About Course

Physiotherapy can have a massive impact on the global burden of median nerve pain. Through the application of good examination skills, effective clinical reasoning and appropriate selection of interventions the impact of swrist pain for any individual can be significantly reduced. In addition, the high tendency for chronicity in median nerve pain can be lowered with effective management.

Description

Carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS) is an entrapment neuropathy caused by compression of the median nerve as it travels through the wrist’s carpal tunnel.It is the most common nerve entrapment neuropathy, accounting for 90% of all neuropathies.Early symptoms of carpal tunnel syndrome include pain, numbness, and paresthesias.Symptoms typically present, with some variability, in the thumb, index finger, middle finger, and the radial half (thumb side) of the ring finger.Pain also can radiate up the affected arm. With further progression, hand weakness, decreased fine motor coordination, clumsiness, and thenar atrophy can occur.

Patients can be diagnosed quickly and respond well to treatment but the best means of integrating clinical, functional, and anatomical information for selecting treatment choices have not yet been identified.
