Any sport can lead to carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS), a common ailment that causes pain and numbness in the hand and arm. CTS, however, does not just affect athletes. Butchers, knitters, and even people who spend their days at a desk typing are susceptible.
Fortunately, CTS can be treated non-invasively and affordably, given how many people are susceptible to it. Massage therapy is that. And all the advantages of percussion massage therapy are easily accessible with a RECOVAPRO.
The carpal tunnel is a tiny, one-inch-wide opening in the wrist. The transverse carpal ligament is on the roof, while the carpal bones, also known as wrist bones, are on the floor and sides. Due to its extreme hardness, this tube can only be stretched so far.
The median nerve extends from the neck through the arms and into the hand. This nerve, which controls sensation in the fingers and hand, travels via the carpal tunnel. The flexor tendons, which allow the hand's fingers to move, also go through the carpal tunnel.
When the median nerve is squeezed or crushed, pain results. Additionally, the hands and arms experience tingling and numbness due to this. Carpal tunnel syndrome is present here.
Massage relieves the symptoms of CTS by relaxing and extending the muscles and fascia.
Use of the ball head attachment is advised. Next, select the desired speed setting, turn on the RECOVAPRO massage gun, and put it over the targeted body part.
To relieve carpal tunnel syndrome:
Stretch the forearms for 10 to 15 seconds after the massage. Do this twice daily, before bed and in the morning.
