What Causes My Hand/Wrist Pain?
There is more than just one possible cause when it comes to hand/wrist discomfort, but Carpal Tunnel Syndrome is quite common. Carpal Tunnel Syndrome is caused by a compression of the median nerve within the carpal tunnel of the wrist. With excess pressure placed on the wrist, many individuals may feel pain, tingling, and in some cases even numbness. However, this does not affect the entire hand/wrist. The thumb, index finger, and either the middle or ring finger will most likely be symptomatic. The licensed physical therapists at AmeriCare have experience in the treatment of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome and stand ready to help meet each patient’s personal needs.
Once the issue has been properly identified, the next step is to immediately reduce all activities that cause repeated pressure on your wrist along with icing it to reduce flare-ups. Surgical procedures are available and may relieve discomfort. Our goals for Carpal Tunnel Syndrome treatment include:
Decrease Risk of Recurrence
Improve Muscle Strength and Power
Decrease Nerve Compression
Increase Oxygen to Tissues
Improve Range of Motion
Self-care of Symptoms
Improve Tolerance for Prolonged Activities
Our treatment goals are meant to avoid extra strenuous tasks that may cause further issues, utilize physical therapy to regain muscle independence, and deep consideration of surgical procedures.
