Carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS) results in numbness, tingling, weakness, and other problems in your hand due to pressure on the median nerve in your wrist. This nerve, along with several tendons, runs from your forearm to your hand through a small space in your wrist called the carpal tunnel. This nerve is responsible for movement and sensations in your thumb and first three fingers but not your little finger. Pressure on the median nerve causes CTS. This pressure can come from swelling or anything that makes the carpal tunnel smaller. For instance, certain diseases may contribute to the swelling such as hypothyroidism, rheumatoid arthritis, or diabetes. Repetitive movements, especially in flexion, may create swelling and cause carpal tunnel. Another possible cause of CTS is pregnancy due to increased fluid in the extremities, hormonal influences, and postural considerations. Our Sparta carpal tunnel doctor will isolate the cause of your CTS and will relieve the pain and stiffness.
Our Sparta carpal tunnel doctor may being your treatment using a number of non-surgical remedies such as physical therapy, stretching exercises of the wrist, hand, and fingers, wearing a brace to immobilize the joint, and corticosteroid injections to reduce the inflammation. If these techniques are not sufficient enough to resolve the problem, we may suggest surgery. We work closely with our patients to determine which treatment options are the most appropriate for their condition and life style. It is important to us that our patients take an active role in their health care. Teamwork and commitment to high quality care and results are important to us. So if you are experiencing hand discomfort and pain, take the first step towards healing by making an appointment with these leading orthopedists today.
