Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
This is typically a repetitive action injury and can involve the entire arm from shoulder to hand. Treatment consists of heat, ice, ultrasound, and patient
education. Tension release exercises and posture exercises are a part of the program so that circulation can be enhanced into the affected extremity. Prevention is key to managing this problem so significant time is
spent in teaching patients what to avoid and how to hold tools and work at computers where one can be in the same postural position for prolonged periods of time.
