What Is The Carpal Tunnel
The carpal tunnel is a path through the wrist that holds vital structures such as the median nerve, arteries, veins and tendons. Carpal tunnel syndrome is a condition in the wrist and hand which is caused by an impingement of your median nerve as it passes through the wrist. Some of the symptoms associated with carpal tunnel syndrome include numbness, pins and needles, and severe pain. Carpal tunnel syndrome can be caused by any actions that cause inflammation and swelling in the wrist, including repetitive movements and arthritis. We offer remedial massage for carpal tunnel syndrome treatment to alleviate the symptoms.
Carpal Tunnel Syndrome Treatment
In order for treatment to work effectively you will also need to rest from aggravating factors. Understanding the things that will help and aggravate the symptoms is crucial, the things you can do at home are just as important as remedial massage and other techniques we can provide in the clinic. Remedial massage is really helpful for most carpal tunnel sufferers especially in the early stages of the syndrome. We use remedial massage techniques to release the muscles in the forearm and hand, as such reducing pressure on the tendons that run through the carpal tunnel.
If it has been caused by work, we can offer an ergonomic assessment of your desk or work station and address your work habits to recommend better ways to use your body and reduce the likelihood of the symptoms recurring. Mild to moderate sufferers of carpal tunnel syndrome have a great chance of full recovery with treatment. Most sufferers see results from treatment within the first three months.
