Treatment for Carpal Tunnel Syndrome in Sugar Land TX
When the median nerve, which runs from the forearm into the palm of the hand, becomes pressed or squeezed at the wrist, Carpal Tunnel Syndrome occurs. The median nerve controls palm side and thumb and fingers (although not the little finger) feelings. The median nerve also creates impulses to some small muscles in the hand that allow the fingers and thumb to move.
Symptoms of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome are typically gradual, and not immediately recognized or diagnosed.
Gradual symptoms of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome include: frequent burning, tingling, or itching numbness in the palm as well as the fingers.
If you are a sufferer of carpal tunnel, you might think your fingers are inoperable and swollen, even if your symptoms are not apparent. Many people sleep with their wrists flexed so symptoms often become apparent during the night.
