Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
The main symptoms are tingling, burning hand pain in the affected hand ( in the thumb, index finger, middle finger).
It can results in numbness and figer weakness that is accompanied by relatively severe pain.
Loss of dexterity occurs and the forearm muscles lose strength and weaken gradually.
Symptoms typically start in repose, mostly during the night. A twinge in wrist can be recognized in shoulder joint and head. Swelling and wrist stiffness also occur. Patients can perceive swollen fingers, even if the swelling is not visible. Intensity and inconvenience can vary, however symptoms deteriorate gradually.
Conservative treatment of carpal tunnel syndrome
Initially, patients avoid overloading wrist muscles. It is important to change lifestyle and habits, avoid monotonous movements, do exercise regularly to stretch the wrists. Hand immobilization using splint, brace or removable cast supplies are often prescribed, typically at night. This eliminates most of the adverse effects affecting on the nerve, having better conditions for regeneration. Various medications, of course, are prescribed to ease unpleasant pain, typically anti-inflammatory drugs with analgesic action and muscle spasm release agents.
Cold compress also ease inconvenience, hastening healing process.
