Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
Carpal tunnel syndrome is wrist pain medically described as a median entrapment neuropathy caused by pressure on the median nerve in the wrist. Carpal tunnel syndrome symptoms include pain, tingling, numbness, and other symptoms in the wrist. The pain can be caused by genetic and environmental factors or a combination of both.
Genetic factors of carpal tunnel syndrome can include diabetes, pregnancy, obesity, hypothyroidism and arthritis. Environmental factors of carpal tunnel syndrome can include repetitive motion of the hands and wrist, heavy manual labor, wrist injuries and smoking.
Physiotherapy treatments for carpal tunnel syndrome includes splinting, nerve glide therapy, carpal bone mobilization, magnetic therapy, and yoga.
