Carpal Tunnel Pain

Carpal Tunnel Pain Treatment in Nashville, TN

Steve Kravitz Physical Therapy

Steve has magic hands. I started going to Steve after my first pregnancy. I had severe carpal tunnel during my first pregnancy which persisted for almost a year after my daughter was born. During my first pregnancy I was not able to use my right arm and I was in constant pain, to the point of not being able to sleep, brush my teeth or write. Not only was Steve able to relive my pain and restore function to my arm he managed my condition throughout my second pregnancy. Thanks to Steve I never lost function in my arm and did not suffer from the same debilitating pain. Within a few weeks after my son was born any tingling or weakness was completely gone. Steve is also extremely knowledgeable about how a woman’s body shifts during pregnancy and how to help everything from back pain to swelling.

Numbness, Pins and Needles, and Tingling Associated with Carpal Tunnel Pain and other Nerve Pain Entrapments:


●      Symptoms -

Numbness and pins and needle tingling occur when you lose a normal sensation in an area of the body. If you experience numbness, you cannot feel anything. Pins-and-Needle tingling is an abnormal, unpleasant feeling in a part of your body. It may feel similar to tiny pinpricks, tingling or shooting pains that travel down an arm or leg, or affect just one toe or both feet.


●      Causes of Numbness/Pins and Needle Tingling -

Most numbness or pins and needle sensation is due to pressure on nerves or the blood vessels that supply nerves. This can happen from sitting in an awkward position, like sitting cross-legged, or it may be a sign of a trapped nerve. Occasionally, it may be a sign of a more serious underlying issue like diabetes.
