Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

What is Carpal Tunnel Syndrome?

Carpal tunnel syndrome is a condition of the wrist that is generally caused by overuse and repetitive strain injuries. This causes the narrowing and inflammation in the carpal tunnel — a narrow tunnel of bone and cartilage in the wrist that houses nerves, tendons and blood vessels leading to and from the forearm and hand — causing nerve pain and pressure up the arm. Tingling the fingertips and poor circulation are very typical symptoms of carpal tunnel syndrome.

Effective Treatments for Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

At Shepherd Health, we use a number of different treatment modalities to effectively treat this uncomfortable, and often debilitating condition. Active release and massage therapy is used to treat the tissues and tendons that cause CTS. Cold laser therapy treats wrist pain on a cellular level by promoting cells to produce more energy, in turn promoting healing. As light energy is transformed into biochemical energy in the body, the blood supply to damaged cells is increased and the healing process is stimulated. Shockwave therapy and nerve flossing are some of the other treatments we use here at Shephard Health.
