How to Get Rid of Your Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

Facial Fillers Chester NJHaving numbness, tingling, or achiness in your fingers, hands, and wrists is the last thing that anybody wants. If you spend your days typing or working with your hands and have experienced these symptoms, you may have a condition called carpal tunnel syndrome. But what is carpal tunnel syndrome and how can it be treated? Let’s take a closer look.

What Is Carpal Tunnel?

The carpal tunnel is a passageway through your wrist that carries tendons and nerves. When pressure builds up on the nerve in the carpal tunnel it can cause carpal tunnel syndrome that results in aching, numbness, tingling, and even impaired hand function. If you have recently been diagnosed with carpal tunnel syndrome or if you experience any of these symptoms on a regular basis, then you may not know where to start as far as treatment goes. Depending on the severity of your condition, you may be able to use a simple splint but if your condition is severe, then Dr. Weinstein may recommend surgery.

Splint

Doing everyday tasks like picking something up or using your phone can oftentimes exacerbate your symptoms and make them work. When you isolate your wrist and hand with a splint, you may be able to alleviate some of the symptoms that you are experiencing; just make sure that it’s the right fit for your hand because if it’s too tight or too loose, it may cause worse symptoms.

Physical Therapy

If you type a lot for a living or work with your hands, then you know just how sore they can get after a long day of work. Sometimes, physical therapy is recommended to help stretch your hands and loosen your nerve to alleviate pressure. During physical therapy, your hand therapist will work with you on hand strengthening and stretching exercises that you can continue to do at home.

Surgery

The last thing anyone with carpal tunnel wants to have to do is undergo hand surgery, but sometimes it’s necessary. During surgery, Dr. Weinstein will cut the tissue that placing pressure on your nerve to help relieve pressure. Surgical results vary from patient to patient and depend on how severe your carpal tunnel was and how long that you had it for.
