Carpal Tunnel Syndrome happens when the median nerve becomes entrapped at the wrist resulting in pain or numbness which can be relieved with neuromuscular massage.
People who have jobs that involve repetitive motion tasks such as typing or using a hammer are susceptible to carpal tunnel syndrome. Carpal tunnel syndrome can also be the result of inflammation or swelling in the area from other causes.
A specialist in neuromuscular massage can evaluate whether the compression is taking place at the wrist or whether it is occurring higher up. Compression can occur anywhere along the path the nerve takes from the base of the neck through the shoulder and down through the arm. Neuromuscular massage will address the muscles from the neck to the wrist to relieve compression and promote circulation to the median nerve which will help relieve pain and numbness.
