Osteopathic Manipulative Therapy for Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
Dr. Harris Gellman
Dr. David Boesler
Thank you for your interest in our research study on the effects of Osteopathic
Manipulation in patients with Carpal Tunnel Syndrome.
study will look at the potential positive effects that osteopathic manipulative techniques can have on patients with carpal
tunnel syndrome, such as decreased pain, improved sensation and increased muscle strength.
The osteopathic techniques which are utilized in the study are very gentle hands-on
techniques that address the soft tissues, muscles, and bones around the hand, wrist and elbow, in order to take pressure off
of nerves that have been affected in patients with carpal tunnel syndrome.
commitment to our study will be six sessions of osteopathic hands-on manipulation for 15-20 minutes each, followed by a nerve
conduction test performed with Dr. Gellman to look for improvement in the nerve function in the wrist.
We thank you for your interest in our study. Should you have any additional questions,
you can contact Dr. David Boesler at
