Carpal Tunnel Treatment

Carpal tunnel syndrome is essentially a nerve condition caused by excessive pressure on the nerves that run through the hand. Carpal tunnel treatment with low level laser therapy (or cold laser) is effective because it can assist with the repair of nerves whilst modulating the pain signals on those nerves.  Typical treatments for carpal tunnel syndrome include splints and physiotherapy but unless the underlying causes of the condition are treated the nerve irritability can persist.


Low level laser is a non-invasive, painless modality to treat this often very painful condition. Similar to other nerve related conditions the treatment required can be longer than with non-nerve related conditions due in part to the complexity of nerves. When compared to surgical interventions however, many patients opt for laser therapy.
