Carpal tunnel

Carpal tunnel syndrome is a condition that often causes both hand and wrist pain.  It occurs when the median nerve, which is located on the palm, is inflamed.  Most frequently diagnosed in people aged 30 to 60, carpal tunnel syndrome is three times more likely to affect women than men. Inflammation can also be caused by fluid retention during pregnancy, menopause, diabetes, high blood pressure, and rheumatoid arthritis.

If you suffer from carpal tunnel syndrome, surgery is not your only option.  We offer manual therapy to reduce pain and improve the function of your hand and wrist.

Tennis elbow

As the name implies, tennis elbow is caused by repetitive stress on the elbow joint, which is often the case in people who play tennis and other racquet sports. However, any activity that involves repetitive twisting of the wrist, such as golfing, swimming, and regular use of a hammer or screwdriver can all cause tennis elbow.  We recommend rest as the first step.  We also recommend various arm exercises to strengthen and stretch the muscles of the arm.
