A Natural Solution for Carpal Tunnel

Bill Fautsch used to suffer from Carpal Tunnel Pain

"The student clinicians were so professional and had a great bedside manner. I couldn't wait to go back."

Golf is my passion. When I developed carpal tunnel in my left hand and couldn't golf, I visited my primary care physician for treatment options. He referred me to a hand specialist whose first and only recommendation was surgery. This was more than arthroscopic surgery, they wanted to open up my hand. I am prone to blood clots and take blood thinners so surgery seemed like a big leap and a potentially dangerous one at that.

I had seen ads for less-invasive procedures so I started looking for alternatives. The trouble was, I couldn't get in to see anyone and I was really frustrated. A friend of a friend mentioned Dr. Nick Buratovich at the SCNM Medical Center. I called and could get an appointment within a few weeks.

I saw Dr. Nick on one of his student rotations. The students were so professional, I often forgot they will still students, and Dr. Nick was so accommodating. We discussed several options and on my first visit, I received acupuncture, cold-laser and physical manipulation treatments. I was golfing within days.

After five appointments, I'm done with my treatments. My hand has improved so much that my left hand grip strength now exceeds my right hand's.

I loved my experience at the SCNM Medical Center. Most doctors want to get you in and out quickly on office visits. At SCNM, my first visit was three hours and I couldn't wait to go back. I never felt like making money was the priority at SCNM, making me better was.

I don't know if I would have chosen naturopathic medicine if my girlfriend hadn't persuaded me. I went with an open mind but was still skeptical. Now, I will look for a naturopathic approach for any kind of illness, ache or pain, before seeing a conventional doctor.
