Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

CARPAL TUNNEL SYNDROME

For carpal tunnel syndrome we use gold standard  Shockwave Therapy which is one of the most advanced non-surgical and non-invasive treatment available for a wide range of stubborn conditions that are difficult to treat using a conventional treatment approach (this includes carpal tunnel which can be very difficult to treat).  Shockwave Therapy will preclude the need for steroid injections and invasive surgeries and enable rapid relief from your pain.

Typical Symptoms: Begins with tingling and/or numbness in the hand that can progress in severity

Carpal Tunnel Syndrome (CTS) can begin with tingling and/or numbness in the hand that can progress in severity. Fluid accumulates under a tight ligament (called a transverse carpal ligament) inside the wrist causing pressure on the median nerve that passes underneath it.

It has a higher incidence rate in those people who have desk bound jobs or are involved in any occupation/activity that involves repetitive gripping or squeezing. It can also occur during pregnancy, and because of other issues such as diabetes, thyroid problems or osteoarthritis of the wrist. Typically, it generates pain in the anatomy in the hand supplied by the median nerve
