CARPAL TUNNEL

DownloadInstructions

Carpal tunnel syndrome is caused when there is pressure in the carpal tunnel (a space in the wrist) that compresses the median nerve, causing the nerve to function improperly. Because the carpal tunnel is surrounded by bone on one side, and an inflexible ligament on the other, if pressure builds, the nerve has nowhere to go and becomes pinched.
When carpal tunnel syndrome occurs, the normal functions of muscle control and sensory communications in the hand are impaired. Problems that can occur in carpal tunnel syndrome include:

  • Pain
  • Numbness
  • Tingling
  • Weakness

The KT Tape application can help stabilize the carpel tunnel aiding in the normal function of the median nerve. If KT Tape does not bring relief, heavier bracing may be suitable. If neither of these brings relief, seek professional medical attention where additional measures can be taken including physiotherapy, injections or surgery.
