There is a very good reason why thousands of former sufferers of
Carpal Tunnel Syndrome are calling
K Laser Therapy the “eighth wonder of the world.”
This amazing new medical breakthrough is responsible for cracking the Carpal Tunnel code for thousands of FORMER wrist pain sufferers. Many previously tried everything and were thought to be hopeless cases. So many that were told- “We’ve done all we can do for you, you’re just going to have to live with the pain,” are now pain free.
• Imagine living the rest of your life pain free.
• Imagine waking up tomorrow morning with your pain GONE.
• Imagine how much easier your life would be if you could just be pain free… once and for all.
Here are some more SHOCKING FACTS
About Carpal Tunnel Syndrome:
• The U.S. Department of Labor has concluded that Carpal Tunnel Syndrome was the “chief occupational hazard of the 90’s” -disabling workers in epidemic proportions.
• Carpal Tunnel Syndrome affects over 8 Million Americans annually.
• Carpal Tunnel Syndrome is the #1 reported medical problem, accounting for approximately 50% of ALL work related injuries.
• Up to 36% of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome patients require continual (permanent) medical treatment.
• Surgery for Carpal Tunnel Syndrome is the second most common type of surgery, with well over 230,000 procedures performed EACH YEAR.
So… What IS Carpal Tunnel Syndrome? …
The Carpal Tunnel is a “tunnel” that is formed by the bones in the wrist and an inflexible ligament (the Transverse Carpal Ligament) that lies over the top of the bones. Several important structures lie in this tunnel including the finger tendons (which help you make a fist and move the wrist) and a nerve called the Median Nerve (which goes to the muscles in your arm and hand and gives you feeling in parts of your hand and forearm). Carpal Tunnel Syndrome is when the Median Nerve becomes PINCHED, INFLAMED & SWOLLEN!
What are the symptoms of carpal tunnel syndrome?
Symptoms usually start gradually, with frequent burning, tingling, or itching numbness in the palm of the hand and the fingers, especially the thumb and the index and middle fingers. Some carpal tunnel sufferers say their fingers feel useless and swollen, even though little or no swelling is apparent. The symptoms often first appear in one or both hands during the night, since many people sleep with flexed wrists. A person with carpal tunnel syndrome may wake up feeling the need to “shake out” the hand or wrist. As symptoms worsen, people might feel tingling during the day. Decreased grip strength may make it difficult to form a fist, grasp small objects, or perform other manual tasks. In chronic and/or untreated cases, the muscles at the base of the thumb may waste away. Some people are unable to tell between hot and cold by touch.
What are the causes of carpal tunnel syndrome?
Carpal tunnel syndrome is often the result of a combination of factors that increase pressure on the median nerve and tendons in the carpal tunnel, rather than a problem with the nerve itself. Most likely the disorder is due to a congenital predisposition – the carpal tunnel is simply smaller in some people than in others. Other contributing factors include trauma or injury to the wrist that cause swelling, such as sprain or fracture; overactivity of the pituitary gland; hypothyroidism; rheumatoid arthritis; mechanical problems in the wrist joint; work stress; repeated use of vibrating hand tools; fluid retention during pregnancy or menopause; or the development of a cyst or tumor in the canal. In some cases no cause can be identified.
There is little clinical data to prove whether repetitive and forceful movements of the hand and wrist during work or leisure activities can cause carpal tunnel syndrome. Repeated motions performed in the course of normal work or other daily activities can result in repetitive motion disorders such as bursitis and tendonitis. Writer’s cramp – a condition in which a lack of fine motor skill coordination and ache and pressure in the fingers, wrist, or forearm is brought on by repetitive activity – is not a symptom of carpal tunnel syndrome.
Who is at risk of developing carpal tunnel syndrome?
Women are three times more likely than men to develop carpal tunnel syndrome, perhaps because the carpal tunnel itself may be smaller in women than in men. The dominant hand is usually affected first and produces the most severe pain. Persons with diabetes or other metabolic disorders that directly affect the body’s nerves and make them more susceptible to compression are also at high risk. Carpal tunnel syndrome usually occurs only in adults.
The risk of developing carpal tunnel syndrome is not confined to people in a single industry or job, but is especially common in those performing assembly line work – manufacturing, sewing, finishing, cleaning, and meat, poultry, or fish packing. In fact, carpal tunnel syndrome is three times more common among assemblers than among data-entry personnel. A 2001 study by the Mayo Clinic found heavy computer use (up to 7 hours a day) did not increase a person’s risk of developing carpal tunnel syndrome.
During 1998, an estimated three of every 10,000 workers lost time from work because of carpal tunnel syndrome. Half of these workers missed more than 10 days of work. The average lifetime cost of carpal tunnel syndrome, including medical bills and lost time from work, is estimated to be about $30,000 for each injured worker.
How is carpal tunnel syndrome diagnosed?
