What is carpal tunnel syndrome?

Carpal tunnel syndrome, also known as median nerve compression, is a condition which affects the hand. The median nerve is located on the palm side of your hand which is also known as the carpal tunnel. The median nerve is responsible for providing sensation to the thumb, the index finger, and parts of the ring finger. The nerve is responsible for the muscle going to the thumb. Carpal tunnel syndrome is usually accompanied by sensations of pain, tingling, burning or swelling in the palm of the hands and may extend to the first three fingers of the hand and the thumb.

If you have signs of carpal tunnel syndrome, better not avoid the condition and visit an expert orthopedic doctor for carpal tunnel treatment in Bangalore.

Treatment

Diagnosis

Before a doctor can recommend the treatment for carpal tunnel syndrome, he or she will perform a thorough diagnosis to evaluate the condition through the patient’s medical history, a physical examination and often diagnostic tests. The doctor will ask you about your symptoms and ask about the severity of these symptoms and how much they affect your daily living. A carpal tunnel syndrome doctor in Bangalore can diagnose carpal tunnel syndrome by doing a physical examination and tests called nerve conduction studies to examine and assess sensation, strength and reflexes of the hand and wrist.

The doctor may also ask you to have diagnostic tests including:

  • X-ray to look at the bones of the wrist in order to determine if there are any abnormalities that may contribute to carpal tunnel syndrome.
  • Ultrasound to evaluate the median nerve and look for any mass lesions which may be present in the carpal tunnel.
  • Electromyogram and Nerve Conduction Study (EMG and NCS) to show how the muscles and nerves are working together.

Surgery

If you are experiencing persistent symptoms of carpal tunnel syndrome, it is important to get medical assistance. If you do not get treatment for carpal tunnel, it would not be long before the pain becomes intolerable.

To relieve the symptoms of carpal tunnel syndrome, the doctor conducts a surgery called Carpal tunnel release surgery. During a carpal tunnel surgery in Bangalore, the carpal tunnel syndrome doctor will cut through the ligament that is pressing down on the carpal tunnel. This makes more room for the median nerve and tendons passing through the tunnel, and usually improves pain and function.

"The prevalence of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome is 2.7% to 5.8% in general population. In Inida alone, there are several people suffering from Carpel Tunnel Syndrome and most of them kleep delaying their treatment because of some misconceptions. But the truth is, most of the cases can be treated with the help of medications, surgery and physiotherapy.

Clinical trials and research do not support the effectiveness of homeopathic medicine for carpal tunnel syndrome.

Is ayurvedic treatment for carpal tunnel syndrome effective?

As discussed previously, CTS being a progressive condition requires prompt treatment, based on how severe the condition and symptoms are. Patients with mild symptoms can find short-term relief from ayurvedic treatment for CTS. However, patients with severe carpal tunnel syndrome need a more medically advanced treatment approach, which may include use of steroid injections, wearing a wrist brace, or surgery (when no other treatment can help).

How long is the carpal tunnel surgery incision?

Where would I feel carpal tunnel pain?

Carpal tunnel syndrome affects the hand and wrist. Carpal tunnel pain is usually felt worse in the thumb, index and middle fingers. Severe CTS can cause pain in the whole hand. The patient may also have pain running up the arm to the shoulder and neck. In some cases, CTS can affect both hands, which can cause symptoms and pain in both the hands.

What is a carpal tunnel?

The carpal tunnel is a narrow passageway in the wrist and hand that protects the median nerve and other tendons. Carpal tunnel is often the source of carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS), which is caused by repetitive strain injury. The carpal tunnel contains the median nerve and tendons of the flexor digitorum profundus, flexor digitorum superficialis, and flexor pollicis longus. Injury to the carpal tunnel can cause pain, tingling, and weakness in the wrist and hand and may limit or reduce the functional use of the upper extremity.

What are the most common causes of carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS)?

Carpal tunnel syndrome is caused by compression of the median nerve. Pregnant women and people with conditions like diabetes, osteoporosis, rheumatoid arthritis, underactive thyroid, and certain forms of amyloidosis are at increased risk of developing CTS.

People who indulge in repetitive forceful movements involving the wrist and people who use computer keyboards with improper positioning of the hand are also at a risk of CTS. Prolonged exposure to vibrations (such as by using some power tools) is also believed to cause carpal tunnel syndrome. However, in some cases, the cause of CTS cannot be determined.

When can I drive after carpal tunnel surgery?

Driving is not recommended for about 1 to 2 weeks after carpal tunnel surgery.

What is the goal of carpal tunnel surgery?

To relieve the symptoms of carpal tunnel syndrome, an orthopedic doctor performs a surgery. The goal of carpal tunnel surgery is to reduce pain, swelling and pressure on the median nerve. This surgery is performed in a hospital operating room under the influence of general or local anaesthesia on an outpatient basis.

Carpal Tunnel Syndrome Surgery

The surgical treatment for carpal tunnel syndrome is known as carpal tunnel release. A carpal tunnel release surgery can be performed under two different techniques. Both aim at relieving the pressure on the median nerve by increasing the size of the carpal tunnel, by severing the ligament that forms the roof of the tunnel. The two techniques of carpal tunnel release surgery are:

  • Open carpal tunnel release surgery: A small incision is made in the palm of your hand to view the inside of the wrist. During the procedure, your doctor will cut the transverse carpal ligament to increase the size of the tunnel and relieve the pressure on the median nerve.
  • Endoscopic carpal tunnel release surgery: Endoscopic carpal tunnel release surgery involves a smaller insertion and uses a miniature camera to see the inside of the hand and wrist. A special instrument is used to sever a part of the carpal ligament which reduces the pressure on the median nerve.

Carpal Tunnel Surgery- Endoscopic vs Open Surgery

  • Incision size- Size of open carpal tunnel surgery incision is usually 3 to 4 cm.
  • Endoscopic carpal tunnel incision size is approximately 1 cm, which is much smaller.
  • Blood loss- Due to the smaller incisions, there is minimal blood loss in case of endoscopic carpal tunnel surgery.
  • Recovery Period- Recovery period after endoscopic carpal tunnel release is much smaller as compared to open surgery.
  • Risks and complications- Risk of infection, complications, hand pain and scar tenderness is higher following an open surgery as compared to endoscopic surgery.

How is endoscopic carpal tunnel surgery performed?

Endoscopic carpal tunnel surgery is performed in the hospital under the influence of anesthesia. An endoscope is inserted through one incision. The endoscope has a camera on its end, which allows the doctor to look for any pathology or anomaly. The endoscope presents an image on the television screen that allows the surgeon to see the inside of the hand or wrist directly.

The orthopedic surgeon may insert surgical instruments through the second incision to cut the transverse carpal ligament and thus releasing the pressure on the median nerve by expanding the carpal tunnel. After the ligament is cut, the incisions are closed by dissolvable sutures. Endoscopic carpal tunnel release surgery is much less traumatic to the joint, muscles ligaments, and tissues than the conventional carpal tunnel surgery that is performed with long incisions.
