Carpal Tunnel Syndrome Treatment

Carpal tunnel syndrome is quite common, and causes pain, tingling, and numbness, in the forearm and hand. The condition strikes when the median nerve, one of the major nerves in the hand, is compressed or squeezed along through the wrist. For most patients, carpal tunnel only worsens as time goes by.

Carpal tunnel can cause loss of strength in the hand, and it may create difficulty when handling both small and large objects, which can affect your daily routine. The pain itself stems from the bone and tissues that are not aligned properly, which places pressure on the nerve. In most incidences, the cause behind the condition is an incident or fracture that involves the wrist. 

Therefore, it’s no major surprise that specific occupations can increase the risks of carpal tunnel. This includes jobs that require repetitive use of a patient’s hands or pulsating tools. However, it’s also possible to develop the condition with no rhyme or “reason” behind it.

Those who are pregnant or obese are more susceptible to carpal tunnel, as well as patients with metabolic disorders that are linked to the pituitary or thyroid glands.
