The four benefits of our carpal tunnel treatment plans

Carpal tunnel treatment based on physical therapy techniques has one primary aim: to heal a condition called carpal tunnel syndrome. Also, this type of treatment can have four specific benefits for you.

Carpal tunnel syndrome is caused by pinching of the median nerve. This nerve that runs through a narrow passage on the palm side of your wrist. It’s this narrow passage, known as the carpal tunnel, which gives this condition its name. Carpal tunnel can cause you to experience several different symptoms. These symptoms can include pain, tingling and numbness in your wrist, hand or arm.

There are several different kinds of workplace tasks that can increase your chances of developing carpal tunnel syndrome. One of these tasks is excessive amounts of typing with poor wrist posture. Another task that can increase your likelihood of developing this condition is using vibrating tools regularly.  You should be especially aware of symptoms of carpal tunnel syndrome if you were job sounds like either of these two tasks.

If you know that you’ve developed carpal tunnel syndrome, the team at Advent Physical Therapy can help you. We can develop a treatment plan that uses physical therapy techniques that are personalized to fit your needs. It’s these techniques that can provide you with four specific benefits, which are:

  • Reducing the pinching of your median nerve
  • Lowering the levels of inflammation and pain in your hand, arm and wrist
  • Improving the mobility of your wrist
  • Educating you on how to use better wrist posture at work
