Carpal Tunnel Therapy

Q.Is there any physical therapy treatment for Carpal Tunnel? Thank you.

A. The best method of treating Carpal Tunnel Syndrome is to evaluate the possible causes.

A PT can look for muscular imbalances, such as forearm tightness/weakness and can complete an ergonomic assessment of any repetitive motions you may be experiencing during the day, such as typing, cooking, sleeping, etc.

At that time, recommendations can be made by a PT to adjust your work station and a proper home stretching program can be issued often alleviating the problem.

Also, PT's work very closely with patients following carpal tunnel surgery to assure a proper recovery.
