Carpal Tunnel Syndrome Therapy: Get Treatment at Physical Therapy of SA In Live Oak

Carpal Tunnel Syndrome is a common condition that affects millions of people globally and some in Live Oak, Texas. It arises when the median nerve, responsible for feeling and muscle control in the thumb, index finger, middle finger, and half of the ring finger, gets compressed by the carpal tunnel, a narrow passage on your wrist. Consequently, this results in pain, tingling, numbness, and weakness in the hand.

Treatments we offer for Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

Our team at Physical Therapy of SA understands the full extent of the negative effects that Carpal Tunnel Syndrome (CTS) has on one’s daily living. We have a strong commitment to our patients, and as such we provide comprehensive therapeutic treatments that are effective for each patient. In order to make sure those common activities can be performed and pain is relieved, our programs work to relieve symptoms and improve overall quality of life.
A variety of hand techniques are used by our well-trained therapists to treat CTS-related issues such as muscle tension, stiffness and joint mobility. Manual therapy helps decrease pain, increase flexibility, and promote better nerve function.

Personalized exercise programs are developed in order to strengthen muscles, promote better hand and wrist functioning and improve movement range. These exercises focus on particular parts affected by CTS for permanent recovery and prevention of relapses.

We use ultrasound technology to apply heat deep into the tissues, which increases blood flow, reduces inflammation, and speeds up the healing process. This therapy is very effective in addressing pain and rigidity linked with CTS.
Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation (TENS) and Neuromuscular Electrical Stimulation (NMES) are examples of electrical stimulation techniques that can relieve pain, reduce muscle spasms, or improve nerve conduction. They offer noninvasive relief that complements other treatment approaches.
Custom-made braces or splints can be suggested to restrict the wrist in a neutral position that helps reduce pressure on the median nerves, thereby relieving symptoms of CTS. These are personalized tools for sleep and restoration.
Our specialists assess the furniture, day-to-day chores and ergonomic causes of CTS. We target reducing wrist strain and preventing any worsening signs through correct ergonomic changes and teaching about ergonomics principles.
We appreciate knowledge related to CTS, its causes as well as self-management techniques. We educate patients on ways of mitigating the symptoms over time by altering their lifestyles and adopting ergonomic approaches.
Cold therapy, heat therapy, and massage are among those that might be included in the treatment plan to manage pain, including carpal tunnel syndrome along with anxiety-related complications, hence enhancing the relaxation effect.
