  • What is the carpal tunnel?

The carpal tunnel is a narrow passage in your wrist through which muscles tendons and the median nerve pass.

It is commonly thought that the median nerve is being pinched within the tunnel due to repetitive movement or awkward wrist positioning.

  • What is the usual way to treat carpal tunnel syndrome?

The traditional treatment for carpal tunnel syndrome is to perform daily stretches and wear a wrist splint at night. This often does not help and the next stage is sometimes surgery.

  • How do we treat Carpal Tunnel Syndrome?

We have found that the median nerve is actually not being pinched in the tunnel. What we find is that the nerve is being stretched along its entire length due to poor posture. The other end of the median nerve starts inside the spinal cord. So if the spine has become crooked, the whole nerve can become stretched to the point that it malfunctions. By correcting your posture using Advanced BioStructural Correction, we can quickly relieve the excess tension on the median nerve.

  • Who gets carpal tunnel syndrome?

Specifically, we find the person will have a very forward head posture, a hump at the base of the neck, flattening of the spine between the shoulder blades and, they often also have poor breathing.

  • How quickly does carpal tunnel treatment work?

We have found that every client treated for this condition reports improvement from the first treatment and symptoms are mostly resolved with only a few treatments. This is because the nerve quickly recovers its function once the tension is released.
