Patients presenting with Carpal Tunnel Syndrome (CTS) will often report intermittent pain and numbness in parts of the hand (median nerve distribution), muscle weakness, and night pain. Usually, people with CTS first notice a numbness or "falling asleep" sensation in their thumb, index and middle finger at night.
Carpal Tunnel Syndrome (CTS) is a cause of functional impairment and chronic wrist pain of the hand. It results from compression of the median nerve as it passes through the carpal tunnel. An increase in synovial fluid pressure and tendon tension/inflammation can cause compression of the median nerve in the carpal tunnel. Excessive repetitive movements of the arms, wrists or hands from activities such as painting or typing can aggravate the carpal tunnel bringing out the symptoms of carpal tunnel syndrome.
Some Non-surgical management strategies can include physiotherapy, acupuncture, steroid injections, activity modification, use of night splints and bracing, patient education, diuretics, and NSAIDs.
