Carpal tunnel syndrome
Carpal tunnel syndrome is a condition that causes pain, tingling, and numbness in the hand and arm.
The condition occurs when the median nerve is compressed as it travels through the wrist. The median nerve runs along an arm, goes through a passage in a wrist called the carpal tunnel, and ends in a hand. The median nerve controls the movement and feeling of all a fingers except the pinky finger. Women are likely to get this three times more than men.
It might be because they have a smaller carpal tunnel.
Carpal tunnel causes:
– Repetitive motion, like typing or any other wrist movements, when the wrist is bent for a longer time.
– Hypothyroidism, obesity, rheumatoid arthritis, diabetes, etc.
Carpal tunnel syndrome symptoms:
– burning, tingling, or itching numbness in a palm and thumb or an index and middle fingers.
– Weakness in a hand.
– Tingling that moves up into your arm.First symptoms are usually noticed when a person wakes up in the morning. This depends on how a person holds its hand while sleeping.During the day, the symptoms might get worse, while a person holds an object with a bent wrist, like driving or reading a book.
Carpal tunnel syndrome tests:
– Tinel sing
– Phalen’s test
Carpal tunnel syndrome protocol:
The first thing to decreases symptoms of carpal tunnel is a change of a lifestyle.
Decompression on anterior wrist tissues.
For this condition, we use different protocols as PNF, NKT, Neuro protocols, nerve glide exercises, mobility wrist exercises, strength training.
