Chronic pain is a health issue that can significantly affect one’s quality of life. It is typically defined as pain that lasts for a minimum of three months and can be caused by injury or illness, stress and anxiety, poor posture or inactivity, and medications. While the causes vary, many effective ways to manage chronic pain exist.
Carpal tunnel syndrome is a painful and often debilitating condition that affects the hand and wrist due to compression of the median nerve. The symptoms can range from mild tingling in the hands to severe pain, numbness, and weakness, making it difficult to perform everyday activities. Fortunately, physical therapy can help reduce the symptoms of carpal tunnel and improve the patient’s ability to use their hands and wrists.
