What is the effectiveness of orthotic intervention in pain reduction for adults with Carpal Tunnel Syndrome (CTS)?
|dc.description.abstract||Carpal Tunnel Syndrome (CTS) is a condition that is very common among adults and occurs when pressure is put on the median nerve in the carpal tunnel of the wrist. Symptoms include numbness, tingling, or pain in the wrist and hand that can impact an individual’s participation in activities of daily living (ADLs). This critically appraised topic (CAT) aims to determine the effectiveness of wearing an orthosis and reducing pain levels for adults with CTS. Preliminary evidence was found to support the use of orthotic intervention to decrease pain levels in participants with a diagnosis of mild to moderate CTS.||en_US|
