Carpel Tunnel Syndrome

Carpel Tunnel Syndrome (CTS) is an irritating and painful condition in which the nerve that travels into your hand gets suffocated by the structures surrounding it. Take special note; unlike what you have been told, it's not the nerve that gets inflamed, it's the tendons and joints near it. Most sufferers complain of tingling, numbness, and weakness of their thumb, index, and middle finger. The treatment of this condition involves diagnosing the exact structures suffocating the nerve and applying various physiotherapy techniques to restore normal carpel tunnel dimensions. Drugs and surgery have historically been the treatment protocol for this condition, but they should be considered an indirect and last resort. We at North Decatur Health Care can properly evaluate and treat this condition. If the condition is beyond our scope of practice we will refer you to the appropriate provider.
