Carpal Tunnel Syndrome (CTS)

Carpal tunnel syndrome is often caused by overuse of the forearm muscles which results in swelling and scar tissue in the wrist.  Doctors often proscribe muscle relaxers, physical therapy, or even surgery for this condition.

Why massage?

Massage helps CTS by breaking up knots and trigger points in the forearm, breaking down scar tissue in the wrist, and promoting good blood flow throughout.  Muscle relaxers are a temporary fix, at best- you release the tight muscles without addressing any of the other problems.  Physical therapy can help to some degree, but is mostly focused on strengthening other muscles to shift the burden, and is largely self directed, which can lead to over- or under- training. Surgery can open the carpal tunnel, but creates MORE of the scar tissue and inflammation that caused the problem in the first place.
