Studies have concluded that carpal tunnel patients receiving massage experienced less pain, reduced symptoms and better grip strength than patients that did not receive massage. Before you receive treatment, understand that while you feel pain in your wrist, hand and forearm, the true muscle noncompliance is within the elbow, shoulder or both. Determining the pathway of pain pinpoints the muscle group in need of work.
For example, if you have numbness or tingling in your pinky, your therapist would address the muscles associated with entrapping the ulnar nerve. If you have symptoms in the middle fingers, the pain trigger could be the muscles associated with entrapping the median nerve. If there’s pain in the thumb, it might be the radial nerve that is entrapped. When chemical toxins build up in the muscles, pain will emanate from the joint associated with the muscle attached to it. This causes a loss of range of motion that can be limiting to daily life.
