Carpal Tunnel Treatment at our Florham Park, New Jersey Pain Management Center

s-carpal

Over the last several months, you have been noticing a peculiar pain in your wrists and in part of your hands. You have also noticed that numbness and tingling sensations are present. You start to worry because your forearms and elbows now feel sore, and your neck and shoulders ache. Simple tasks, like typing or opening a jar, are suddenly difficult to do.

If you suffer from these symptoms, it is possible that you have Carpal Tunnel Syndrome (CTS). CTS occurs when the median nerve, a major nerve in the arm and hand, is being compromised. This nerve originates in the neck, passes underneath the collarbone, travels down the length of the arm and into the hand. It is responsible for sensory and muscle function in the thumb, first three fingers and parts of the forearm.

Signs and Symptoms of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

By definition, CTS occurs when the median nerve is compressed as it passes through the carpal tunnel, a small space inside the wrist that also contains the nine flexor tendons of the forearm. The most common source of compression is from inflamed, swollen tendon sheaths (coverings) which can result from repetitive finger-dependent tasks like typing, using a computer mouse, filing, and hard gripping. As the fingers are moved repetitiously, the tendons slide against one another and cause “cumulative trauma” and swelling.

How Total Health Can Help

If you believe that you are developing CTS, call Total Health for a FREE consultation with a doctor who specializes in treating this disorder. If you have already been diagnosed with CTS and have been receiving standard medical treatment without results, call us today for a second opinion. Pressure to the median nerve, if left uncorrected, can lead to long-term nerve damage and loss of function. Don’t compromise the full use of your hands. Call Total Health today at 973.377.6327 for premiere CTS treatment without the need for surgery.
