Treatment Options for Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

Posted by Advanced Specialty Care on Apr 26, 2019 2:44:35 PM

Carpal Tunnel Syndrome is a common disease where a nerve in the hand becomes pinched. Typical symptoms are numbness or tingling in the hand which for many patients, can be severe enough to wake them up during the night.

Carpal Tunnel Syndrome is often the result of a combination of factors including:

  • A congenital predisposition - the carpal tunnel is smaller in some people than in others
  • Trauma or injury to the wrist that cause swelling, such as sprain or fracture
  • Work stress; repeated use of vibrating hand tools
  • Overactivity of the pituitary gland
  • Hypothyroidism
  • Rheumatoid arthritis
  • Mechanical problems in the wrist joint
  • Fluid retention during pregnancy or menopause
  • The development of a cyst or tumor in the canal 

The diagnosis of carpal tunnel syndrome is often clear after examination by a hand specialist and in most cases, a good look at patient history and a thorough physical examination are often all that is needed to make the diagnosis.

Sometimes, but less often, injuries are caused by a single direct blow, such as hitting a tree root.
