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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Entrapment of the median nerve at the wrist is how we describe carpal tunnel. There are 8 carpal bones, but the hamate and pisiform form the ulnar side. The trapezium and scaphoid for the radial side. Flex the 3rd digit and look at the palmar hand side. The long flexor's tendon will be visible, the median n is just to its thumb side.

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!

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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer
My son has carpal tunnel syndrome any daily exercise for relief and cure? Also will it work if he uses the keyboard a lot and exercise it.
Wrist splint, NSAIDs: Provided the source of your problem is carpal tunnel syndrome (which is diagnosed definitively by nerve conduction testing), the first step in treatment is to wear a carpal tunnel wrist splint while you sleep. 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 moreSee 2 more doctor answers
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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer

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
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
