Carpal Tunnel Syndrome (CTS)

Carpal Tunnel Syndrome is an inflammation of the median nerve as it passes with the flexor tendons through what is called the carpal tunnel of the wrist, and causes wrist pain.

The median nerve is the nerve that supplies nerves to the thumb, index finger, middle finger, and half of the ring finger. General hand numbness is often misdiagnosed as CTS.

True Carpal Tunnel Syndrome involves numbness on the palm of the hand, as well as the thumb, index finger, and middle finger.

Carpal Tunnel symptoms include numbness, weakness, tingling, loss of fine motor movement, and sometimes atrophy of the muscles. Frequent typing and computer mouse usage are leading causes of Carpal Tunnel.

Our Approach

Carpal Tunnel is a condition that must be carefully diagnosed to determine the exact location of nerve impairment.

We use specific tests and movement screens to isolate where the symptoms originate.

Specific treatment protocols and stretches from Active Release Technique® are used to improve the movement of the nerve and remove nerve compression in the wrist. MRI or nerve conduction testing may be used to help identify any nerve damage.
