Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
Do you have nerve pain in your hand and wrist? Does the pain get worse when typing or writing or with other movements of your fingers and wrist? This program was designed by a Doctor of Physical Therapy and will teach you the best exercises for alleviating pain due to irritation of the nerves in the wrist and hand.
Carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS) is the most common compression neuropathy of the peripheral nervous system with approximately six percent of the United States population being affected by this clinical condition.
Although the pathophysiology of this condition is not fully understood, intraneural edema is consistently observed in these cases and can have irreversible consequences on nerve function. Without the ability to adequately reduce this edema, a type of miniature compartment syndrome may result leading to impaired neural physiology and mechanics.
Previous research has documented positive outcomes when using neurodynamic mobilization (NDM) to treat patients diagnosed with CTS. More recent research, has demonstrated how neural mobilization may work to reduce symptoms by positively affecting nerve physiology including decreased edema and, ultimately, lessened neural compression.
If you suffer from CTS symptoms, this program will teach you exercises, including neural mobilization techniques, that can work to improve nerve health, decrease pain and improve your overall function.
