I have a client who has had carpal tunnel surgery (twice now). Recovery first time went pretty smoothly. This time not so smoothly (has some pain). She’s faithfully done all the rehab physio and exercises and is ready to get back to training. Any great ideas how to physically challenge her without hurting?
Many people with carpal tunnel syndrome experience pain and discomfort when they grasp things that have a small circumference.
I was given a suggestion by a physical therapist to increase the circumference of the grips/handles for the post-rehab carpal tunnel client.
One of the other things I would suggest is really familiarizing yourself with the pathology of carpal tunnel syndrome (if you have not as yet) so you can better understand what your client is experiencing.
Best to you!
