Carpal Tunnel Syndrome Carpal Tunnel Syndrome is a common problem that affects the hand and wrist. This condition, or syndrome, has become the focus of attention in the last few years because it may be linked to jobs that require repetitive use of the hands - such as typing, piano playing, and carpentry. The following pages will tell you about Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, how it is diagnosed, and describe the current treatment options available. This material does not constitute medical advice.

Carpal tunnel syndrome is due to compression of the median nerve within a tunnel comprising a "U" shaped collection of bones with a tight ligament at the top. The most common cause is tenosynovitis . The nerve can gradually wither if the condition is not treated. This causes permanent loss of sensation and wasting of thumb muscles, which cannot be completely relieved by surgery. There are a number of ways of treating the condition including activity modification, splinting, anti-inflammatory drugs, steroid injections and surgery. Surgery is recommended if you have had the problem for a long time, your symptoms are severe, non-surgical treatments have failed or if the doctor detects wasting of muscles or loss of sensation in the hand. Surgery involves cutting the ligament over the tunnel to relieve the pressure on the nerve. This can be achieved in two ways.
Open technique A cut is made in the palm and the carpal ligament is reached by cutting through the underlying tissues and muscle. The ligament then is cut under direct vision. Operative series Endoscopic technique The carpal ligament to be reached from a small cut at the wrist. The ligament is seen using a small telescope, which provides a magnified image on a television screen that the surgeon watches whilst performing the surgery. Technical difficulties can occur necessitating conversion to the open technique (6%).

Is it normal to have pain and numbness in my hands during pregnancy? Yes. Pain and numbness in your hands and fingers during pregnancy are quite common and most likely caused by carpal tunnel syndrome. Although you probably associate this condition with workers whose jobs require repetitive hand movements (such as data processors, computer programmers, assembly line workers), about one in four pregnant women develops carpal tunnel symptoms, usually in both hands. Symptoms can appear at any time, but most often begin in the second half of pregnancy as you begin to retain more fluid. The symptoms usually go away gradually after you give birth as the swelling from pregnancy subsides. var ad2=''; document.write(ad2);

Welcome to’s class on Carpal Tunnel Syndrome. Today we will be discussing the anatomical occurrence of carpal tunnel syndrome in the wrists, what we can do to prevent it and treat it. Let’s begin. What is Carpal Tunnel Syndrome Carpal Tunnel Syndrome is a condition that occurs when too much pressure is placed on the median nerve as it passes through the carpal tunnel. The carpal tunnel is a small passageway through which the median nerve, as well as the tendons that operate the thumb and fingers must pass. The location of the carpal tunnel is right at the base of the palm and wrist and it creates a tight fit even in a healthy structure. Sometimes, through repetitive and improper use of the hand and wrist, the tendons can become inflamed. When the tendons swell within the tight carpal tunnel, there is no longer enough room for everything to fit comfortably and this places pressure on the median nerve. This pressure creates tingling and loss of feeling in the hand. It can also inhibit your ability to pinch you thumb to your fingers.

of Brooklyn and Staten Island "Failure is not an option" What the Patient Feels
C arpal tunnel syndrome is the most common cause of numbness, tingling and pain in the hand. Typically, they occur in the thumb, index and long fingers. They occur off and on in the beginning but as time passes, they become constant. The symptoms are aggravated at night as the wrist tends to assume bent position in sleep. Keeping the wrist in a straight position with a splint or a brace relieves the symptoms. Very often, but not always, the pain radiates to the elbow, shoulder or the neck. The pain may be sharp, dull, burning, hot or cold. Often the patient says that the hand and fingers feel swollen, tight, like sand paper or like feeling the finger through gloves. As the patient starts to lose sensation, things start falling out of the hand. THE HAND IS NOW IN TROUBLE! What the Doctor Does
T he diagnosis is established in most cases with a simple examination of the hand. Making a tight fist for one minute reproduces numbness, tingling or pain. Bending the wrist fully for one minute also reproduces the above symptoms. Finally manual pressure on the nerve at the wrist crease reproduces the symptoms. Numbness and tingling can be caused by pressure on the nerve along the nerve from the neck to the finger tips. The pressure is usually caused by a tight band of tissue called a ligament. The location of nerve pinching can be confirmed with an office test called nerve conduction test. It measures the speed at which the electricity flows in the nerve. It takes about ten minutes to do. No needles are used when the test is done with the modern machines.

Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
What is Carpal Tunnel Syndrome Carpal tunnel syndrome begins with numbness and tingling in the hand and may involve aching in the hand, forearm or shoulder. It is a very common condition that is caused by a pinched nerve in the palm of the hand. The symptoms may occur intermittently during the daytime and sometimes occur at night and awaken one from sleep. It is not uncommon for the sufferer to think that the hands have "poor circulation" and shake the hands in an attempt to "restore circulation" What causes CTS? Repetitive motions typically cause carpal tunnel syndrome. Any activity that involves grasping, squeezing or clipping motions such as using a computer, using tools, knitting or playing the piano. Can I wait until it gets worse? Maybe it sill just go away. Doing nothing can possibly lead to irreversible damage. If you have CTS, the nerve that provides sensation to the hand and function to the thumb is being "pinched." After remaining in the pinched stage for a period of time, permanent injury to the nerve will result. There is no treatment that can fully restore hand function and sensation once permanent damage is sustained. Is surgery always necessary?

Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
Carpal Tunnel Syndrome occurs when the median nerve which runs through the wrist to the hand becomes compressed. The problem involves the narrow bony passage in the wrist called the carpal tunnel, through which nine tendons and the median nerve must pass between the arm and hand. In the wrist, the median nerve (the major "communication line" between the brain and the hand) is routed through a small passage bounded by the wrist bones (the carpals) and the tough ligament tissue connecting them (see diagram). Nine hard tendons also pass through this crowded "carpal tunnel". Because this structure is rigid, any influence that causes tissue swelling within the tunnel or reduces its size tends to compress and pinch the median nerve.
  • Numbness and tingling sensation in one or both hands. Frequently accompanied by sharp pains radiating through the arm or shoulder. Muscle weakness of index and middle fingers and thumb. Discomfort / aching in one or both hands. Lack of feeling in hand may cause person to drop objects.

    Office Ergonomics Training This site contains office ergonomics information aimed at ergonomics committee members as well as office workers in general. The information here is based on the research literature whenever possible; it may not be consistent with some of the conventional wisdom that has persisted for decades, such as "sit up straight" or "have the monitor at eye level" or "the keyboard should be at elbow height." Office ergonomics deserves to be treated separately from general (industrial) ergonomics. The principles are the same, but there are so many subtle differences and different products that it's best to specialize. This site collects and publishes some "handouts" that have been used widely in training courses for office workers and ergonomists and health care professionals who work with office workers. The handouts have received good reviews with respect to their clarity, objectivity, and scientific basis. Some have been published in slightly different form in book chapters and manuals. We are pleased to share them with you. This site was developed by Chris Grant, PhD, now retired from ergonomics. Her Michigan-based ergonomics practice, F-One Ergonomics, was limited to office-related issues. Dr. Grant and other cited authors on the site are Certified Professional Ergonomists and Certified Industrial Ergonomists who have consulted in this field for years and have been involved in the development of national and international ergonomics standards. Dr. Grant has generously transferred the site to Dennis Ankrum, who will strive to maintain the standard of excellence she has set.

August, 2005 Carpal tunnel syndrome is a common problem that affects the use of your hand, and is caused by compression of the median nerve at the wrist. It most often occurs when the median nerve in the wrist becomes inflamed after being aggravated by repetitive movements such as typing on a computer keyboard or playing the piano. It also seems to affect professional artists fairly commonly – in particular, sculptors and printmakers. The "carpal tunnel" is formed by the bones, tendons and ligaments that surround the median nerve. Since the median nerve supplies sensation to the thumb, index and middle finger, and part of the ring finger, and provides motion to the muscles of the thumb and hand, you might notice numbness and weakness in these areas. Common Symptoms
    • Hand and wrist pain
    • A burning sensation in the middle and index fingers
    • Thumb and finger numbness
    • An electric-like shock through the wrist and hand
    These symptoms are often exaggerated when the wrist is bent forward. This numbness or pain may be worse at night, and may actually keep you awake. During the day, it may occur more often when you are participating in activities that involve bending of your wrist.

    Carpal tunnel syndrome
    Definition: Carpal tunnel syndrome is compression of the median nerve at the wrist, which may result in numbness, tingling, weakness, or muscle atrophy in the hand and fingers.
    Alternative Names: Median nerve dysfunction
    Causes, incidence, and risk factors: Carpal tunnel syndrome is common in people who perform repetitive motions of the hand and wrist, such as typing. When the wrist is poorly positioned, there isn't enough space for the median nerve to travel to the hand. Carpal tunnel syndrome is caused by pressure exerted on the median nerve at the point where it passes through the wrist. The median nerve supplies sensation to the thumb-side of the palm, and to the thumb, index finger, middle finger, and the thumb-side of the ring finger. It also supplies movement to part of the hand.

    One in five with symptoms may have carpal tunnel syndrome
    July 13, 1999 Web posted at: 4:04 p.m. EDT (2004 GMT) (CNN) Carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS) symptoms like wrist pain are common in the general public, but new research shows one in five persons with symptoms may actually suffer from CTS, according to an article in this week's Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA). Researchers based their findings on a February 1997 mail survey of randomly selected persons in southern Sweden, along with follow-up examinations and nerve testing. CTS is a repetitive motion injury caused by the compression of the median nerve in the wrist. This nerve supplies sensation to the thumb side of the palm and to the thumb, the index finger, the middle finger and the thumb side of the ring finger.
