Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
Carpal tunnel syndrome occurs due to compression of one of the hand nerves called the median nerve. The nerve gets compressed as it passes on the palm side from the forearm through the wrist to the hand. The median nerve runs in a space called the carpal tunnel with the tendons that move the fingers. When there is too much swelling within the space the median nerve will get pinched, causing carpal tunnel syndrome. Dr. Vizzi can guide you through the treatment options for carpal tunnel syndrome. These options may include nonsurgical and /or surgical treatment depending on the severity of the symptoms, the length of the symptoms and how well the symptoms respond to treatment.
