Charles Poliquin had this article the other day and it mentioned A.R.T. used to help carpal tunnel:
A.R.T isn't cheap but I'd rather try a few sessions of that before I let a surgeon go at it.
"And for crying out loud. Don't go into the pain cave. I can't stress this enough. Your Totem Animal won't be in there to help you. You'll be on your own. The Pain Cave is for cowards.
Pain is your companion, don't go hide from it."
