What is the treatment for median nerve entrapment?

Depends on severity!: Carpal tunnel syndrome can be treated with splinting at night, streroid injections, and outpatient surgery. My bias is to get an injection first. I would get nerve conduction studies prior to surgery. Also, the median nerve can be trapped higher up: this is called pronator teres syndrome, and is above the wrist and immeidately below the elbow. Check it out on wikipedia. ...Read more

Ulnar nerve: Sorry you are having trouble with your ulnar nerve. This is a pretty broad question because there are multiple sites where nerves can be entrapped. I would discuss with a physiatrist or an orthopedic surgeon. The ulnar nerve's anatomy is more variable than other nerves which makes the options more complicated. You may require an emg/ncv study before your question can be answered. ...Read more

Try 1st/mayneed surg: One can try Physiotherapy (Physical therapy) first but if you continue to have weakness and numbness then you may require surgical decompression without/with transposition.

What r symptoms of nerve entrapment in hand. What is treatment?  Would it affect a chronic radial artery occlusion? If so how?

Numbness in fingers: Carpal tunnel is the most common nerve entrapment in the hand. It causes numbness in the thumb, index, and middle fingers. This can be treated with splints, injections, or surgery. Radial artery occlusion can cause numbness, but fingers would tend to be cooler and possibly discolored. Get it checked out. ...Read more

What is radio frequency ablation?Can it work for calming inflammation of  irritated ilioinguinal nerve?

Yes: Before an ablation you would normally undergo at least two nerve blocks of the nerve to see if the there is any positive pain reduction. If there is and you meet certain criteria, then ablation could be an option. I would recommend at least two blocks prior to help reduce the change of a placebo effect. Discuss in detail with the doc recommending the procedure. ...Read more
