Treatment for Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
What is a Carpal Tunnel Syndrome?
The carpal tunnel is a narrow passageway on the palm side of your wrist made up of bones and ligaments. It is through this passageway only that the median nerve runs. This median nerve, when compressed or pinched, leads to the swelling of the carpel tunnel and is known as the Carpal Tunnel Syndrome (CTS). This results in pain, numbness, tingling and weakness in the wrist, fingers and thumb.
CTS is common among people working in the IT field, doing assembly work or pregnant women. Conditions like wrist fractures, arthritis, awkward postures, overuse and repetitive hand movements, etc. also elevate this disorder.
Signs and Symptoms of CTS include:
- pain and problems with thumb movements
- pins and needles especially in the thumb, index and middle fingers
- symptoms worsening or only occur at night
- radiating or referred pain into the forearm or upper arm
- weakness of the hand/weak grasp
- clumsiness and loss of hand coordination
If left untreated, CTS may lead to permanent nerve damage and loss of functioning in your fingers and thumb.
