Relief for Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

At The Hand Center of Danbury Orthopedics

Symptoms of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome can range from moderate tingling to painful sensations in the hand and thumb, or wrist and forearm. If you are experiencing these types of symptoms, it's time to see a specialist at The Hand Center at Danbury Orthopedics.

What is Carpal Tunnel Syndrome?

Carpal Tunnel Syndrome is caused by excessive pressure on the median nerve in the wrist. This compression leads to numbness and tingling in the thumb and fingers. Pain in the wrist may also occur and can radiate up the forearm. In severe cases, thumb muscles may weaken and shrink.

What are the treatments?

Depending on the condition, carpal tunnel syndrome can be treated with anti-inflammatory medications, injections, physical therapy or surgery. Carpal tunnel release is a surgical procedure that reduces the pressure on the median nerve.
