K. I went and spoke with a acupuncture Dr. and they told me since my doctor indicated surgery, that acupuncture would probably just do more damage than good. she told me that surgery was probably the only way to fix your problem, if there is already nerve damage. and then she referred me to a doctor, and also said that cosmetic surgeons do better job at carpal tunnel surgery than regular hand surgeons.
I'm going to try the device below, i'd rather spend that money to see if it works before having surgery.
seems like acupuncture could of really help me, a few years back i guess.
