	Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

Overview

Also known as median nerve compression, it’s a nerve condition that causes tingling, numbness or weakness in the hand. It affects the median nerve which controls the movement and feeling in the thumb, the index finger and some parts of the ring finger. 

Carpal tunnel syndrome can occur in one or both hands and is caused by excess pressure, wrist anatomy and repetitive hand motions. However, it can also be caused by an inflammation in the wrist and lead to swelling and obstructing blood flow. It can halter hand movements which is why the patient should consult with a doctor immediately.

Complications:

  • Nerve damage
  • Recurring pain
  • Permanent muscle damage
  • Weakened wrists

Causes:

  • Thyroid dysfunction
  • Trauma
  • Diabetes
  • Autoimmune disorders
  • Arthritis

Symptoms:

  • Numbness and tingling in the hand
  • Pain and burning sensation that travels up the arm
  • Weakness in hand muscles
  • Severe pain in the wrist

Diagnosis: 
Our doctor will conduct a physical examination and nerve conduction studies to assess the severity. They will test the feeling in the patient’s hand, shoulder, wrist and fingers by applying slight pressure on the wrist to trigger the symptoms.

For further evaluation, the doctor will recommend electromyography to identify damage to the muscles controlled by the median nerve. If there’s any tenderness or swelling in the affected area, they may have to start the treatment as quickly as possible.
 

Symptoms

Treatment

Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

When the symptoms get severe, our doctor performs a procedure called Carpal Tunnel Release Surgery. During the surgery, they cut through the ligament that is pressing on the median nerve. It relieves pressure from the median nerve and tendons, which improves pain and function.

Tendons and ligaments are intricate and require extreme medical precision. That’s why one must only consult with experienced orthopaedic doctors. At Yashoda, all these requirements have been attended to well.

How should I prepare for the surgery?

Do I need to take any medicine before my surgery?

Depending upon the procedure and the patient's health, our surgeons may recommend some patients to medications.

Recovery time after the surgery may vary from one patient to another.
