  • What is the treatment for carpal tunnel syndrome?

    Carpal tunnel release surgery is the most successful solution for carpal tunnel syndrome. The surgery has proven effective in eliminating all symptoms of the condition and avoiding any damage to the median nerve. When the symptoms are mild, simple measures and precautions like wearing a splint and avoiding activities that involve extreme movements of the wrist can provide some relief. But if the pressure on the median nerve sustains, it can worsen symptoms and lead to severe nerve damage.

    What happens during carpal tunnel treatment?

    Diagnosis before carpal tunnel surgery

    During the physical exam for carpal tunnel syndrome, your doctor will ask you questions about your symptoms, medical history, occupation, and general health. Your affected hand and wrist will be carefully examined with the help of several tests. During the tests, the doctor may do one or all of the following things. 

    After a physical exam, some tests are performed to ascertain the extent of the condition and the damage to the median nerve. Some of the tests that may be performed and listed as follows:

    Procedure for carpal tunnel surgery

    The surgery is minimally invasive and aims to release the pressure on the median nerve. The surgery makes use of an endoscope, which involves a flexible, thin tube that has a camera attached at its end. A small incision is made on the risk and the endoscope is inserted through it. This helps the surgeon to visualize the internal structure without a large incision. When the ligament is located, a tiny cutting tool is inserted to release the ligament. This, in turn, releases the pressure on the median nerve and eliminates the symptoms of carpal tunnel syndrome.

    Are you going through any of these symptoms

    How to prepare for carpal tunnel surgery?

    You must keep yourself prepared for carpal tunnel release surgery. The following are a few tips that can help you prepare better.

    Discuss with your orthopedic surgeon about all medicines you are at that moment, including OTC medicines, supplements, vitamins, and herbs. You will probably be asked to stop taking certain medicines, such as ibuprofen or aspirin, before the surgery.

    If you are a smoker, you will be advised to quit before the surgery as smoking can delay healing. You might be asked not to eat or drink anything for 6-12 hours before the surgery.

    Based on your medical condition and history your orthopedic surgeon may request other specific preoperative preparations. You may need to undergo certain preoperative tests such as blood tests or an electrocardiogram (ECG) before the surgery. This usually happens on the same day of the surgery.

    What happens if carpal tunnel syndrome is left untreated?

    Delaying or avoiding surgery for carpal tunnel release can worsen the severity of the condition and you may experience a progression of the current symptoms and may experience severe pain and reduced hand motion. Patients are suggested to have surgery for carpal tunnel syndrome as soon as possible to prevent further deterioration. To consult our orthopedic surgeons for carpal tunnel syndrome near you, give us a call to make an appointment at our orthopedic clinic in your city. 

    Physiotherapy for carpal tunnel surgery

    After carpal tunnel release surgery, if the patient does not follow proper rehabilitation and physiotherapy, then the recovery will take much longer. Physiotherapy helps avoid the build-up of scar tissue in the operated region and opens up the tunnel in the wrist to allow proper wrist function. It also helps regain a complete range of motion for the wrist. In addition to physiotherapy, patients should also wear assistive devices such as thumb splints to encourage recovery.

    Common carpal tunnel syndrome exercises to follow after carpal tunnel surgery are:

    -Finger tip touching: Hold up your hand, palm side up, and touch your thumb with each fingertip in both directions to complete a full cycle. Perform this exercise 3 to 5 times.

    -Wrist flexion and stretch: Extend your arm with the wrist flexed at a 900 angle. Pull the wrist back by the other hand. Hold this position for 10-30 seconds 5-6 times for each hand.

    Tendon gliding: Hold your hand straight up and bend your fingers at a 900 angle towards the first knuckle while keeping the fingers together. Then, bend them towards the second knuckle, then form a fist. Then open the hand and repeat the action 5-10 times.

    What are the major risk factors associated with carpal tunnel syndrome?

    Risk factors associated with carpal tunnel syndrome are:-

    People with small carpal tunnels hereditarily are more likely to get carpal tunnel syndrome.

    Women are three times more likely to get carpal tunnel syndrome, especially during pregnancy due to constant hormonal fluctuations.;

    Post-operative care and rehabilitation

    After carpal tunnel surgery, most patients are discharged on the same day. At the time of discharge, patients are given some instructions for rehabilitation and post-operative care. The instructions may include the following.

    Case Study

    Ms. Manisha Chauhan (changed name) contacted Pristyn Care through our website by filling out the form with the required details. He was suffering from pain, numbness, and discomfort in her left wrist. Our medical coordinator booked her appointment with Dr. Pono Goti Vamshi Bharat.

    Dr. Bharat conducted a physical examination to check the severity of the condition. He even recommended a few diagnostic tests such as nerve conduction study(NCS) and electromyography (EMG). After getting the results, Dr. Bharat diagnosed Ms. Chauhan with stage 2 carpal tunnel syndrome. He recommended endoscopic carpal tunnel release surgery to treat the condition. 

    The surgery was performed on an outpatient basis. She got discharged the same day of the surgery as it was successful. Dr. Bharat scheduled a follow-up consultation after a week of surgery to check the progress of the recovery. 

    She informed later in follow-up session that she is recovering well and not feeling any pain or other symptoms in her left hand. 


    Are there any restrictions after carpal tunnel surgery?

    After surgery, there are no restrictions on activities. However, heavy gripping and lifting may cause pain for several days or weeks. As with all surgical procedures, the recovery time varies by patient and demand.

    Is endoscopic carpal tunnel release surgery painful?

    Endoscopic carpal tunnel release surgery is performed under local anesthesia. It is a minor surgery that is entirely painless. Open surgery causes more pain compared to endoscopic surgery.

    How soon can I go back to work after carpal tunnel surgery?

    If the surgery is on the dominant hand and the patient has to perform repetitive motions such as typing and assembly-line work, then they can go back to work in 6-8 weeks. However, if it is on their non-dominant hand and they don’t need to perform repeated motions, they can go back to work in 7-10 days.

    How long does carpal tunnel surgery take?

    Carpal tunnel surgery does not take over 15-20 minutes per hand. The patient spends around 45-60 minutes in the operation theater for the entire procedure before being moved to the patient ward.

    When can I drive after carpal tunnel surgery?

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

    Types of Carpal Tunnel Release Surgery

    Open release surgery

    During open carpal tunnel release surgery, the surgeon makes a 2 inch long incision on the wrist over the palm. Then, they cut through the underlying ligament, muscle, and tendon tissues to access and widen the carpal tunnel. This reduces the pressure on the median nerve and provides the patient pain relief.

    Endoscopic Carpal Tunnel Release Surgery

    During the endoscopic carpal tunnel release procedure, the surgeon makes two half-inch incisions, one over the wrist and the other over the palm so they can maneuver around the underlying connective tissues to perform the surgery. This helps prevent damage to the surrounding tissues, quickens recovery and reduces the chances of post-operative complications.
