Vitamin B6, Pyridoxine for Trigger Finger and Carpal Tunnel

by Jeffrey Dach, MD

"Jim is a 46 year old retired New York policeman who uses power tools to repair his house. His problem is chronic pain at the base of the thumb and wrist. The pain worsens with use of the hand, making it difficult to use the power tools. Other repetitive motions cause pain such as turning a key in a lock, unscrewing the lid of a jar, and opening the car door. Jim also has "trigger finger" involving the thumb joint, and at night, before sleep he notices tingling and numbness in the hands."

...."Examine the backs of your hands. Have you ever noticed the backs of your hands are puffy and swollen, making the tendons obscured? Are your hands so swollen that you cant touch your palms with the tips of your fingers? That’s the positive “Ellis sign,” indicating extra B6 could be helpful. Usual dosage is 20 milligrams three times daily of the activated P-5-P form of B6."

Gary comments:
When magnesium deficiency exists, excessive quantities of calcium can build up in soft tissues such as tendons and ligaments. Painful bursitis is caused by the same mechanism. I believe this process is also the main driver behind Carpal Tunnel Syndrome.

These conditions usually respond well to magnesium supplementation. Vitamin B6 works with magnesium to prevent these accretions of calcium.

This explains why B6 works for cases of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome. And why it works even better when combined with magnesium.

This nutrition therapy works even better when it is combined with weekly deep tissue massaging of the affected areas.
