Carpal Tunnel Syndrome Treatment

Overview

Carpal Tunnel Syndrome (CTS) is a common condition that is characterized by numbness, tingling, and weakness in the hand and arm. It is caused by the compression of the nerve that runs through your hand and arm, which travels through the carpal tunnel.

Symtoms

Common symptoms of CTS include tingling or numbness in the fingers, weakness in the hand, and discomfort and pain that may radiate up the arm. Symptoms often worsen at night or during activities that involve repetitive wrist motions.

Causes

The compression of the median nerve usually causes CTS due to swelling or inflammation of the tendons in the carpal tunnel (a passageway in the wrist made of bone and ligaments). This can be the result of repetitive hand and wrist movements, such as typing and prolonged and awkward wrist positions.

Risk Factors

  • Repetitive hand and wrist movements
  • Prolonged use of vibrating tools or machinery
  • Pregnancy, due to hormonal changes and fluid retention
  • Certain medical conditions such as diabetes, arthritis, or thyroid disorders

Prevention

  • Take frequent breaks from repetitive hand movements
  • Maintain good posture and wrist position during activities
  • Use ergonomic tools and equipment designed to reduce strain on the wrists
  • Perform stretching and strengthening exercises for the hands and wrists regularly

Treatment

Prompt diagnosis and treatment are important for Carpal Tunnel Syndrome. If you suspect you have CTS, consult with a healthcare provider immediately. Early detection is key to effective treatment and management.
