Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

Carpal tunnel syndrome is a set of symptoms that are caused by compression of the median nerve at the wrist. The median nerve supplies sensation to the thumb, index, middle and inner part of the ring finger.

Carpal tunnel syndrome can cause a tingling sensation, numbness and sometimes pain in the hand and fingers. The majority of the symptoms tend to be felt in the thumb, index and middle finger, and can be worse during the night.

Early carpal tunnel syndrome may respond to activity modification, splinting or steroid injections.

For more severe cases, a carpal tunnel release may be offered. This operation can be performed under local anaesthetic and involves a short incision at the base of the palm to release the ligament causing pressure on the nerve.
