Treatment pain, numbness and tingling in my arms & hands

Posted on April 30, 2009 by Doctor

For the last six months, I have been fighting constant pain, numbness and tingling in my arms & hands.  Upon seeking traditional medical attention, I was given the diagnosis of Thoracic Outlet Syndrome with possible Carpal Tunnel. Two doctors and three physical therapists worked with me for several months without improvement.  One therapist told  me I would probably have to live with this condition for the rest of my life.  My husband then asked me if I would seek help from a Chiropractor.  To humor him, I made an appointment with Dr. Greg Olsen.  Upon my first visit, I was rather skeptical that I could be helped.  The more Dr. Olsen explained what was going on in my body, the more trust and faith I had that perhaps he could help me.  With my initial treatments, I explained a few other problems I was currently having with midlife.  Upon starting a supplement program, I am free of hot flashes, extreme mood swings, spotting, complexion problems,etc..  Dr. Olsen then explained that a “Sugar Regulating ” diet might be helpful. My stomach problems(which I hadn’t even discussed with Dr. Olsen) and the stress seemed to disappear. I wake up everyday with energy and a sense of well being, which somewhere in the last few years I had lost.  As I continue to get more relief from the symptoms that first brought me to Dr. Olsen, I realize that my happiness and patience have changed dramatically(I am the mother of three teenagers)! I do thank Dr. Olsen for his kindness, his gentle sense of humor, and above all, his extreme patience with me during my treatment!   Susan Kane
