Effective Therapy for Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
Carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS) is a medical condition due to compression of the median nerve as it travels through the wrist at the carpal tunnel. The main symptoms are pain, numbness, and tingling, in the thumb, index finger, middle finger, and the thumb side of the ring fingers.
In severe cases, this can lead to pain travelling up to the neck and shoulder, often misleading health care professionals into thinking the radiating arm pain is actually coming from the neck rather than the wrist.
Your osteopath should be able to diagnose if you have this and recommend that you consult with your doctor for an appropriate onward referral if the symptoms are severe.