Early diagnosis and treatment are important to avoid permanent damage to the median nerve. A physical examination of the hands, arms, shoulders, and neck can help determine if the patient’s complaints are related to daily activities or to an underlying disorder, and can rule out other painful conditions that mimic carpal tunnel syndrome. The wrist is examined for tenderness, swelling, warmth, and discoloration. Each finger should be tested for sensation, and the muscles at the base of the hand should be examined for strength and signs of atrophy. Routine laboratory tests and X-rays can reveal diabetes, arthritis, and fractures.
Physicians can use specific tests to try to produce the symptoms of carpal tunnel syndrome. In the Tinel test, the doctor taps on or presses on the median nerve in the patient’s wrist. The test is positive when tingling in the fingers or a resultant shock-like sensation occurs. The Phalen, or wrist-flexion, test involves having the patient hold his or her forearms upright by pointing the fingers down and pressing the backs of the hands together. The presence of carpal tunnel syndrome is suggested if one or more symptoms, such as tingling or increasing numbness, is felt in the fingers within 1 minute. Doctors may also ask patients to try to make a movement that brings on symptoms.
Often it is necessary to confirm the diagnosis by use of electrodiagnostic tests. In a nerve conduction study, electrodes are placed on the hand and wrist. Small electric shocks are applied and the speed with which nerves transmit impulses is measured. In electromyography, a fine needle is inserted into a muscle; electrical activity viewed on a screen can determine the severity of damage to the median nerve. Ultrasound imaging can show impaired movement of the median nerve. Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) can show the anatomy of the wrist but to date has not been especially useful in diagnosing carpal tunnel syndrome.
What is our treatment For Carpal Tunnel Syndrome?
K Laser Therapy- Class IV Laser Therapy is a non-surgical, drugless & painless deep treatment that is Cleared by the FDA and has shown phenomenal results with even the MOST ADVANCED cases of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, even AFTER surgery! K-Laser actually HEALS the Median Nerve itself! Cold Laser Therapy actually addresses the underlying problem in the wrist—the inflammation of the median nerve, which is caused by compression of the nerve by the ligament and the wrist bones!
SO… WHAT EXACTLY IS K LASER THERAPY?
Light comes in a variety of forms. The light that we see is the visible part of the spectrum of electromagnetic radiation. The light that is visible to us is a specific range of colors in that spectrum… but not the whole spectrum. Other parts of the spectrum are not visible. Such as the ultra-violet light (on the Left, or “hot” side, of the spectrum) that tans (or burns) your skin. Laser light is compressed light of a wavelength from the cold, red part of the spectrum (on the right of the spectrum picture above). The K-Laser is very different from natural light. It penetrates deep into the painful area and eliminates the pain; many times instant relief is felt. In the recent past, since 1967, more than 2,000 clinical studies have been published worldwide on Lasers. Many of the studies are positive… but… many were small and not designed well enough to stand up to the scientific standards we have today.
Recently, however, ALL that has changed. One of the most difficult things I know is getting a patent and market Approval / Clearance from theFDA for anything related to health care. Well, in February 2002 the first patent and market FDA Clearance was given to Cold Laser for the non-surgical treatment of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome. The patent and market Clearance were granted after Cold Laser manufacturers conducted double-blind studies with General Motors and Baylor College of Medicine as part of their trials. One of the numerous positive results was an amazing over 70% (some studies show 75.6%) of patients with Carpal Tunnel Syndrome showed marked improvement. And listen to THIS: The study showed the Cold Laser even worked on patients that already had surgery! These days many modern medical treatments make the conditions they are intended to “cure” actually WORSE! One of the most important benefits about the Laser is…

K Laser Therapy: What does it do?
Laser Therapy is an application of red and near infrared light over an injured area to improve soft tissue healing and relieve both chronic and acute pain. Laser light energy directs light energy to the body’s cells without injuring them. Laser light dramatically boosts the body’s natural healing response. Since near infrared light waves penetrate the deepest of all the visible light waves…
Laser Therapy optimizes the positive healing effects in the body. Such as:
• Relieves acute and chronic pain
• Increases the speed, quality and tensile strength of tissue repair
• Increases blood supply
• Stimulates the nerve function and the immune system
• Reduces inflammation (swelling)
• Develops collagen and muscle tissue, promotes faster wound healing
• Helps generate new and healthy cells and tissue
What are Others Saying About Their Wrist Pain?
“I was in pain. There was a chronic problem with my wrists and being a young dad with 2 kids plus I like to fish and play golf I was very concerned for my well being. Dr D worked with me very conscious of my concerns and with in 4 weeks I was feeling much better. (The pain is basically gone and I am feeling very good strength in my hands because of it.)
Over the years I have gone to various chiropractors and massage therapists and Dr D is by far the most in touch with the overall well being of his patients. Sometimes I feel he is on a different level – A healing being – can feel the pain in his patients and take action to not only relieve it but cure it. It has been a true pleasure being under his care and direction.“
