Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

Carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS), is the most common disorder of the arm, afflicting up to 21% of the U.S. work force. Repetitive use causes compression of the median nerve as it passes through the wrist, triggering hand numbness and weakness. Recent studies indicate that physical therapy can be as effective in treating CTS as surgery.

De Quervain’s Syndrome

De Quervain’s tenosynovitis, also known as Gamer’s Thumb, affects the tendons at the base of your thumb. Typically caused by extensive gaming or yardwork.

Trigger Finger

Trigger finger is a type of tendinitis that is usually caused by repetitive grasping. The tendon that bends the finger becomes inflamed and may develop a lump, causing a “catch” or pop when moving the finger. The finger typically “locks up” in a curled position.
