Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

Carpal Tunnel syndrome is compression of the Median Nerve as it passes underneath the transverse carpal ligament at the front of the hand. 

The symptoms often include:

  • weakness with gripping objects 
  • swelling in the fingers 
  • pins and needles in the thumb, first and second finger 
  • burning sensation in the hands 
  • symptoms worse with hypothyroidism, computer use and pregnancy 

Treatment for carpal tunnel syndrome can involve:

  • soft tissue release of the muscles in the hand, forearm, shoulder, neck and upper back
  • articulation of the joints in the hands (carpals), elbow, shoulder and neck 
  • stretch of the muscles and fascia 
  • taping the hand = open up the transverse carpal ligament, reducing compression 
  • cupping along the nerve pathway to decompress the space around the nerves 
  • stretches and exercises to help alleviate the symptoms
