The more time you spend hunched over a keyboard, the more likely you are to experience the symptoms of carpal tunnel syndrome. We live in a world where working (and playing) on computers is almost a necessity. Computers have become essential work and household tools and this constant use takes its toll on your body. One of the growing issues is finger, hand, and wrist symptoms arising from carpal tunnel syndrome.
Carpal Tunnel Syndrome Symptoms
If you’re experiencing pain, numbness, or tingling in your hands, you might be developing carpel tunnel syndrome. Our physical therapists at Downtown Physical Therapy NYC are trained in relieving your carpal tunnel symptoms and restoring pain-free function to your hands. We can help!
Your carpal tunnel is a pathway in your wrist area that protects your median nerve as it runs from your forearm into your hand. This nerve provides critical sensation to your palm, thumb, and all of your fingers except the pinkie finger. Because the pinkie finger isn’t involved, it gives you a lot of insight on whether your pain is related to carpal tunnel syndrome or if there’s something else happening.
For an accurate diagnosis and a physical therapy plan that will put you on the path to recovery, put your trust in our award-winning physical therapists and we’ll customize a treatment plan that will work specifically for you.
Our state-of-the-art facility and full gym is designed to offer a variety of treatment options, all guided by New York’s top-rated physical therapists.
