Treatment of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

thumb-422147_1280If you are experiencing aching or tingling in your hand or fingers, it may be very likely that you suffer from Carpal Tunnel Syndrome. Carpal Tunnel Syndrome is a disorder, which causes tingling, numbness and dull aches in the hand and thumb through ring fingers and is the most common site for upper extremity nerve compression or neuropathy.

What causes Carpel Tunnel Syndrome?

The carpal tunnel is a passageway through the wrist carrying multiple tendons and one of the hand’s major nerves. Injury, fluid build-up or repetitive overuse can cause this tunnel to develop a build up of pressure – causing the nerve to ache and lose feeling. This build up of fluid can develop as a result of rheumatoid arthritis, injury, pregnancy or overuse.

How is Carpel Tunnel Syndrome cured?

A surgical procedure can simply and effectively release the pressure from your nerves in your arm and hand. Termed carpal tunnel release, the surgery involves division of a thickened ligament compressing the median nerve at the base of the palm causing dramatic relief of symptoms.
