Carpal tunnel syndrome is a common wrist injury that has become more and more recognized and treatable. The condition causes pain, a numb feeling in your hand to your fingers and tingling that sometimes travels down your arm. Carpal tunnel syndrome occurs when the median nerve on the back of your hand gets compressed or squeezed.
It’s important to get a firm diagnosis in Midtown Manhattan by your sports and pain management team of doctors. Without swift treatment for carpal tunnel syndrome, the condition gets worse. One outcome from untreated carpal tunnel is permanent nerve damage.
The tiny passageway inside the back of your hand is called the carpal tunnel. It’s the space through which your flexor tendons and median nerve travel through. It’s about an inch in diameter. Because it’s such a vital protector, the walls of the tunnel are relatively rigid and not easily stretched or enlarged.
