About

The purpose of this study is to investigate the effect of bioptron light therapy on pregnancy related carpal tunnel syndrome

Full description

Carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS) is a symptomatic compression neuropathy of the median nerve at the level of the wrist, characterized by hand pain, numbness, and tingling in the distribution of the median nerve (thumb, index, middle finger, and the radial side of the ring finger) and a reduction in grip strength and hand function. The severity of symptoms can be clinically categorized into mild, moderate, and severe Bioptron phototherapy acts as a "sterile" trigger on human in vitro isolated peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMCs), affecting their cytokine production and driving the immune response towards an anti-inflammatory/reparative profile and representing a non-pharmaceutical and non-invasive option for several clinical conditionsA randomized control study, the women will be randomly assigned into two groups, (31 women for each group) equal in number. Group (A) will include 31 women will receive Bioptron light combined with advice and patient education (10 minutes per session, 3 sessions per week, for 4 weeks). Group (B) will be receiving advice only for same duration as group (A)
