Carpal Tunnel Syndrome St. Augustine

raised-laser-wristDo you have numbness, tingling or weakness in the hand or arm? If so, you may suffer from carpal tunnel syndrome. Caused by the compression of the median nerve in the wrist, it results in a feeling that you need to “shake out” your hand. Symptoms can occur during the night or day. You may have a weakened grip and the muscles at the base of your thumb can deteriorate if left untreated. If your case is more advanced, you may have trouble between detecting hot or cold sensations.

The Causes of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

The median nerve runs from your upper arm through the carpal tunnel that is located in your wrist. It can become compressed due to reasons such as

  • Autoimmune disorders like rheumatoid arthritis
  • Diabetes
  • Fluid retention from menopause or pregnancy
  • Fracture or trauma to the wrist
  • High blood pressure
  • Pinched nerve in the wrist
  • Thyroid dysfunction

How Laser Therapy Can Help You

Our Class IV laser has three powerful effects: the reduction of pain and inflammation and the enhancement of your healing. The relief of pain comes about by diminishing neuronal impulses and increasing your endorphin release. Inflammation is reduced when inflammatory factors are cut down along with dilating emphatics that cut down on your edema. Finally, when your blood circulation increases, cytokines are released. Fibroblast activity is stimulated and collagen produced, which combine to accelerate your healing.
