Try Massage for Carpal Tunnel Pain

Published October 10th, 2023 by Markson Chiropractic And Medical

If you spend a lot of time using a computer or working with tools and experience pain or weakness in your wrist, you may be experiencing the effects of carpal tunnel syndrome. Massage therapy may be an effective way to reduce carpal tunnel wrist pain and help you avoid more invasive treatment options. 

What Causes Carpal Tunnel Pain? 

Carpal tunnel syndrome is a result of damage to or pressure on the median nerve, which runs from your palm up to the forearm. It tends to manifest in the form of pain, numbness, and tingling in the wrist. This can make it difficult to maintain your grip, and the pain may even become intense enough that it interferes with your sleep.

Your likelihood of getting carpal tunnel syndrome may be affected by factors such as a previous injury to the wrist, obesity, and inflammatory conditions like arthritis. One of the most common causes of carpal tunnel is repetitive hand and wrist motions, which might include using a mouse and keyboard or working on an assembly line.

Trying Massage for Carpal Tunnel Wrist Pain

If you experience the effects of carpal tunnel syndrome, you’ll have several options for relief. Depending on the severity, it may be as simple as applying ice to your wrist or wearing a brace. Some cases may require surgery to correct the issue. Massage may be an ideal bridge for reducing wrist pain caused by carpal tunnel syndrome and keeping you out of the operating room.
