Many people hear and talk about “Carpal tunnel syndrome” when their wrists hurt, but few understand how such condition is diagnosed and treated. “Carpal tunnel syndrome” is a common condition that causes numbness and tingling in the hand and arm. This medical condition occurs when the median nerve (one of the major nerves to the hand) is compressed. For most affected people, this condition worsens over time. Initially, the symptoms can be alleviated with non-surgical solutions, such as a wrist splint and steroid injections. There are certain risk factors which increase the risk of Carpal Tunnel syndrome, such as heredity, repetitive hand use (in office settings, for example), and other health conditions such as diabetes and rheumatoid arthritis. Finally, sometimes surgery is required, called "carpal tunnel release." Essentially, the types of surgery used increase the size of the tunnel and decrease pressure on the median nerve.
Date, time and location of the Lecture: Thursday, March 28, 2019, at 5.30pm at the The Surgical Institute of Reading. RSVP by calling 610-378-8800.
