Carpal Tunnel syndrome and Carpal Tunnel surgery

Aims of post-surgical rehabilitation


From carpal tunnel


  • To maximise your hand function
  • To prevent sensitivity and joint stiffness following surgery
  • To learn tendon gliding exercises to prevent the tendons from
    sticking to the scar
  • To facilitate scar mobility and normal palm function
  • To promote muscle mobility

This is a free service where you will have a consultation with our senior therapist, Ben Cunningham. In this appointment Ben will advise management strategies and if you request ongoing care then this will be charged as per our current rates. Worksafe and TAC clients will not be charged personally for any consultations.

Carpal Tunnel

For those experiencing pain and pins and needles in the hand due to Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, surgical release is often the treatment of choice. Action Rehab will be involved prior to the procedure addressing your post surgical expectations and following surgery through the implementation of your hand rehabilitation program. Surgical correction involves a small cut in the palm of the hand whereby the carpal ligament is released to relieve pressure within the carpal tunnel.
