Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

Carpal Tunnel Syndrome look no further!

Carpal Tunnel Syndrome is described as a numbness and tingling in the hand and arm caused by a pinched nerve in the wrist.

Underlying health conditions and patterns of hand use can contribute to carpal tunnel syndrome, such as overusing the wrist without proper strength exercises.

Carpal Tunnel is very common in musicians and tradies and anyone who uses their hands a lot!

Key symptoms are pain in the hand and arm with numbness or tingling.

Treatment may include rest, ice, wrist splints, cortisone injections and surgery.

Myotherapists can certainly help you with your carpal tunnel syndrome. If you are suffering from discomfort then the issue should not be ignored and that MyoActive will be able to provide a resolution to your problem.

Causes of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome:

Necessary lifestyle changes will enable your treatment and healing to be more effective, failure to keep up the exercises can cause Carpal Tunnel to flare up and cause on going pain.

Myotherapy is the most popular treatment style with patients due to being non-evasive, drug free and don’t involve surgery. Some cases of carpal tunnel may be treated with cortisone injections or even surgery, as Myotherapists it is highly recommended that these less invasive treatment options be explored first and surgery must be a last resort.
