Carpal Tunnel Syndrome | Nucleus Health


The carpal tunnel is a narrow passage in the
wrist. It is formed by wrist bones on the bottom and sides and a tough band of connective
tissue, called the transverse carpal ligament, on top. Muscle tendons and the median nerve
pass through the carpal tunnel. The median nerve controls muscles in the palm and base
of the thumb, allowing them to move. It also provides feeling to the thumb and nearby two
and a half fingers. Carpal tunnel syndrome is a condition where tissue swelling causes
pressure to build up within the carpal tunnel. This puts pressure on the median nerve. Over
time median nerve pressures results in symptoms in the areas of hand it supplies. Common symptoms
in these areas are pain, numbness, tingling, and weakness. Risk factors for carpal tunnel
syndrome include a smaller carpal tunnel from being female or from genes passed down from
parents, wrist injuries, other medical conditions that cause inflammation, fluid buildup, or
nerve damage such as diabetes, pregnancy, rheumatoid arthritis, obesity, and hypothyroidism,
and repetitive hand or wrist motions. A common treatment for mild to moderate carpal tunnel
syndrome is keeping the wrist in a neutral position by wearing a brace or splint. In
addition, non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, or NSAIDs, may help relieve pain. A
doctor may recommend a corticosteroid injection to reduce inflammation and swelling. For moderate
to severe symptoms, a doctor may recommend a surgical procedure called carpal tunnel
release. This procedure may be done as an open procedure through an incision between
the palm and wrist, or it may be done as an endoscopic procedure through a small keyhole
incision. The surgeon will perform this procedure with an endoscope, which is a device containing
a tiny camera and surgical instruments. In both procedures the transverse carpal ligament
will be cut to relieve pressure on the median nerve. At the end of either procedure the
incision will be closed with sutures.
