Carpal Tunnel Surgery? Do This First!

Who else is loving this warm weather? The ice is melting over the lake, the sun is shining bright, and we can see Spring just around the corner. How do you plan to stay active and enjoy the weather?

As we begin working in the yard, completing projects and even normal computer work we place a burden on the wrists. Carpal Tunnel Syndrome is no fun with numbness and tingling in the hand so bad it can even wake you up at night. The most common answer to this problem is surgery. I won’t get into all the details but in my experience it is still short lived relief. Carpal tunnel surgery cuts what's called the retinaculum, which lets some pressure off the carpals. The issue though is the retinaculum is a ligamentous band that is like a bracelet. The true pressure is stemming from the forearm muscles contracting so hard is smashes the carpals narrowing the space around the nerve causing numbness.   

When doing daily activities or chores, you may feel pain in your wrists. This will often happen especially after repetitive use. With outside activities and chores calling your name, we’d hate to see this issue trouble your Spring!
