Many careers and hobbies involve extensive use of your hands. Because of this, developing carpal tunnel syndrome can become very inconvenient and even frustrating. You don’t have to silently suffer, though. Premier Bone & Joint Centers can help treat your carpal tunnel syndrome, thanks to our highly experienced team of doctors at our satellite clinic in Riverton, Wyoming.
What Is Carpal Tunnel Syndrome?
The carpal tunnel is a narrow passageway surrounded by bones and ligaments on the palm side of your hand. The median nerve passes over the carpal bones through this passageway. When the nerve becomes compressed, it is known as carpal tunnel syndrome. This condition has various causes, such as the anatomy of the wrist, health problems, and repetitive hand motions. Symptoms of carpal tunnel syndrome usually include tingling, numbness, and weakness in your fingers, hands, and wrists.
