Exercise and mobilisation interventions for carpal tunnel syndrome – Trip Database

Two compared a mobilisation regimen to a no treatment control, exxercise compared one mobilisation intervention for example carpal bone mobilisation to another for example intervemtions tissue mobilisationnine compared nerve mobilisation delivered as part of a multi-component intervention to another non-surgical intervention for example splint or therapeutic ultrasoundand three compared a mobilisation intervention other than nerve mobilisation for example yoga or chiropractic treatment to another non-surgical intervention.

Non-surgical treatment, including exercises and mobilisation, has been offered to people experiencing mild to moderate symptoms arising from carpal tunnel syndrome CTS. Showing of 32 references. However, the effectiveness and duration of mobilisatiln from exercises and mobilisation for this condition remain unknown.

Until more high quality randomised exdrcise trials assessing the effectiveness and safety of various exercise and mobilisation interventions compared to other non-surgical interventions are undertaken, the decision to provide this type of non-surgical intervention to people with CTS should be based on the clinician’s expertise in being able to deliver these treatments and patient’s preferences.

Exercise and mobilisation interventions for carpal tunnel syndrome.

CarlsonMaureen G. We collected data on adverse events from included studies. Platelet-rich plasma ultrasound-guided injection in the treatment of carpal tunnel syndrome: However, of these, only three fully reported outcome data sufficient for inclusion in the review. Only four studies reported the primary outcome of interest, short-term overall improvement any measure in which patients indicate the intensity of their complaints compared to baseline, for example, global rating of improvement, satisfaction with treatment, within three months post-treatment.

Only two studies measured adverse effects, so more data are required before any firm conclusions on the safety of exercise and mobilisation interventions can be made. Effectiveness of Physical Therapy and Electrophysical Modalities. To review the efficacy and safety of exercise and mobilisation interventions compared with no treatment, a placebo or another non-surgical intervention in people with CTS. However, a unit of analysis error occurred in this trial, as the correlation between wrists in participants with bilateral CTS was not accounted for.


Therapeutic ultrasound for carpal tunnel syndrome. This paper has been referenced on Twitter 14 times over the past 90 days. One very low quality trial with 14 participants found that all participants receiving either neurodynamic mobilisation or carpal bone mobilisation and none in the no treatment group reported overall improvement RR The studies were heterogeneous in terms of the interventions delivered, outcomes measured and timing of outcome assessment, therefore, we were unable to pool results across studies.

Mobilization of the Nervous System. JohnsonBritta L. Two review authors independently assessed searches and selected trials for inclusion, extracted data and assessed risk of bias of the included studies.

Showing of 37 extracted citations. The risk of bias of the included studies was low in some studies and unclear or high in other studies, with only three explicitly reporting that the allocation sequence was concealed, and four reporting blinding of participants. Sixteen studies randomising participants with CTS were included in the review. Another very low-quality trial with 26 participants found that more CTS-affected wrists receiving nerve gliding exercises plus splint syndorme activity modification had no pathologic finding on median and ulnar nerve distal sensory latency assessment at the end of treatment than wrists receiving splint plus activity modification alone RR 1.
