CARPAL TUNNEL SYNDROME
What is Carpal Tunnel Syndrome?
Carpal Tunnel Syndrome is a condition in your wrist that results in pain, numbness, tingling and progressive weakness in your hand. The carpal tunnel is a region in the wrist through which multiple tendons and your median nerve travel. If the tunnel gets tight, then the nerve can get pinched resulting in symptoms. If left untreated this can lead to permanent weakness in your hand.
How do we treat Carpal Tunnel Syndrome?
We offer both cutting edge non surgical measures like hydrodissection and standard conservative measures including bracing, activity modification, medications and steroid injections.
What is a Median Nerve Hydrodissection?
This non surgical procedure is performed under direct ultrasound guidance and involves identifying the median nerve in the carpal tunnel and opening up space around it by injecting a large volume of salt water and anesthetic above and below the nerve thereby reducing compression of the nerve.
If you have Carpal Tunnel Syndrome and want to know if you are a candidate for Hydrodissection or Biologic treatments book a Teleconsult with Dr Esser by clicking HERE.
