People that write or type all day long for their job may complain that they’re experiencing pain in their hands and wrists, but true carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS) can leave you unable to do even the slightest task. At Spine & Joint Solutions, we’ve provided numerous rounds of carpal tunnel treatment in Colorado Springs, and can help diagnose your condition if you’ve found that the pain just won’t subside. If you’re experiencing numbness in either hand, or pain that leaves you unable to work, we want to help you right away.
The carpal tunnel is the channel where tendons, a vein, an artery, and the median nerve pass through, and when it’s normal, there’s enough room for everything. After forceful motion or repetitive work, the tendons can become inflamed, decreasing the space inside the channel and increasing the pressure on the median nerve. Carpal tunnel syndrome usually starts gradually, but will of course intensify the more you use your hands and wrists. Certain people may also have a smaller carpal tunnel, leaving them more prone to CTS.
Our carpal tunnel treatment in Colorado Springs is designed to bring relief to the affected area, and there are several remedies for CTS. Oral or topical medications can help decrease the swelling, or wrist braces and splints may also be the best option. A combination of both could be the key to alleviating your CTS and when you visit us, we’ll help you decide which course of action is best. Come see us today and take charge over your pain.
