Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

Carpal tunnel syndrome symptoms are usually the result of nerve root irritation in the neck. I utulize a combination of Cox Cervical distraction www.coxtechnic.com combined with spinal muscle strengthing on the spineforce machine.I also Strenghthen hand and wrist muscles using a gyroscope (Dyna-Flex Gyro Exerciser) Often I find patients have a "double crush syndrome". I usually treat the hand and elbow with Graston technique- this is a myofascial technique that has a FDA Approval to treat Carpal Tunnel Syndrome and cold laser therapy. I have seen some fantastic results with these methods.
