Since 1963, generations of families have chosen us for compassionate and comprehensive orthopedic care. If you are experiencing unusual muscle weakness or numbness in one of your hands, we encourage you to consult with an experienced ORA doctor.
The carpal tunnel is a thin passageway on the palm side of the wrist that houses one of the main nerves to the hand. Carpal tunnel syndrome – along with its uncomfortable symptoms – occurs when this passageway is compressed, causing the nerve to become pinched. This nerve irritation often triggers numbness, tingling sensations and hand weakness that can make performing everyday tasks difficult. Several factors can contribute to the development of carpal tunnel syndrome, including repetitive movement that overextends the wrist, broken bones in the hand, and inflammation from rheumatoid arthritis.
At ORA Orthopedics in the Quad Cities, our carpal tunnel treatment begins with how we treat you. Your ORA hand doctor will carefully evaluate your condition, review your symptoms and design an individualized treatment plan to improve hand function and comfort. Conservative therapies for carpal tunnel patients include corticosteroid injections, wrist splinting and specialized hand physical therapy. In the event that surgery is necessary to relieve the nerve compression that is causing your pain and dysfunction, rest assured our orthopedic hand surgeons are highly experienced and practice minimally invasive surgical techniques to reduce incisions and recovery periods.
