Hand Therapy: Wrist and hand pain and weakness can have several causes. At your age carpal tunnel syndrome is unusual and not my first thought if you have hand weakness. If you don't have any numbness or tingling in your fingers, just pain, you probably don't have carpal tunnel. Other causes of hand pain at your age include possible ligament injuries, joint laxity, inflammatory arthritis. Get it checked out. ...Read more

Carpal Tunnel Syndrome (Definition)

The carpal tunnel is formed by the bones, tissues, and ligaments of the wrist. This tunnel exists to protect the median nerve, which controls sensations and movement to the thumb and fingers (not including the little finger). Carpal tunnel syndrome is when the carpal tunnel is inflamed and swollen, which pinches the median nerve and results in feelings of numbness, decreased grip strength, and muscle ...Read more

What do I do to get relief from carpal tunnel syndrome?

What do I do to get relief from carpal tunnel syndrome?

Carpal Tunnel : There is a genetic component that is what it is. Beyond that, take car of your hand. Make a paradigm shift: think about yourself like an athlete. No matter what the sport, even highly trained athletes don't just get to the ball park and start to play. They warm up, they stretch, they take breaks as needed. And none are playing for as long as a typical worker works each day i.E 8 hrs or more. ...Read more

These are available at most drug stores, usually for around $20. Anti-inflammatory medications (e.g. Aspirin, ibuprofen, or naproxen) can also be used for pain relief. ...Read more

Does it happen that people get relief from carpal tunnel syndrome by massage therapy?

Does it happen that people get relief from carpal tunnel syndrome by massage therapy?

Sometimes: Carpal tunnel happens in individuals who are predisposed to having excessive pressure on their median nerves at the wrist by virtue of their wrist anatomy i.E smaller or larger carpal tunnel, sensitive nerve. On top of that predisposition, overuse of the wrist and specifically flexing/extension will bring on symptoms. While massage may presumably "loosen" up the tightness, the relief may be short. ...Read more

Does pain in my left hand between my thumb and pointer fingers mean I have carpal tunnel? I tried a hand brace but no relief!

Does pain in my left hand between my thumb and pointer fingers mean I have carpal tunnel? I tried a hand brace but no relief!

Arthritis: Pain between the thumb and index finger is most commonly from a joint called the basal joint also known as the first carpometacarpal joint. Depending upon your age it can be either a loose joint or possibly arthritis. I would have you see a hand surgeon to get x-rays and a full evaluation. ...Read more

I have chiari malformation. Decompressed 2012, CSF leak surgery 2012, vp shunt 2013. Carpal tunnel result of chiari? Only small relief after surgeries

I have chiari malformation. Decompressed 2012, CSF leak surgery 2012, vp shunt 2013. Carpal tunnel result of chiari? Only small relief after surgeries

No relationship: Compression of the median nerve at the carpal tunnel has no relationship to the chiari malformation. Patients with chiari i malformation may have syringomyelia, which can cause neck and arm symptoms. However, carpal tunnel syndrome is very specific to the nerve at the wrist. Your neurosurgeon can help distinguish between the two conditions, and explain why you still have symptoms. ...Read more

Pain Relief (Definition)

A recent study showed that in a hospitalized group of patients it was not the actual degree of pain relief that determined patient satisfaction. It was the perceived concern on the part of the heath care providers and their attempts to alleviate the degree of pain that mattered. Even ...Read more
