Carpal Tunnel Syndrome (CTS) and De Quervain's Tenosynovitis are two common conditions that affect the hands and wrists, causing pain, numbness, and weakness. While there are various treatment options available, physical therapy has emerged as an effective approach to alleviate symptoms and improve overall hand function. In this blog post, we will delve into the world of physical therapy, specifically focusing on the expertise of Dr. Deshmukh's Pain Clinic in providing effective treatments for CTS and De Quervain's Tenosynovitis.
Understanding Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
CTS is a condition that occurs when the median nerve, which runs from the forearm to the hand, becomes compressed or irritated as it passes through the carpal tunnel in the wrist. This compression can result in pain, tingling, numbness, and weakness in the hand and fingers. CTS is often caused by repetitive hand and wrist movements, such as typing, using a computer mouse, or playing a musical instrument.
