The source of carpal tunnel syndrome is a median nerve compression that may create pain, swelling, numbness, or pins and needles sensation in your wrist. If untreated, nerve damage may become irreversible and require surgery.
However, in a number of cases even after the surgery people may still experience wrist symptoms. Why would that happen? Well, the median nerve originates in the neck and even though a person feels the pain in the wrist, the nerve may be compressed at any point along the nerve path: the neck, the shoulder, the elbow and the forearm. Sometimes the nerve compression occurs in more than one area. Our physical therapists will be able to determine the exact location(s) of your nerve compression and will treat you to free up the nerve in its entirety.
Many of us try to get rid of the pain by taking pain killers and steroid injections. There are few problems with that approach, though: medications have side effects, plus they are only masking the pain without addressing the root of your problem. In addition, steroids may weaken the muscle tendons and ligaments which then become more susceptible to a future trauma. Carpal tunnel physical therapy is a great drug-free treatment approach that could be the real and lasting answer to your condition.
Your carpal tunnel physical therapy will include a variety of manual hands-on techniques, taping methods and other innovative treatment approaches combined with a comprehensive exercise program custom-tailored to your needs. Exercises may include dynamic upper body stabilization, wrist, arm, and hand strengthening, body mechanic correction and more. Specific functional training will be a vital part of your treatment to accelerate return to your favorite leisure and sports activities.
If you suffer from carpal tunnel pain longer than a few weeks, don’t wait… take action!
