Numbness, Tingling, Pain in Hand?
These symptoms can be signs of bigger issues.
East Ohio Orthopaedics offers relief from Carpal Tunnel Syndrome and a wide range of hand and wrist issues.
Sudden feelings of numbness, tingling, or a "shock-like" jolt in your fingers that moves up your arm can be more than a temporary annoyance. They also can be signs of carpal tunnel syndrome.
Carpal tunnel syndrome occurs when the tissues surrounding the tendons in the wrist swell and put pressure on the median nerve. This swelling narrows the confined space of the carpal tunnel and over time crowds and pressures the nerve in that tunnel. Factors leading to carpal tunnel syndrome include heredity, hand use, hormonal changes in women, age and medical conditions.
Don't Ignore Carpal Tunnel Symptoms
Many people don’t realize they have a long-term problem and believe it will just go away on its own. If you experience any of the symptoms of carpal tunnel, it’s important to get to an orthopaedic surgeon as early as possible.
For many people, carpal tunnel syndrome gradually will worsen without some form of treatment, whether it’s surgical or non-surgical. But the upside is that treatment and modifications to the uses of the hand can reduce or even eliminate the pain and other symptoms.
The East Ohio Orthopaedics Approach to Carpal Tunnel Syndrome Treatment
A ‘one-size-fits-all’ approach does not work for patients with carpel tunnel syndrome because each patient is different and has unique circumstances, symptoms and needs.
In most cases of carpal tunnel syndrome, there is no single cause. The surgeons at East Ohio Orthopaedics will spend the time needed to determine exactly what is going on with the patient to quickly and effectively treat the problem to help reduce the pain.
In addition to treatment of carpel tunnel syndrome, the EOO doctors and staff members provide comprehensive evaluation, management and treatment for a wide range of hand and wrist issues such as:
- Ganglion Cysts
- Trigger Finger
- Mallet Finger
- Skier's Thumb
- Wrist Sprains
