Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
Pain, numbness and tingling in the first three fingers of the hand (and occasionally the ring finger) can be the result of a narrowing of a tunnel created by the wrist bones called carpals. This narrowing can compress on the median nerve that supplies this region of the hand which is called Carpal Tunnel Syndrome. As we focus our attention on the symptoms, Stroma therapists use a detailed examination of the upper extremity in order to assess the full nerve supply for the hand. For false CTS, where symptoms in the hand are not due to the narrowing rather a nerve impingement somewhere above the wrist, we are able to target the cause and get quick results. For more information about our approach, please contact our office and speak directly to our therapists.
