Carpal tunnel syndrome treatment is available at Raleigh Hand Center. Carpal tunnel syndrome is the most common compression neuropathy (pinched nerve) in the hand and arm. It results from increased pressure on the median nerve at the wrist, within the carpal tunnel. Symptoms such as numbness, tingling, weakness, and pain can result if the nerve is compressed or “pinched.” Common treatments include wearing a wrist brace at night, avoiding prolonged wrist flexion postures, stretching exercises with therapy, and cortisone injections. Surgery is recommended if the symptoms do not improve with conservative treatment or if nerve compression is severe. Raleigh Hand Center physicians are specialists in treating hand and arm conditions including carpal tunnel syndrome. Watch video below by the American Society for Surgery of the Hand.
