Carpal tunnel syndrome can present with many different symptoms. The carpal tunnel is the passageway through the wrist that carries the tendons and one of the major nerves to the hand. Pressure can build up within the tunnel due to diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis, injury, fluid retention during pregnancy, overuse or repetitive motions. This is often followed by numbness, aching, impaired hand function and the daily nuisance of hand pain. If splinting and anit-inflammatory medications have not relieved the problem, your next step may be sugery. Surgery is not something to shy away from. In most cases, you’re back to work in just a few days. Treating your problem early may save your nerve from permanent damage. Dr. Fugo has extensive training in hand sugery. He can help diagnose and treat your hand concerns.
