Carpal tunnel syndrome occurs when the median nerve in the wrist becomes compressed, resulting in numbness and tingling in the hand. At North Carolina Orthopaedic Clinic based in Durham, carpal tunnel syndrome is one of the many conditions our experienced hand surgeons regularly see and treat. We offer both conservative treatments and carpal tunnel surgery to ensure our patients have a range of treatment options available. Whether you are experiencing symptoms of this condition or have already been diagnosed and are exploring your treatment options, you can find the dedicated treatment and care you deserve at our community-based clinic.
How Carpal Tunnel Release Works
As a starting point, treatment may involve several conservative approaches, such as resting, taking pain medications, or bracing the wrist. However, more persistent cases that do not respond to conservative techniques may require surgery. Carpal tunnel surgery aims to alleviate the pressure on the median nerve by cutting the ligament that surrounds the nerve. This is accomplished using a series of small incisions in the palm
