Kayal Orthopaedic Center’s elite team has the answers
Franklin Lakes, NJ -- (SBWIRE) -- 04/08/2019 -- Recognizing the symptoms of carpal tunnel syndrome is the first step toward solving the problem and relieving the pain. Symptoms include: tingling, numbness, weakness and pain that start in the fingers and wrist and travel up the arm into the shoulder. It also can lead to dropping items and experiencing problems completing delicate tasks with the fingers, such as buttoning a shirt.
Carpal tunnel syndrome occurs when the median nerve—which provides feeling to the thumb, index, middle and ring fingers—is compressed by swelling or narrowing of the carpal tunnel. If it is diagnosed quickly, it often can be resolved with nonsurgical procedures. However, sometimes it requires hand and wrist surgery in Westwood, NJ, or at one of Kayal Orthopaedic Center's other convenient locations in Bergen County.
The specialists at Kayal Orthopaedic Center are experts when it comes to diagnosing and treating carpal tunnel syndrome. They have the specialized training, extensive experience and unique skills that make them the best choice for addressing this problem or any orthopaedic challenge.
Who Is at Greater Risk?
Because women's carpal tunnels tend to be smaller, they are at greater risk for this syndrome. Pregnant and menopausal women are particularly susceptible due to fluid retention. Carpal tunnel syndrome also occurs more frequently in the elderly, obese and those with diabetes, arthritis and thyroid problems. It can be caused by repetitive motion of the wrist and hand (often during work or athletics), trauma or injury, fluid retention, a cyst or tumor, heredity and mechanical problems with the wrist.
Carpal tunnel syndrome will get worse when it is left untreated. Nonsurgical treatments include: wrist splinting, modifying or changing activity, nerve gliding exercises, nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) and corticosteroids.
When surgery is necessary, the compassionate surgeons at Kayal Orthopaedic Center will explain every step and answer every question.
There are two types of surgery for carpal tunnel syndrome: open and endoscopic. During an open surgery, the size of the carpal tunnel is increased. With endoscopic surgery, which involves smaller incisions and less scarring, ligaments are cut. The goal of both is the same: to relieve pressure on the median nerve. The surgeon will recommend the procedure that makes the most sense based on the patient's unique circumstances.
