Carpal Tunnel

Carpal tunnel syndrome results from pressure on the median nerve. You have a narrow passageway, covered by bones and ligaments on the palm side of your hand, called the carpal tunnel. Numbness, tingling, and weakness can occur in the hands and arms when the median nerve is compressed.

Carpal tunnel syndrome is caused by the anatomy of your wrist, health problems, and possibly repetitive hand motions. Fortunately, patients can receive carpal tunnel treatment without surgery.

Symptoms of carpal tunnel syndrome usually develop gradually and include:

  • Numbness or tingling. A tingling sensation or numbness may be felt in your fingers or hand. The thumb, index, middle and ring fingers are usually affected, but not your little finger. In these fingers, you might feel a sensation similar to an electric shock.

The sensation may travel up your arm from your wrist. You may feel these symptoms while holding a steering wheel, phone, or book, or they may wake you up from sleep.

As time goes on, the numb feeling may become constant.

  • Lack of strength. Your hands may become weak, and you might drop objects. Your thumb’s pinching muscles, controlled by the median nerve, may feel weak due to numbness in your hand.

Carpal tunnel syndrome occurs when there is pressure on the median nerve.

Your median nerve travels from your forearm to your hand through your carpal tunnel and provides sensation to your thumb and fingers, except the little finger. It also provides nerve signals to move the muscles around the base of your thumb.

Carpal tunnel syndrome is caused by anything that squeezes or irritates the median nerve in the carpal tunnel space. A wrist fracture, as well as swelling and inflammation caused by rheumatoid arthritis, can narrow the carpal tunnel and irritate the nerve.

It is common for carpal tunnel syndrome to be caused by a combination of factors.

Carpal tunnel syndrome has been associated with numerous factors. Carpal tunnel syndrome is not directly caused by them, but they can cause irritation and damage to the median nerve. Some examples are:

  • Anatomy. If the small bones of the hand are deformed by arthritis or fractures, the carpal tunnel space may be altered and the median nerve put under greater pressure.
  • Sex. Women are more likely to suffer from carpal tunnel syndrome than men. Possibly, this is because the carpal tunnel area is smaller in women than in men.
  • Nerve damage. Diabetes and other chronic illnesses can result in nerve damage, including damage to your median nerve.
  • Inflammatory conditions. Various inflammatory conditions such as rheumatoid arthritis can cause your wrist’s tendons to become inflamed and put pressure on your median nerve.
  • Body fluid changes. Fluid retention may irritate your median nerve by increasing pressure in the carpal tunnel. This may occur during pregnancy or during menopause. Pregnancy-related carpal tunnel syndrome typically goes away on its own after childbirth.
  • Medical conditions. Conditions such as menopause, thyroid disease, kidney failure, and lymphedema may increase your risk of developing carpal tunnel syndrome.
  • Occupational factors. Vibrating tools or work on an assembly line that requires repetitive wrist flexion may cause harmful pressure on the median nerve, especially when performed in a cold environment.

Carpal Tunnel Treatment

Looking for a carpal tunnel cure? Acousana therapy is a highly effective, non-invasive approach to treating mild to severe carpal tunnel with success rates over 86%. This treatment is ideal for carpal tunnel relief.

Acousana utilizes patented SoftWave® technology to stimulate your body’s natural healing response by increasing blood flow by up to 300%, quickly reducing inflammation and therefore, getting rid of the pain associated with the condition.

Acousana therapy uses patented electrohydraulic SoftWaves® that are delivered through the skin using ultrasound gel. The SoftWaves trigger a natural biological response which initiates a healing process by increasing blood flow and improving circulation.

The SoftWaves “fool” the body into thinking that “damage” has occurred, when in reality, no damage has taken place. This response initiates your body’s natural self-repair process by reducing inflammation and thereby eliminating pain.
