Carpel Tunnel Syndrome & Bowen

Carpal tunnel syndrome is a widely known entrapment neuropathy in which the body's peripheral nerves are compressed or traumatized

Carpel TunnelIt occurs when the median nerve, which runs from the forearm into the hand, becomes pressed or squeezed at the wrist. [The median nerve controls sensations to the palm side of the thumb and fingers (except the little finger), as well as impulses to some small muscles in the hand that allow the fingers and thumb to move.]

There is sometimes thickening from irritated tendons or other swelling in the wrist joint. This narrows the tunnel and causes the median nerve to be compressed.

Much pain, numbness and tingling is felt. Some severe cases may be prescribed surgery. Treating the cause however, not just the symptoms is the aim of bodywork such as Bowen therapy.

How can Bowen help carpal tunnel?

As the problem or cause of carpal tunnel is not the nerve itself, but the pressure on the nerve (due to a combination of factors such as repetitive movements or injury to the wrist), Bowen can have significant impact for healing. 

As Bowen Therapy uses rolling movements along the fascia to help re-align any misalignments, release tension in the muscles, it also assists in reducing nerve pressure. Often the back and neck areas are addressed first to correct any imbalances with further treatments shifting the focus on the arm and forearm itself. 

As well as Bowen Therapy, patients may be advised to adjust their activities to minimise strain on surrounding joints and overworked muscles.

In spinal vertebral joints, water is not only a lubricant for the contact surfaces, it is held in the disc core within the intervertebral space

Contingent upon the area and force of the torment, different techniques can be utilized to lessen and/or kill the agony at the source. Since there are such a large number of various sorts of torment: migraines, spinal pains, post surgery, intense, unending, cyclic, joint, sinusitis, joint inflammation et cetera, this convention is intended for the general manifestations of agony and not a particular sort of torment. Other than this convention there are different techniques to decrease or take out torment, for example, needle therapy, pressure point massage, reflection, entrancing, rub, chiropractic, solution, magnet treatment, chilly/warm packs to give some examples. Thanks!
