Carpal Tunnel Pain Treatment

Carpal tunnel syndrome is brought about by pressure on the median nerve. The carpal tunnel is a limited space encompassed by bones and ligaments on the palm side of your hand. When the median nerve is compressed in the carpal tunnel it can cause numbness, tingling and weakness in the hand. The symptoms are typically worse at night and with certain activities.

Pregnancy, medical issues and repetitive hand movements can add to carpal tunnel syndrome.

EMG/NCV testing can help definitively diagnose and grade the severity of carpal tunnel syndrome. Get in touch with us for Carpal Tunnel syndrome diagnosis and Treatment in Edison NJ.
