Carpal Tunnel

Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

Carpal tunnel syndrome is a hand and arm condition that causes numbness, tingling and other symptoms. Carpal tunnel syndrome is caused by a pinched nerve in your wrist. A number of factors can contribute to carpal tunnel syndrome, including anatomy of your wrist, underlying health problems and possibly patterns of hand use. Fortunately with proper & specialized treatment, most people who develop CTS can relieve symptoms and restore wrist and hand function.

If left untreated:

  • Loss of fine motor dexterity
  • Hand weakness
  • Constant pain or paresthesias
  • Dependence with activities with daily living (ADLs)

Treatment

Depending on how severe the symptoms are, we can fabricate custom orthotics to relieve compression of the median nerve. We can also provide exercises to help the tendons glide through the carpal tunnel which facilitate nutrition and oxygen to the affected area.

Benefits of Treatment:

  1. Improved fine motor dexterity
  2. Stronger hand
  3. Reduced numbness, tingling, and pain
