Do You Have Carpal Tunnel Syndrome?

Do you have numbness or tingling in your thumb index and middle fingers? Do you have weakness in your grip? Persistent numbness and grip loss are primary symptoms of carpal tunnel syndrome.

Causes of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

Carpal tunnel syndrome is caused from a compression of the median nerve as it passes through a narrow opening in the wrist (carpal bones). Anything that crowds or compresses this area can lead to carpal tunnel syndrome. Workplace stresses (like typing) can lead to wrist flexor tension and increased pressure on the median nerve. Additional body tension like thoracic outlet syndrome can impinge the nerve in the neck or chest, adding additional median nerve stress.

How Can Massage Help?

Tension accumulates over time due to excessive activity, inactivity, or trauma. Consistent care for the body restores suppleness of your muscles back to their original condition. An ongoing health care plan keeps bodily stress away allowing you to fully participate in life without pain.
