Signs of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
The carpal tunnel is a narrow passageway surrounded by bones and ligaments on the palm side of your hand. This part of the wrist allows the median nerve and tendons to connect the hand and forearm. When the median nerve is compressed, it results in carpal tunnel syndrome and can cause symptoms in the hand or wrist such as:
These symptoms can make it difficult to do a variety of tasks, like driving, cooking, and typing. This is why many people seek us our for treatment.
Your Go-To Hand & Wrist Doctors
At Premier Bone & Joint Centers, we have board-certified and fellowship-trained orthopedic doctors with extensive experience treating carpal tunnel syndrome. So, you can feel confident trusting us with your hands and wrists. We almost always treat carpal tunnel syndrome with conservative options like immobilization, pain medication, physical therapy, and injections. If carpal tunnel syndrome does not respond well to these methods, we may recommend surgery. If it comes to this, you can rest assured that our surgeons will perform a careful and thorough procedure.
