Physiotherapy for Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

Carpal tunnel syndrome is a condition that causes pain, numbness, and tingling in the hand and arm. The condition is caused when one of the major nerves to the hand — the median nerve — is compressed as it travels through a narrow passageway in the wrist called the carpal tunnel.

A therapeutic exercise program is one treatment option your doctor may recommend for carpal tunnel syndrome. Specific exercises may help reduce pressure on the median nerve at the wrist. These exercises may be incorporated with bracing and/or splinting, medication, and activity changes to help relieve symptoms.
