Carpal tunnel syndrome impacts millions of Americans each year. While this condition can cause pain and discomfort, it’s entirely treatable. At our clinic, we offer a variety of treatments and therapies to manage symptoms from carpal tunnel syndrome. 


What Is Carpal Tunnel Syndrome?


The carpal tunnel is a passageway extending from the wrist to the hand. It consists of bones, tendons, and ligaments. Carpal tunnel syndrome occurs when the median nerve, which is a major nerve in the forearm and hand, is compressed. This pressure can cause multiple symptoms in the wrist and hand, such as numbness, weakness, and tingling. 


What Causes Carpal Tunnel Syndrome?


Carpal tunnel syndrome can be caused by several factors, including:


  • Repetitive hand motions

  • Wrist anatomy

  • Holding extreme hand and wrist positioning for extended periods 

  • Health conditions such as diabetes, thyroid gland imbalance, and rheumatoid arthritis


Treatments for Carpal Tunnel Syndrome


If you’re experiencing pain that may be from carpal tunnel syndrome, seek out treatment as soon as possible. By treating the symptoms early on, pain and other symptoms can be quickly reduced with simple, non-invasive treatment options. 


Making small changes to your lifestyle can be effective in relieving pain from carpal tunnel syndrome. For example, you can reduce the strain on your wrists, hands, and fingers by avoiding: 


  • Repeated wrist and hand movements

  • Lifting heavy objects

  • Gripping objects for extended periods 

  • Vibrating power tools


Additionally, regular exercise and gently stretching the hands and wrists can help prevent the onset of carpal tunnel syndrome.
