- Brief summaryThe Carpal tunnel syndrome is a frequent occuring compression neuropathy of the upper limb. Literature shows that surgery of the wrist is the most effective intervention for the treatment of Carpal tunnel syndrome. However surgery often leads to complications like instability and rather occuring degeneration of the wrist. Furthermore non-invasive interventions like braces, neurodynamic mobilization, Low Level Lasertherapy and ultrasound have positive effects in treating Carpal tunnel syndrome. But these are mostly short term effects. Because of these insufficient results of the different interventions more research is necessary to find an alternative non-invasive intervention for the treatment of Carpal tunnel syndrome. The aim of this study is to investigate the influence of focused extracorporeal shockwave therapy in the treatment of patients with Carpal tunnel syndrome.
