Carpel Tunnel Pain Relief with

Active Release Technique

How ART (Active Release Technique) can help with Carpel Tunnel Syndrome 

Hand and wrist conditions such as Carpal tunnel syndrome are becoming very common. And in most cases, the carpal tunnel syndrome does not respond well to traditional treatment approaches and surgery is usually recommended by doctors. Fortunately, a new treatment approach known as ART (active release techniques) is confirming to be safe and effective for carpal tunnel syndrome cases. 


How does carpal tunnel syndrome occur? 

Carpal-tunnel syndrome is a condition that is caused by the compression of the median nerve at the wrist. It is associated with tingling, numbness, and pain in the hand, fingers, and wrist. If not treated, it can cause a lot of pain and even affect the day-to-day activities. However, it is always essential to treat the cause of the problem and not just the symptoms.

Why traditional treatments cannot treat carpal tunnel syndrome 

Traditional methods such as heat or ice, anti-inflammatory medications, acupuncture, and surgery have several problems when it comes to carpal tunnel syndrome treatment. Almost all the above treatment approaches take a long time to provide noticeable results. They only offer temporary relief, and instead of fixing the underlying causes of the pain, they deal with the symptom and don't treat muscle restrictions.


How Active-release technique can help with Carpel Tunnel Syndrome 

Since most of the traditional treatment approaches are not effective for carpal tunnel syndrome, ART is the only option that is safe and provides tangible results in a short period of time. Active release technique is the quickest, most effective, and a permanent solution for carpal tunnel syndrome. It is a treatment technique where the chiropractor uses the hands to assess the mobility of the tissues. It's an approach that was developed about twenty years ago. It involves several procedures that are also used to relieve various body pains such as back pain, neck pain, shoulder pain, knee pain and many others. 

What makes active release technique different from the traditional treatments? 

It is designed to address tissues adhesions. For example, the chiropractor does not only focus on the muscles that surround the median-nerve in the hand, forearm or wrist, he also releases the adhesions that glue the nerves to the surrounding muscles. Active release technique can only be performed by skilled and qualified practitioners because it is different from the normal body massage. ART is effective and the results are felt immediately. In most cases, the technique is combined with strengthening and stretching exercises.
