Carpal tunnel syndrome:
Carpal tunnel syndrome is most commonly described as wrist pain with numbness/tingling of the hand. The symptoms arise from a nerve (median) that is pinched between the neck and fingers. This can occur in the wrist, the neck, and/or muscles of the shoulder and forearm. Treatment for carpal tunnel syndrome is the adjustment of the neck, myofascial release (sports massage) of the associated muscles, and cold laser for the inflamed tissues. Long term treatment includes proactive activities such as self stretches, ergonomic awareness, and posture correction.
