nerve treatments in
Nerves in the extremities can become trapped by tissue as a result of repetitive use, occupational hazards, or injury. One common example is carpal tunnel syndrome. Common, well-known treatment options involve surgically releasing the nerve in the operating room. Motus offers an alternative to surgical treatments.
& areas of issues
Nerve pain can be debilitating. Common symptoms include numbness, tingling, and weakness in the extremity. Oftentimes, the pain will wake patients from sleep. If these symptoms are prolonged, there can be a loss of muscle known as atrophy. Conservative treatments can include bracing, physical therapy, modifications to the work space, physical therapy, medications, and steroid injections. However, Motus uses ultrasound-guided techniques with the use of platelet-rich plasma (PRP) which can free the nerve from the structures trapping it and provide relief of symptoms.
