DO YOU SUFFER FROM CARPAL TUNNEL SYNDROME?
Carpal Tunnel Syndrome is caused by a direct trauma or a repetitive overuse of the wrist, which has resulted in the medial nerve of the wrist being squeezed or compressed due to occupational tasks such as keyboard skills.
But the main cause of injury is sporting activities that involve repetitive flexion and extension of the wrist, i.e. cycling, throwing events, and gymnastics. Trauma or injury to the forearm, tendons or ligaments, plus sprain or fracture, can also cause this injury. Symptoms are a burning, numbness or itching in the palm of the hand and fingers, and the wrist may swell. Possible loss of strength in the wrist is common, so gripping objects is difficult. Pain may become worse at night.
- Medial and extensor retinaculum (tendon that lies across the wrist)
Although one session is highly beneficial, regular massage treatments maximise the numerous benefits.
