Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, or CTS, is a condition in which there is pressure on the median nerve at the location of the wrist. This nerve is responsible for supplying feeling and movement to parts of the hand. Pressure on this nerve can cause numbness and tingling in the hand and fingers. As the nerve enters the hand through a narrow area in your wrist called the carpal tunnel, any swelling in this area can cause the nerve to be pinched, resulting in the numbness and tingling.
Laser therapy can help relieve both the cause and symptoms associated with carpal tunnel syndrome by improving the circulation to your wrists and reducing the inflammation constricting the carpal tunnel.
