Kinesiology Taping for Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

Carpal Tunnel SyndromeCarpal tunnel syndrome, a common repetitive stress injury affecting the median nerve in the wrist, responds well to kinesiology tape therapy. Sports and other activities requiring fine or repetitive wrist motions, such as regular computer use or construction work, can cause swelling and inflammation within the carpal tunnel, a narrow passageway in the wrist that is surrounded by bone and connective tissue. Because the swelling can’t spread outward, pressure on the median nerve inside the carpal tunnel increases, causing pain, numbness, and tingling in the wrist and forearm, which can reduce or seriously hamper proper wrist function. Ultimately, it can severely restrict movement and interfere with fine motor coordination. Kinesiology taping has been shown to be very effective in reducing the pain, swelling, and inflammation associated with carpal tunnel syndrome. When kinesiology tape is applied to the wrist, it gently lifts the skin, reducing pressure on the underlying structures. It interacts with both the nervous system to provide pain relief and the lymphatic system to reduce swelling and inflammation. Because kinesiology tape is lightweight and elastic, it is comfortable to wear and still allows full range of movement of the wrist and hand, unlike many bulky carpal tunnel braces and supports.
