What is Carpal Tunnel Syndrome?

By definition, carpal tunnel syndrome occurs when the nerve running through the tunnel at the end of the wrist does not have enough space and is consequently compressed. This results in pain, numbness, tingling, and/or weakness in the palm, side of the thumb, and/or index fingers, which often increases at night. These same symptoms can also be caused if the nerve is compromised higher in the arm, such as in the forearm or even the elbow. Usually, this is due to tight or scar filled muscle tissue compressing the nerve as it passes through the arm.

What are some of the symptoms of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome?

  • Pain in the wrist, palm, or fingers
  • Numbness or tingling in the palm, side of hand, or fingers
  • Weakness in the hand with gripping
  • Pain increases at night

After about 10 visits, I started to notice significant improvement. I remember writing out birthday invitations for my daughter, a task which usually would have been quite painful to get through, and realizing I was not having any pain. I immediately canceled my surgery and decided to continue with this therapy. After about 6 months, the symptoms had pretty much disappeared and have remained that way for about a year.Barbara Viennau
