How can physical therapy help to relieve carpal tunnel syndrome?

Carpal tunnel syndrome is a condition where the nerves for the hand and fingers are pinched in the wrist.  Your physician may refer you to physical therapy.  Treatment may include stretching to reduce the nerve pressure; ultrasound or iontophoresis to reduce swelling; recommendations for sleeping positions, working to relieve the stress on the wrist; and in methods to decrease repetitive motions.  Physical therapy can help by preventing the need for surgery.  When surgery is necessary, a physical therapist can guide you to regain functional use of the hand and return to work safely.
