Place the XLR8 over the area of involvement (AOI). The clinician may choose to (#2) laser over the nerve root (located using the myotome/dermatome chart) or the organ involved (using the Merrick chart).
After identifying the area(s) to be treated use the Erchonia Percussor to amplify the release of soft tissue adhesions!
Refer to the Laser Essentials video at Performancepractic TV for Upper Extremity Peripheral Nerve Entrapments. Test the indicator of thumb and little finger or palpate areas of involvement in the:
- Cervical spine
- Brachial plexus - Place the laser in the triangular space anterior to the trapezius and first rib, posterior to the clavicle, and lateral to the SCM.
- Musculocutaneus nerve - innervates the coracobrachialis muscle on the edge of the axillary triangle.
- Axillary nerve-Quadrilateral space between the teres minor, teres major, long head of the triceps and the humerus.
- Radial nerve- Located in the Triangular Space between the teres minor, long head of the triceps, and humerus.
- Ulnar nerve- medial side of the elbow in the ulnar notch and area where the wrist flexors attach.
- Median nerve - as it bisects the pronator and supinator muscles of the forearm and lies beneath the flexor retinaculum of the wrist.
- The wrist area itself.
The nutrient depletion of B6 is directly related to carpal tunnel. More importantly administer B-Complex.
