements definitely do the trick, and his dietary recommendations are pretty easy to implement into your lifestyle. If you're feeling like your overall health and well-being could be better I recommend giving this a try.
