Surgical Technology and Health Management Processes provide Life-Changing Opportunities to Eliminate Carpal Tunnel Syndrome.
It has never been easier to be proactive in the detection and treatment of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome (CTS). Early diagnosis and conservative management of CTS can avoid many of the costly and debilitating consequences of this condition, not the least of which are time, pain, and productivity.
What is Carpal Tunnel Syndrome?
Carpal Tunnel Syndrome is a condition that affects the wrist and hand. The symptoms of CTS include numbness, tingling, weakness, and pain in the hand and wrist. The condition is caused by compression of the median nerve, which runs through the carpal tunnel in the wrist. CTS is a common condition, affecting about 3% of adults in the United States. It is more common in women than men, and it tends to occur more often in people who are overweight or have diabetes.
Carpal Tunnel Syndrome Treatment Options
Treatment for CTS will vary depending on the severity of your condition. If you have mild CTS, your doctor may recommend a splint or corticosteroid injections to reduce inflammation and relieve symptoms. In more severe cases, surgery is often the best option to release the pressure on the median nerve, and restore the level of comfort that you need and deserve to return to the lifestyle you are accustomed to. If you think you may have CTS, it is important to see a doctor for an accurate diagnosis.
Regardless of the treatment options, it is important to take steps to prevent the condition from worsening. These steps include maintaining a healthy weight, avoiding repetitive motions, and using proper ergonomics when working. If you are experiencing any symptoms of CTS, it is important to see a doctor for an accurate diagnosis and treatment plan. Early diagnosis and treatment of CTS can help avoid many of the debilitating consequences of this condition.
