Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

Carpal Tunnel Syndrome (CTS) is a disorder that is characterized by pain or numbing and tingling sensations, caused by pressure on a nerve in the wrist. Dealing with this painful condition is difficult, and it can affect your quality of life. At HealthQuest, you will receive individualized care and treatment to help manage pain and other carpal tunnel syndrome symptoms.

Carpal Tunnel Syndrome Symptoms

When the median nerve becomes compressed, you are likely to notice symptoms such as:

  • Numbness or tingling in your hands and fingers
  • Pain in your wrist, palm or forearm
  • Trouble in gripping objects
  • Weakness in your thumb

HealthQuest - the Perfect Way to Better Health

The symptoms of carpal tunnel syndrome develop gradually and progress over time. This syndrome is time sensitive and can be treated. If your CTS symptoms persist, we are here to help you. Causes for CTS can vary from work stress, and repeated hand and/or wrist movements, hypothyroidism, rheumatoid arthritis, obesity, diabetes, wrist swelling from a trauma or injury (i.e. sprain or fracture). Whatever the underlying cause may be, the staff at HealthQuest provides the appropriate treatment plan for any individual condition. Through the use of advanced techniques and various effective soft tissue therapies, our doctors can bring about considerable relief from pain and discomfort.

Carpal Tunnel Syndrome Treatment

Options

Our treatment modalities help relieve the pressure on the median nerve and thus remove the associated pain. If the symptoms are due to repetitive hand movements, some lifestyle changes may be required. Often times wrist exercises, resting your hands and wrists regularly are other ways to reduce the risk of carpal tunnel syndrome.

  • Physical therapy
