A pain-free body is a rare thing these days, it’s hard to find someone who is not suffering from some sort of pain or discomfort for one reason or another. Whether it is the back pain, neck pain, migraine, arthritis, toothache, frozen shoulder, tendinitis, stomach ache, sciatica or carpal tunnel, all aches and pains have one thing in common: the patient wants a quick relief. Remedial massage for carpal tunnel can offer quick pain relief to people suffering from carpal tunnel or any of the above mentioned painful conditions.
What Actually Is Carpal Tunnel | Remedial Massage For Carpal Tunnel
The carpal tunnel is a passageway or an arch in the wrist through which the flexor muscles, nerves, arteries and veins pass into the hands. Carpal Tunnel Syndrome is the most common focal peripheral neuropathy resulting from the compression of the median nerve which passes through the wrist. In plain and simple words, it is a condition in which the nerves and blood vessels that travel through the carpal tunnel of the wrist get compressed as a result of inflammation or an injury resulting in pain, tingling, numbness or a sensation of coldness.
Treatment Options For Carpel Tunnel Syndrome (CTS) | Remedial Massage For Carpal Tunnel
Some carpal tunnel syndrome symptoms may go away on their own after a few days; however, if the underlying symptoms persist for a longer duration and increase in intensity, doctors may recommend the use of anti-inflammatory or steroidal medications and splinting the wrist to limit movement. For patients with chronic CTS, doctors may even recommend surgery, which is best to keep as your last resort.
An alternative and drug-free approach which is usually overlooked is the use of remedial massage for carpal tunnel. Remedial massage therapists use a number of specialised massage techniques such as deep tissue massage, trigger point therapy, kneading and squeezing of the affected muscles to break down scar tissues and adhesions in the muscles of the wrist and forearm. This helps restore the affected muscles to full elasticity allowing the wrist to move freely.
