Right about this time of year you may be experiencing something called Cabin Fever. Cabin Fever is defined by Dictionary.com as “a state characterized by anxiety, restlessness, and boredom, arising from a prolonged stay in a remote or confined space.”
Carpal tunnel syndrome is numbness, tingling and weakness in the hand because of pressure put upon the median nerve within the wrist. This nerve runs from the forearm to the hand through a small space in the wrist called the "carpal tunnel". When there is pressure on the nerve running through the small opening, carpal tunnel syndrome can result. The pressure can come from swelling or anything that makes the opening shrink in size.
At Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians, we offer patients treatment for carpal tunnel syndrome. This condition can be extremely painful, and it can also have a negative impact on professions that require the use of the hands and wrists (as in typing) or in sporting activities such as tennis and golf.
