Addressing Carpal Tunnel

In cases of chronic carpal tunnel syndrome, the only treatments available are corticosteroid steroid injections and surgery. While corticosteroid offers temporary relief by minimizing inflammation, it leads to muscle and soft tissue damage which causes more pain and joint weakness. For this reason, many physicians refuse to do more than a few injections a year. Surgery is another option, but results vary and recovery time is lengthy.

If you are looking for an alternative option for addressing carpal tunnel syndrome, Chronic Care of Richmond is here to help.

Alternative Treatments for Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

Because carpal tunnel syndrome is a nerve related disorder, it is considered a type of localized peripheral neuropathy (or mononeuropathy). Mononeuropathy occurs either due to severe and consistent pressure to a nerve or damage to the myelin sheath (the outer covering of a nerve). Carpal tunnel syndrome is the most common form of mononeuropathy.

At Chronic Care of Richmond, we have a dedicated team of peripheral neuropathy experts who have worked hard to create a holistic peripheral neuropathy treatment program. Our team takes the time to evaluate your unique mononeuropathy case and develop a personalized treatment plan. By combining a wide range of therapies, we are able to offer you relief from the debilitating pain of carpal tunnel syndrome. Your program will be tailored to your individual needs, including finances, age, health and more.

What is Carpal Tunnel Syndrome?

Carpal Tunnel Syndrome is marked by pain, tingling and numbness of the hand, fingers, and arm. Caused by nerve compression on the median nerve that runs through the carpal tunnel in the wrist, this syndrome often starts gradually and worsens with time. If caught early on, symptoms can be managed with bracing and physical therapy. Early treatment may eliminate the possibility of chronic carpal tunnel syndrome.

Often times, even with early treatment, the pressure on the median nerve causes permanent nerve damage which leads to chronic pain. Chronic carpal tunnel syndrome is marked by the following symptoms:

  • Burning, sharp, shooting, and/or aching pain in the wrist, thumb, middle, and index finger. Pain may spread into the forearm and up to the shoulder.
  • Significant loss of grip.
  • Numbness and weakness in the hand, leading to clumsiness and dropping of things.
  • Minimized proprioception of your hand (awareness of where your hand is in space).

About 2 months ago my knee twisted getting out of the tub. It didn't seem like much at first, but it became more and more painful. That's when I saw information about the Chronic Pain clinic where they said they could help stop joint pain without medication or surgery. That sounded like something I would like to try...
