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.
