Get Relief for Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

Carpal tunnel syndrome is a fairly common condition that affects the hands and wrists. It is caused by pressure on a nerve that runs from your forearm through a passageway in your wrist (carpal tunnel) to your hand. Anything that reduces the space in the carpal tunnel, such as high temperatures, too much or too little movement, or injuries caused by overuse, can lead to carpal tunnel syndrome.

The discomfort and pain of carpal tunnel syndrome can ruin your day — but you don’t have to live with it. We have a program that can help reduce the strain on the wrist and limit the risk of carpal tunnel syndrome flaring up again in the future. Once the wrist heals, the pain of carpal tunnel syndrome disappears, and you can return to work or the activities you love.

What causes carpal tunnel syndrome?

Carpal Tunnel syndrome is caused by pressure on the median nerve. This nerve runs from your forearm through a passageway in your wrist (carpal tunnel) to your hand. Anything that could squeeze or irritate the median nerve flowing through the carpal tunnel space may lead to carpal tunnel syndrome.

There are a number of lifestyle and medical factors that can increase the risks of developing carpal tunnel syndrome, including poor desk ergonomics, workplace factors, inflammation, chronic illnesses, and obesity.

How is carpal tunnel syndrome treated?

The non-pharmaceutical and non-surgerical treatment options we provide for Carpal Tunnel syndrome may include:

Our treatment staff perform a thorough consultation and physical examination to determine if you are a good candidate for our treatment depending on the severity of the condition and what treatments you have already tried in the past. In some cases our providers may refer you to another medical professional, such as a primary care doctor, to manage chronic medical conditions that could be contributing to bodily inflammation concurrent to performing conservative care in our office. 

What about surgery and steroid injections?

While surgery and steroid injections have shown a 60-90% success rate in treating carpal tunnel syndrome, they both carry higher risks than that of conservative treatment and aren’t always the first line of approach recommended for a patient.
