Light at the End of the Carpal Tunnel: Manual Therapy for Compression Neuropathy of the Median Nerve
Copyright :


Are you frustrated by the lack of positive outcomes for your clients with carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS)?  Wish you had a better approach to offer?  It is time to see the light at the end of that dark carpal tunnel. 

Some clinicians simply continue the old modalities and exercise approach for CTS and watch their clients going for surgical decompression despite their best efforts.  Did you know there are established clinical practice guidelines (CPGs) to help you manage this debilitating condition more effectively?  Move beyond standardized rehab protocols and get a grip on CTS with manual therapy, a key component of successful outcomes for people with CTS, based on current CPGs. Streamline your exam and treatment when you home in on what tests are critical to identify CTS, what interventions really work, and begin to incorporate those interventions into your plan of care rapidly. 

Chronic strain and repetitive motion contribute to the inflammation of the flexor tendons and median nerve, with resultant fascia restriction, tingling, numbness, weakness, pain and stiffness.  Managing the adhesions or scar tissue is key to restoring better mobility and function, to allow clients to tolerate exercise and activities with less pain.  Integrate quality manual interventions into your plan of care for successful results.  Accelerate recovery with proven assessment and therapeutic techniques based on the latest CPGs for CTS and feel the satisfaction of success.
