Have you ever heard frequent complaints from your loved ones, friends or colleagues regarding pain, numbness and weakness in the hand? Have you come across someone who is squeezing their hands frequently after doing work which involves lifting or typing? If you have noticed these symptoms in someone else or yourself chances are you might be suffering from a medical condition called ‘Carpal Tunnel Syndrome.’ Carpal tunnel syndrome treatment is very important because it is directly affecting the joints and nerves in the fingers which can disrupt one from doing daily activities.
Carpal Tunnel (Carpal Canal): It is a narrow passageway on the palmar side of the wrist or the side on which the nails are not seen. It is made up of bones and connective tissue. The Median nerve and many tendons pass through the carpal canal. 9 of the flexor tendons, muscles whose contraction bends a joint, pass through the Carpal Tunnel. When one or more of these tendons swell or degenerate the canal gets even narrower. This results in the Median nerve getting compressed or entrapped as a result of the swelling of the tendons. This is what causes Carpal Tunnel Syndrome. One can often find office workers, drivers complain about symptoms and this syndrome is usually associated with repetitive activities such as typing, lifting etc. because of the nerves in the tunnel run through the neck and arms before they reach the wrist. This is why tension in the neck and shoulders can further aggravate the condition. Some predisposing factors like pregnancy, hypothyroidism diabetics, and heavy manual work or work using vibrating tools may also cause and further exacerbate these symptoms.
The main symptoms of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome are:
- Warm forearms and cold hands.
- Weakness in fingers and joints
- Poor blood circulation, Hands falling asleep.
- Pain in the hands or wrists.
- Loss of grip and general strength from fingers.
- Numbness, tingling, or burning sensations in the thumb and fingers.
How to Diagnose:
Before Carpal tunnel syndrome treatment one needs to know how to diagnose the symptoms. The syndrome can be diagnosed based on the symptoms and the distribution of the hand numbness, pain, nocturnal symptoms, thenar muscle wasting, etc. One can examine the wrist for any form of swelling, warmth, tenderness, deformity, etc. One can even examine the neck, shoulder, pulse, etc to exclude other conditions. The major diagnostic key is to see if the numbness in the finger does not include the little finger because the median nerve does not provide sensation to this finger. Test the strength of the muscles of the hand, thumb, fingers and each finger should be tested for sensation. The muscles at the base of the hand should be examined for strength and signs of atrophy.
The major causes of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome are:
- Overuse of hand and forearm
- Rheumatoid arthritis
- Autoimmune Diseases
