In addition, most if not everything will be included in one price, not billed later. If you believe you are suffering from Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, contact us today and let us help you.
What is Carpal Tunnel Syndrome?
• Pain in the arm
• Pain in hand
• Pain in fingers
The wrist has a space called the carpal tunnel, where the median nerve and 9 tendons pass from the forearm into the hand. CTS occurs when pressure builds up from swelling in this tunnel and then places pressure on the nerve. When the pressure becomes severe enough to disturb how the nerve should function, the patient experiences numbness, tingling, and pain in the hand and fingers.
What Are Common Signs of Carpal Tunnel?
How Do I Treat Carpal Tunnel?
froIn many cases CTS can be relieved without surgery. Some treatments we often try include changing the way you use your hand and keeping the wrist splinted in a straight position so we can help reduce pressure on the affected nerve. In some cases, a steroid injection into the carpal tunnel may alleviate the symptoms by reducing swelling impacting the nerve.
When these non – surgical treatments fail, surgery may be needed to make more room for the nerve. We decrease pressure on the nerve by cutting the ligament that forms the top of the tunnel on the side of your hand closest to the palm. The incisions necessary for this surgery vary, but the goal is the same – we need to enlarge the tunnel and reduce pressure on the nerve. After surgery, there may be some soreness around the incision. The numbness and tingling may be relieved immediately, or may still take some time. It can take a few months for you to regain sufficient strength in the hand and wrist allowing you to return to normal activity levels. At Freedom Orthopedics, we have helped many patients from Brookhaven regain regular use of their hands and wrist post surgery with the short drive to our Toccoa office.
