Understanding Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
Carpal tunnel syndrome is a fairly common condition that can cause the suffer to experience numbness, tingling, and pain in the arm and hand. Carpal tunnel syndrome occurs when the median nerve in the hand becomes compressed or pinched around the wrist.
If left untreated, the issues caused by carpal tunnel syndrome can be become debilitating and can make performing normal tasks such as writing a painful and difficult ordeal. Thankfully, there are options for treating carpal tunnel syndrome that are both effective and safe. Neurosurgeon Dr. Nader Pouratian can surgically relieve the pressure being placed on the nerve by making a small incision in the wrist and removing a small portion of the tissue pressing against the nerve.
