Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

By 22 March 2012February 20th, 2024No Comments

Carpal Tunnel Syndrome is a condition due to compression of the Median nerve in the wrist. The most common symptoms of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome include pins and needle feeling in the hand often associated with pain in the hand and forearm mostly at night or the early hours of the morning. The symptoms may vary and occur during the day as well. Treatment consists of splinting and/or cortisone injection in mild cases. Surgery is indicated after investigating the patient for medical causes and confirming the diagnosis with nerve conduction studies if the examination does not reveal typical signs. Carpal tunnel release is day case surgery with predictably excellent results if performed before muscle weakness sets in.
