Carpal Tunnel Syndrome is a common condition which causes pain and weakness in the muscles of the hand.

Remedies like Arnica, Causticum, Calcarea phos, Guaiacum, Hypericum, Rhus tox, Ruta graveolens, Viola odorata are some among the many that have specificity for CTS.

Arnica: This remedy has been prepared from the plant commonly called 'leopard's bane'. It is particularly indicated when injury no matter how remotely is the cause of the present complaint./

This remedy can be used for flare-ups of inflammation or new injuries caused by repetitive use of the fingers and wrists. The area feels bruised and sore, and cramping may occur. External application of herbal Arnica lotion or ointment may help to ease the swelling and soreness, while other remedies are used internally.

Calcarea phosphorica: This homeopathic remedy covers a broad spectrum of disorders. It is prepared from the phosphate of lime. When this remedy is indicated, pain is felt in the bones and nerves of the wrists and arms, and stiffness and discomfort may also involve the neck. Cold and drafts often aggravate discomfort. The person may feel irritable and sensitive, or weak from overwork and pain.

Causticum: Causticum is a wonderful remedy. The founder and father of homeopathy Hahnemann himself introduced this therapeutic preparation to our world

Causticum is useful when carpal tunnel syndrome is long-lasting or recurring. The area feels bruised, having drawing or burning pains. Stiffness and a feeling of weakness and contraction may be felt in the muscles of the hand and forearm. The condition is worse from getting cold and improved by warm applications. People who need this remedy often feel best in rainy weather.

Guaiacum: This remedy is indicated in carpal tunnel syndrome when the wrists (especially the left) are stiff with burning pain, and significantly relieved by applying ice or ice-cold water. Because of so much tightness, the person may feel a need to stretch the wrist, despite the pain.

Hypericum: This remedy may be useful if sharp or shooting pains are felt extending from the wrist. Hypericum is known for its soothing effect when body parts containing many nerves are injured, as well as in other traumatic nerve conditions.

Rhus Toxicodendron: This remedy is useful when stiffness and pain are worse on initial motion and improve as the movement continues. Overuse may lead to soreness, pain, and further stiffening. Discomfort is relieved by warmth and worse in cold, damp weather.

Ruta graveolens: This remedy is indicated when overuse of joints and irritation of nerves lead to tremendous stiffness. A feeling of bruising and lameness may be present, even when the wrist is allowed to rest. Weakness in the arms and wrists, especially after repetitive tasks causing wear and tear on the joints and nerves, often indicates Ruta.

Viola odorata: This remedy is useful for many conditions that involve the wrist and hand, especially the right. Pain and numbness may extend from the wrist through the hand and into the fingers, and the hands and arms may tremble. Symptoms are worse from getting cold.
