Learn How Carpal Tunnel Syndrome Is Diagnosed!
Carpal tunnel syndrome is a condition in which compression of a nerve in the wrist—the median nerve—produces tingling, numbness, weakness, and pain in the hand and fingers. Early diagnosis is key to preventing permanent nerve damage and typically involves a physical examination, functional tests, and nerve conduction tests.
Treatment for carpal tunnel syndrome ranges from conservative approaches such as activity modification, nerve gliding exercises, icing, splints, and pain medication and cortisone injections. Some people find relief from yoga or acupuncture, but severe symptoms may require surgery.
