Effective treatment for pronator teres syndrome

There are many causes of pronator teres syndrome

Common causes of pronator teres syndrome include overexertion of the arm muscles with activities such as tennis, weightlifting, using a shovel or straining the wrist during work. It may also be caused by repetitive motions or direct trauma to the forearm. If left untreated, it can reduce hand strength and dexterity leading to further problems. Fortunately, chiropractic care, physiotherapy, massage therapy and other treatments can help to reduce symptoms and prevent recurrence. A chiropractor may recommend specific exercises to help restore normal range of motion and strengthen muscles in the arm. Similarly, physiotherapy can provide relief through stretching exercises that are designed for the particular type of injury, helping improve movement at the elbow joint and nerve pathways that control muscles in the forearm region. Massage therapy also offers relief by improving circulation in affected areas and encouraging natural healing processes.

I cannot recommend Dr. Shannon Webster and Dr. Michael Torreiter enough. Both are super friendly and understanding and it has been an absolute pleasure to have met them and been treated by them.

I have been receiving treatment from Dr. Webster for a few months and I've been feeling much better. I had sever knee, shoulder and back pain. I couldn't squat or do push ups without my joints screaming at me. But now I'm not able to only do all those but also feel stronger. The most important piece is that she listened and took my history of many injuries into consideration. And as a dancer, I couldn't have asked for a better chiropractor who not only helped me feel better but also understood my needs.

I also brought my grandmother to Dr. Torreiter for her back pain for acupuncture. He was extremely kind, understanding, compassionate and everything that I could ask for. He made her feel comfortable and explained every step during each treatment. He made sure that she was well taken care of and also made other important referrals that lead to her recovery.

So far I have referred my whole family to these two wonderful individuals and everyone's experience has been equally great. Thanks to them we all are doing much better!
