The hardest decision that anyone makes is to get our health concerns checked out.  A lot of us are afraid to go to a health practitioner because of what we may find out.  Men are especially notorious for this! If we go to a health practitioner he/she may tell us we have a serious issue, or we need to change our lifestyle or that we may need to take pills for a long time.  This fear of bad news or that we have to change our lifestyle stops us from getting care.  Once you can move past this fear you need to decide to get your health under control, but who should you go and see?

What Are You Willing to Do?

The second hardest decision a person can make is what you should do about my medical condition or symptoms.  Do I see an orthopedic medical doctor?  Do I see a massage therapist?  Or a Chiropractic Doctor?  This is difficult on patients because you don’t want to be referred from one practitioner to another.  The first step to answering this question is to ask yourself what are you willing to do.

Do you want to take a natural approach to care or surgery/medicine?  Are you willing to work on the problem or do you want someone else to fix you?  Are you determined to work on this problem as best as you can or are you only motivated because of the pain?  All of these questions will answer what health practitioner you should see.  Surgery and medicine are quick fixes.  Quick fixes can set you up for quick failures!  Carpal Tunnel Syndrome is a condition you need to work on longer term.
