Carpal Tunnel Syndrome


Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

Before you can really understand what carpal tunnel syndrome is, it helps to know what the carpal tunnel is. The carpal tunnel is a narrow pathway through the inside of the wrist bones that allows tendons and nerves to travel from the forearm, through the wrist and into the hand. 

Carpal tunnel syndrome occurs when these tendons and tissues in the wrist swell up and put pressure on the median nerve that travels through the hand to the fingers, This causes pain as well as numbness and tingling in the hand, and in some cases, sensations can be felt from the fingers all the way up to the shoulder. Hand usage, age, and heredity can all be factors that contribute to carpal tunnel syndrome.

If you're experiencing these symptoms and are looking for relief, it's important to see a doctor so that treatment can be prescribed, Give our Express urgent care clinic a call today to set up an appointment, and we can get you in front of our doctors as soon as possible. 

For more information about carpal tunnel syndrome, check out this informational resource provided by the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons.
