Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

Carpal tunnel syndrome typically starts gradually with a vague aching
in your wrist that can extend to your handor forearm. Common carpal
tunnel syndrome symptoms include:

Tingling or numbness in your fingers or hand, especially your thumb

and index, middle or ring fingers, but not your little finger. This sensation
often occurs while holding a steering wheel, phone or newspaper or upon
awakening. Many people "shake out" their hands to try to relieve their
symptoms. As the disorder progresses, the numb feeling may become constant.

Pain radiating or extending from your wrist up your arm to your shoulder or
down into your palm or fingers, especially after forceful or repetitive use. This
usually occurs on the palm side of your forearm.

A sense of weakness in your hands and a tendency to drop objects.

If you have persistent signs and symptoms suggestive of carpal tunnel syndrome, especially if they interfere with your normal activities and sleep patterns, do not leave the condition untreated, nerve and muscle damage can occur.

The methods we use at Physicians Health and Injury Center include manipulation of the wrist elbow and upper spine, ultrasound therapy, and wrist supports.  Our patients have seen significant improvements in several measures of strength, range of motion, and decreased pain after receiving treatment.
