Conservative care is the FIRST choice for carpal tunnel syndrome ?
A recent study found that manual therapy– like what’s provided in our clinic, is often as effective and certainly less expensive than surgery for carpal tunnel syndrome.
Our office combines hands-on manual therapy with exercises to help treat this condition. One simple exercise that we recommend for carpal tunnel syndrome is the median nerve glide. (video attached)
If you think you may have carpal tunnel syndrome, give our office a call for a complete evaluation and treatment plan today!
