Carpal Tunnel Syndrome Dr. Mia McDougal

Carpal tunnel syndrome occurs when the median nerve is compressed at the wrist. The median nerve originates from cervical (neck) spinal nerves and controls movement and sensation to the palmer side of the hand, thumb, and fingers.

Numbness and a “pins and needles” sensation are the most common symptoms. Most often the thumb, index, and middle fingers are involved. Symptoms are often worse upon waking or during activities that involve flexing and extending of the wrist. As the syndrome worsens, decreased grip strength makes it difficult to perform tasks with the involved hand.

The Graston Technique incorporates a patented form of instrument-assisted soft tissue mobilization that enables clinicians to effectively detect and treat scar tissue and restrictions that effect normal function.
