Carpal Tunnel Syndrome is a cluster of symptoms usually triggered by pressure on the median nerve that runs from the wrist to the forearm and controls the thumb and first three fingers. The carpal tunnel is located at the base of the hand and is a narrow passage of ligaments and bones. Sometimes irritated nerves and tendons tend to swell the inside of the tunnel and compress the median nerve, causing weakness and numbness in the wrist and palm and occasionally the forearm.
What are the symptoms of carpal tunnel syndrome?
Symptoms of carpal tunnel syndrome often begin with numbness and weakness, gradually paving the way for:
Occasionally inflamed and itchy fingers and palms
Decreased grip strength and difficulty grasping small objects
severe pain and frequent numbness
Weak hands and inability to perform manual tasks
Can't feel the difference between hot and cold
Who is more likely to develop carpal tunnel?
Working women between the ages of 45 and 60 have an increased risk of carpal tunnel syndrome.
People with broken or previously dislocated wrists.
People with rheumatoid arthritis or other inflammatory diseases.
people with nerve damage
Professionals who do work that repeatedly puts pressure on the wrist for long periods of time. (These jobs include sewing, knitting, working on an assembly line, accounting, baking or playing musical instruments).
Effective treatment options for carpal tunnel syndrome
Carpal tunnel treatment should be started as early as possible to avoid long-term damage to the median nerve. Any underlying cause of CTS, such as arthritis or diabetes, should be treated first.
In special cases, over-the-counter medications are prescribed to help relieve the pain, stiffness, and swelling associated with the carpal tunnel. These NSAIDs include ibuprofen, aspirin, and other pain relievers that provide short-term relief. While these drugs are effective in relieving discomfort, they do not address the underlying cause and therefore cannot treat the disease itself.
Yoga has been shown to be very effective in reducing pain and increasing grip strength. Chiropractic and acupuncture have also provided considerable relief for people with carpal tunnel syndrome. However, the efficacy of alternative therapies remains largely unapproved.
Carpal tunnel surgery usually involves cutting the ligaments around the wrist to reduce the pressure placed on the median nerve. This is an outpatient procedure performed under local sedation and does not require an overnight stay in the hospital. This procedure is used to correct the carpal tunnel and can be done using two methods - open surgery and endoscopic surgery. Open surgery is a traditional procedure that requires a 2-inch incision to widen the tunnel, while endoscopic surgery requires two approximately half-inch incisions in the wrist and palm - one for inserting the camera and the other Used to cut wrist ligaments. Endoscopic surgery ensures faster recovery and less postoperative discomfort.
