Hi. Welcome to the Twitch Dry Needling video training series where I’ll show you a fantastic dry needling technique followed by a manual therapy technique to get great results for your patients every time.

These Dry Needling Techniques should only be applied by trained therapists who have completed an accredited course.

Okay. What do you do with a patient who’s got carpal tunnel syndrome? First muscle we’re going to think about, of course, is pronator teres. Pronator teres deep and the superficial heads and you’ve got the median nerve traveling right between those two heads. Now as it travels down the forearm between flexor digitorum superficialis and profundus, it’s going to come out the other end at the wrist. I’m going to show you a manual therapy technique to follow up the pronator teres dry needling.

So pronator teres, a very straightforward muscle to find right here off the common flexor origin right there. It’s the only oblique muscle in this area that you will find. We’re going to needle that very easily right in here. There we go. Gets great results for carpal tunnel syndrome and referral into that forearm. What else we’re going to do to follow up that dry needling technique.

Well, this technique here, biscuit breaking, right here to open out those tissues, the fascia at the wrist right here at the carpal tunnel itself where the median nerve comes in right like this. So, scooping up and opening this out just like this. So, we’re opening out just like that at the carpal tunnel to help somebody with carpal tunnel syndrome once you’ve done some needling to the pronator teres. I hope that helps.
