Carpel Tunnel Syndrome
CPS is a painful aching in the wrist. It is often associated with weakness in the hand and a tingling or numbness sensation in the fingers (though not the little finger). It is where the radial nerve passing through the wrist joint is compressed and can occur after an injury or due to repetitive strain syndrome.
Massage of the forearm, hand and fingers can improve muscle tone and circulation. It can also help in stimulating the nerves, and along with mobilisation techniques to loosen and free the wrist joint, regular massage can help in speeding up recovery time of this injury.
