Physical Therapy in Plaistow for Hand Issues
Welcome to Pinnacle Physical Therapy’s guide to endoscopic tunnel release.
Carpal Tunnel Syndrome (CTS) is a condition affecting the wrist and hand. While the most common surgical procedure for carpal tunnel syndrome is still the open-incision technique, some surgeons are using a new procedure, called endoscopic carpal tunnel release.
This procedure is done using an endoscope (a small, fiber-optic TV camera) to look into the carpal tunnel through a small incision just below the wrist. Using the camera allows the surgeon to release the problematic tissue without disturbing the overlying tissues.
This guide will help you understand:
- what part of the wrist is treated during surgery
- how surgeons perform the operation
- what to expect before and after the procedure
- what Pinnacle Physical Therapy’s approach to rehabilitation is
