What Can Neuromuscular Massage Treat?

Excess tension in muscles causing pain.

Restricted blood flow which delays healing.

Restricted range of motion in the joints limiting activity.

Compression of structures upon nerves causing sharp pain.

Postural distortion caused by overuse of muscles on one side, and underuse on the other.

Referred pain where trigger points of high electrical activity sends pain to other areas of the body.

Release Carpal Tunnel Syndrome with Massage Therapy

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.
