Methods: The ULNT1 (n=10) and ULNT2 (n=10) was applied to the carpal tunnel syndrome in patient of 20 subject for 10 time 5 set during 4 weeks. Both groups received conventional physical therapy (hot pack with 30 minutes and ICT with 15 minutes and ultra sound with 15 minutes). Results: The ULNT1 showed the difference which the result of this study significantly in the median nerve motor latency, median nerve motor amplitude, median nerve sensory latency, median nerve sensory amplitude, grip strength and pain. ULNT2 showed the difference significantly in median nerve motor latency, median nerve motor amplitude, median nerve sensory latency, median nerve sensory amplitude and pain. Conclusions: If it implements by applying the traditional physiotherapy and ULNT1 and ULNT2 to the carpal tunnel syndrome subjects according to the subject state and function, the remedial value can be more enhanced.
