Treatment For Carpal Tunnel

Although it is a gradual process, for most people carpal tunnel syndrome will worsen over time without some form of treatment. For this reason, it is important to be evaluated and diagnosed by a doctor early on. In the early stages, it may be possible to slow or stop the progression of the disease.

Diagnosis

Our physicians may tap the palm side of your wrist, a test called Tinel sign, or fully flex your wrist with your arms extended. They might also do tests including:

  • Imaging tests. X-rays, ultrasounds, or MRI exams can let your doctor look at your bones and tissues.

  • Electromyogram. Your doctor puts a thin electrode into a muscle to measure its electrical activity.

  • Nerve conduction studies. Your doctor tapes electrodes to your skin to measure the signals in the nerves of your hand and arm.

What Causes Carpal Tunnel?

Often, people don’t know what brought on their carpal tunnel syndrome.

Repetitive motions, like typing, or any wrist movements that you do over and over. This is especially true of things you do when your hands are lower than your wrists.

Conditions like hypothyroidism, obesity, rheumatoid arthritis, and diabetes

Pregnancy

Symptoms

You might first notice that your fingers "fall asleep" and become numb at night. It usually happens because of how you hold your hand while you sleep.

In the morning, you may wake up with numbness and tingling in your hands that may run all the way to your shoulder. During the day, your symptoms might flare up while you’re holding something with your wrist bent.

  • Burning, tingling, or itching numbness in your palm and thumb or your index and middle fingers
  • Weakness in your hand and trouble holding things
  • Shock-like feelings that move into your fingers
  • Tingling that moves up into your arm
