Carpal Tunnel Syndrome refers to a group of symptoms that occur when the median nerve (the nerve that runs from the forearm into the palm of the hand) becomes pressed or squeezed at the wrist. This happens when the tendons inside the Carpal Tunnel become thickened or irritated and press on the median nerve. For many individuals, the pain and other symptoms caused by Carpal Tunnel Syndrome make it difficult to work and perform normal activities. Our treatments are focused on treating the cause of the symptoms, improving functionality and preventing symptoms from occurring in the future. Using the most advanced and minimally invasive treatments possible, we are able to help patients with Carpal Tunnel find relief from their pain and other symptoms so they can return to full function.

Symptoms of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

In most cases, the symptoms of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome start gradually and include a frequent burning, tingling or itching numbness in the palm of the hand and the fingers. Often, the symptoms will first appear at night, since most people sleep with flexed wrists. As the symptoms worsen or if it is left untreated, it can cause pain and decreased grip strength, making it difficult to form a fist or to grasp small objects.

What Causes Carpal Tunnel Syndrome?

What causes Carpal Tunnel Syndrome? In many cases, Carpal Tunnel Syndrome is caused by a combination of factors that increase pressure on the median nerve. In some cases, individuals are simply born with a smaller Carpal Tunnel. Mechanical problems in the wrist joint, fluid retention during pregnancy, trauma or injury to the wrist, Rheumatoid Arthritis and performing repetitive motions with the hand and wrist can also contribute to Carpal Tunnel Syndrome. Regardless of the cause, early diagnosis and treatment is important to avoid permanent damage to the median nerve.

If you are experiencing symptoms and think it may be due to Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, contact our Atlanta Carpal Tunnel Treatment Specialists at Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians today and schedule a consultation with one of our physicians. After a complete evaluation, we can recommend a treatment plan that is tailored specifically to your needs and goals. We look forward to helping you stay active and live your best life!
