Carpel Tunnel

What is carpal tunnel syndrome?

Carpal tunnel syndrome is numbness, tingling, weakness, and other problems in your hand because of pressure on the median nerve in your wrist. The median nerve and several tendons run from your forearm to your hand through a small space in your wrist called the carpal tunnel.

What causes carpal tunnel syndrome?

  • Pressure on the median nerve causes carpal tunnel syndrome. This pressure can come from swelling or anything that makes the carpal tunnel smaller. Many things can cause this swelling, including :
  • Illnesses such as hypothyroidism, rheumatoid arthritis, and diabetes.
  • Making the same hand movements over and over, especially if the wrist is bent down (your hands lower than your wrists), or making the same wrist movements over and over.
  • Pregnancy.

What are the symptoms?

  • Carpal tunnel syndrome can cause tingling, numbness, weakness, or pain in the fingers or hand. Some people may have pain in their arm between their hand and their elbow.
  • Symptoms most often occur in the thumb, index finger, middle finger, and half of the ring finger. If you have problems with your other fingers but your little finger is fine, this may be a sign that you have carpal tunnel syndrome. A different nerve gives feeling to the little finger.
  • You may first notice symptoms at night. You may be able to get relief by shaking your hand.

Non Surgical Treatment For Joint Conditions

AMERICAN SPINE CENTER’s 360 protocol is unique and supported by evidence based medicine. It has been formulated in our primary branch in the USA and implemented in other branches and has been updated since 1991.

We have successfully treated more than 50,000 patients with this protocol at our branches in U.S.A and GCC.

At American Spine Center we not only focus on treating the symptoms of the disease but also on the underlying root cause.

Our aim is to treat the patient as a whole with successful results.

AMERICAN SPINE CENTER’s 360 protocol is based on 4 key principles

  • 1. Consultation & Education : The first step towards a successful treatment is consultation and education. This includes a detailed history and physical examination and review of previous records with the patient. At this stage our specialists will recommend the appropriate medication regimen.
  • 2. Physical Therapy : Physical therapy is one of the keys to managing joint pain. Our physical therapists actively engage the patient in rehabilitation and exercises. Physical therapy helps place patients on the right track by exercising weak points and regaining strength that may have been lost.
  • 3. Non-Surgical Pain Procedures: These procedures are an integrated part of our successful protocol of non-surgical treatment, and it ensures success rates. A series of therapeutic injections are administered to very specific areas of the spine to alleviate pain that would otherwise interfere with daily life. Our Pain Physicians are skilled in using this advanced method of Pain Management with care and safety. We use C-ARM and ultrasound guide for precise placement of the needle for increased effectiveness and to avoid any potential side effect.
  • 4. Nutrition & Wellness: We believe that the patient’s active participation with treatment protocol produces long-lasting results. We review all conditions as well as risk factors. We address many issues; such as smoking cessation, overweight problems, ergonomic posture, and exercises that can fit into any lifestyle or schedule. We feel that implementing these changes will improve the chances of long-lasting results so the patient can enjoy a normal active life.
