Do you have Carpal Tunnel Syndrome?
CTS is common as a work-related, repetitive-motion injury of the narrow passageway in the wrist. People who work with computers or in other jobs that require repetitive motion are more prone to CTS.
The constant flexion and extension of the wrist causes irritation of the tendons which leads to inflammation and pressure on the median nerve under the Carpal Tunnel.
- A burning wrist pain with numbness or loss of feeling in the thumb, index finger and middle finger which the median nerve supplies.
- A dull ache in the wrist and forearm with pain radiating in to the fingers.
- Loss of grip strength in your hand or electrical pain in your wrist & hand.
Perhaps there are imbalances in the neural pathway that feed your arm…like in your neck, chest or upper arm? This pain pattern is referred to as Thoracic Outlet Syndrom. Or maybe there is scar tissue surrounding the nerve or around your wrist causing more rubbing & friction than necessary? Any combination of these examples can cause your pain. Therapeutic Massage performed by a knowledgeable and skilled massage therapist may be an affordable and effective alternative to traditional approaches that have proven unsuccessful.
