Our treatment method

During the first session, the therapist will carry out a postural assessment as well as range of motion assessment and pain assessment when needed in order to choose the appropriate treatment plan for you. These will be reassessed at the beginning of each follow up session as well as needed. 

 

The treatment method consists of advanced myofascial release techniques, trigger point work and advanced stretching techniques, combined and executed using a whole body approach whereby the whole body is considered as one interrelated unit and included in the treatment as necessary. This increases the effectiveness of the treatment and it produces long lasting results. 

 

Using the forearm and wrist pain protocol as work foundation, most of the work will be done with the client facing upwards with some work as well around the middle back area and rotator cuff muscles. 

 

Most of the treatment time will be concentrated on the arm myofascial line, with special attention to muscle groups that tend to recreate similar symptoms to carpal tunnel syndrome when irritated and or muscles that tend to impinge the median nerve anywhere along its path (nerve that feeds into the hand and the cause of carpal tunnel syndrome). 

 

The therapist’s focus will be releasing the pain levels and any other related symptoms the patient is presenting with, like tingling, numbness or weakness in the hand and arm. The therapist will be looking as well at releasing secondary structures that might be contributing to the development of the presentation.

Understanding Carpal tunnel syndrome

The nervous system is in this case the protagonist for this presentation, in particular the median nerve. 

 

This nerve radiates from the neck (C8-T1) and travels under the clavicle and through the arm into the hand through sometimes quite narrow passages.

 

Carpal tunnel syndrome is defined by the NHS as pressure on the median nerve at the wrist caused by the swelling of the carpal tunnel passage (the carpal tunnel is a narrow passageway on the palm side of the wrist, surrounded by ligaments and bones). 

 

In clinic we come across a lot of clients diagnosed with carpal tunnel syndrome where the compression of the nerve doesn’t happen at the wrist and it’s caused instead by an irritated muscle compressing on the nerve higher up along the nerve’s path. We also come across clients with very similar symptoms caused by an irritated lattisimus dorsae or rotator cuff muscle, where the median nerve is out of the picture completely. 

 

Whilst true carpal tunnel syndrome has a complex prognosis, the previous cases, which are the majority of cases, have a good prognosis with clinical massage and myofascial release as the choice of treatment.

 

Carpal tunnel syndrome symptoms: 

 

– Tingling, numbness and weakness in the hand, fingers and arm.

 

 The job of the therapist is releasing the muscles and fascial along the nerve’s path that might be compressing the nerve, all the way from the neck to the hand. The therapist will also be looking at identifying and correcting other lifestyle factors or imbalances and restrictions along the body that might be contributing to the presentation.
