Astym Therapy Gave Me Relief From Carpal Tunnel

I had been suffering with a substantial amount of tingling and numbness in my left hand for almost a year. This started out as just happening through the night, then moved to happening also through the day time also. I visited with a doctor at my Sports Medicine Clinic, and after having nerve testing on my wrist, I was diagnosed with Carpal Tunnel. The surgery went very well, I was healing up nicely, and the tingling and numbness was gone. Approximately six weeks after the surgery, I noticed a slight tugging and pain when pressure was put on my palm. The doctor explained that I had pivotal pain, and could use physical therapy, to increase blood flow to my palm. I had physical therapy done at Mid-Nebraska Physical Therapy with Laura Dickinson. Laura was awesome at explaining how Astym therapy works and about the treatments. Astym therapy initiates your body’s own healing process. After six weeks of therapy my hand feels so much better, I can’t thank Laura enough for her help.
