Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

Carpal Tunnel Syndrome is a common condition that causes pain, tingling and weakness in the hand. It occurs when one of the major nerves to the hand, the median nerve, becomes compressed as it travels through a narrow passageway in the wrist called the carpal tunnel. Early diagnosis and treatment are important to prevent the development of muscle weakness and permanent nerve damage. Conservative measures such as wrist bracing and medications can often reduce symptoms. If symptoms persist, steroid injections can reduce inflammation within the carpal tunnel and provide relief. Surgery is a last resort if conservative treatment does not provide adequate relief.
