Do your hands ache from typing, carrying items or doing the things you love, like playing an instrument? Do you have trouble bending or straightening your fingers? These signs—along with inflammation, shooting pain and numbness—are all signs of Carpel Tunnel Syndrome (CTS). Unless treated, they’ll only continue to disrupt your life.
At Paramount Physiotherapy & Sports injuries Clinic, we specialize in carpel tunnel treatment in Brampton, ON. Our goal is to help manage the pain and discomfort of CTS, so you can continue to live the life you love, without disruption.
Ergonomic and Lifestyle Adjustments
Carpel tunnel relief in Brampton, ON largely comes from learning how to cope with and manage your condition on a daily basis. The best way to reduce the stress and strain on your hands, wrists and arms is through ergonomic and lifestyle adjustments to support them. We teach you how to:
- Relax your grip and control the pressure you’re putting on your hands and wrists.
- Adopt a neutral wrist position to lessen the force of stress and strain.
- Make ergonomic adjustments to your posture and workplace to support hands and wrists.
- Use finger and wrist exercises to help strengthen (not strain) key tendons and muscles.
- Use braces to support your arms and wrists while you sleep or work.
In addition, we can recommend advice on how to improve blood flow to the hands and maintain generally good health, supporting your greater nervous and cardiovascular systems.
If you’ve recently had surgery to address your CTS, proper rehabilitation is important in reestablishing the use of your hands and wrists. We’ll gladly assist you in setting up a rehab schedule that restores strength, dexterity and comfort to your hands, wrists and arms.
We focus on exercises that slowly reestablish flexibility and mobility. This includes range of motion exercises, light strengthening and dexterity tests. The goal is to restore as much of your strength and mobility as possible and give you the benefit of pain-free use of your hands.
With proper treatment, Carpel Tunnel Syndrome can be managed and overcome. Paramount Physiotherapy & Sports injuries Clinic is dedicated to helping you regain the strength and dexterity in your hands and wrists, so you can get back to living the life you love.
