CTS or Carpal tunnel syndrome is commonly a problem which affects the hand and the wrist. This painful and debilitating condition is characterized by numbness and tingling in hands and fingers, pain in the wrist and hand as well as difficulty in gripping objects. Medications and physical therapy play an integral role in loosening the tissues around the median nerve and decreasing inflammation. The aim at Pro Therapy Services Holmdel, NJ is to relieve the pain and/or numbness. Which results in the restoring of normal usage of wrist, hand and fingers.
More about (CTS) Carpal Tunnel Syndrome:
The Carpal tunnel consists of the bones and tissues on the palm of our hand and is just beneath the skin. The tunnel protects the main nerve to your hand. The syndrome occurs when the median nerve (the nerve traveling through the carpal tunnel) gets compressed at the wrist. There are a number of factors that can cause compression of median nerve. Any condition that decreases the size of the carpal tunnel or causes inflammation of the tissues inside the carpal tunnel can result in the symptoms of CTS. This includes computer users, violinists, mechanics, grocery checkers, and people with existing medical conditions such as diabetes and rheumatoid arthritis.
