Carpal Tunnel Syndrome is one of those terms you hear any time someone has wrist/hand pain or symptoms. In fact, true carpal tunnel syndrome where the median nerve is compressed within the carpal tunnel of the wrist is quite rare. 90% of the time or more, we find that patients’ wrist and hand symptoms are caused by joint fixations in the wrist, hand, and elbow, with the associated muscle imbalances. We treat the joints with gentle adjustments and the muscles with Graston Technique, myofascial release, and targeted exercises. We also use Kinesiology Tape(RockTape), when indicated to help reduce inflammation, facilitate muscles, and reduce pain. The tests to determine if you have true carpal tunnel syndrome are routine and easily performed in our office. If your hand/wrist/fingers are having pain, are tingling, or feeling weak, come into our office and after a history and thorough exam we can let you know your options for getting back to pain-free use of your hands.
