Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

Is an overuse injury of the muscles of the forearm that cause compression and irritation to the median nerve as it passes under the carpal ligament of the hand. This nerve is responsible for sensation and muscle movement of the hand. When the nerve is irritated, there is a resulting weakness and numbness in the hand. This can be treated with Active Release Techniques® and Graston Technique®, as well as by adjustment of the carpal bones that are not moving correctly.
