Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

What is Carpal Tunnel Syndrome?

It is a medical condition in which the tunnel becomes narrower & tissues present around the flexor tendons are swollen. These particular conditions cause immense pressure on the median nerve. The tissues around the flexor tendon are termed “synovium”.

The function of synovial tissues is lubrication and facilitating the movements of fingers. When synovium becomes swollen it acquires space in the “carpal tunnel” and makes it extra crowded around the nerve. BioFlex uses a conservative method for carpal tunnel syndrome treatment using laser therapy – no cuts, no drugs, pain free!
