The carpal tunnel is a narrow passage on the palm side of the hand, surrounded by bones and ligaments. Inside that tunnel is a nerve called the median nerve. When the median nerve is compressed, carpal tunnel syndrome causes a tingling sensation and weakness, making the hand and arm numb. Repetitive hand motions, wrist anatomy, and some health conditions can also lead to this syndrome. This condition is treatable, and normal function of the hand can be regained with treatment.

Symptoms of Carpal Tunnel

Symptoms of carpal tunnel syndrome include:

  • Reduced strength: The pressure on the median nerve may cause weakness in the hand, making it difficult to hold objects.
  • Tingling sensation: Except for the little finger, all other fingers may feel electric shock-like feelings, which can travel upwards from the wrist to the elbow.

Causes and Risk Factors

It can be difficult to identify what led to a pressurized median nerve. Some likely causes are:

Those at high risk for developing getting carpal tunnel syndrome include:

  • Women
  • A family history of carpal tunnel syndrome
  • Professionals include assembly line workers, sewers, bakers, musicians, etc.
  • Those who have a fracture or a dislocated wrist

How to treat carpal tunnel syndrome?

Depending upon the symptoms and the condition of the wrist, your doctor might advise the following:

  1. Change in lifestyle: If pain is because of a specific repetitive motion, taking frequent breaks and resting the wrist may help.
  2. Exercises: Stretching and nerve gliding exercises can help with better and smoother movement of the nerve.
  3. Immobilization: To prevent the condition from worsening, your doctor might advise you not to stabilize your wrist with a wrist brace.
  4. Medication: Your doctor may prescribe medication to reduce swelling.
  5. Surgery: If none of the above-mentioned treatments work, your doctor recommends surgery to increase the size of the tunnel, which will relieve tension on the nerve 

If the condition is caught early, wearing a wrist brace would relieve pain by keeping the wrist straight and reducing pressure on the nerve. HPFY carries a wide range of braces for carpal tunnel.
