If you’ve been dealing with hand pain and suspect you’re in need of Carpal Tunnel treatment, Advanced Wellness welcomes you to our practice! Our integrative team works together—from the physical therapy team to our pain management expert, to create a treatment plan that will heal you from hand and wrist pain, and strengthen you…from the tips of your fingers, down.
Symptoms of Hand Pain: Is it Carpal Tunnel Syndrome?
Before our team creates a personalized healing and wellness program for you to relieve your hand pain, we’ll diagnose the issue to make sure we’re addressing your pain right at the source.
Here are some facts about Carpal Tunnel Syndrome:
- Symptoms will most often occur in the parts of the hand supplied by the median nerve: the thumb, index finger, middle finger, and half of the ring finger
Note: If your little finger is not affected, this may be a sign that the condition is indeed, Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, because the little finger is usually controlled by a different nerve than the thumb and other fingers.
- Symptoms often occur in both hands, but symptoms are usually worse in one hand than the other
- Symptoms will most often start to “appear” at night—people with Carpal Tunnel can usually fall asleep, but pain or numbness may wake them up
- Symptoms that are mild typically affect only the hand and forearm, but they can radiate up to the shoulder
Wrist Pain Treatment: More Facts About Carpal Tunnel
Here are more facts about Carpal Tunnel. Many of our patients seeking wrist pain treatment came to us with these common Carpal Tunnel symptoms:
- Occasional tingling, numbness, “pins-and-needles” sensation, or pain—the feeling is similar to your hand “falling asleep”
- Numbness or pain that gets worse while you are using your hand or wrist, especially when gripping an object with your hand or bending (flexing) your wrist
- Occasional aching pain in your forearm between your elbow and wrist
- Stiffness in your fingers when you get up in the morning
Ready For Carpal Tunnel Relief
If you find yourself dealing with constant numbness or reduced strength and grip in your fingers, thumb, or hand, it may be time to seek Carpal Tunnel relief. It may be difficult to do simple hand movements, such as brushing your hair or holding a fork. You may accidentally drop objects. Many of our patients had a hard time using their thumbs while opening a jar, or even pinching an object between the thumb and first finger. If you’re ready to avoid these issues or resolve such problems, let the team at Advanced Wellness assess and create a treatment plan so you can begin to feel better today.
