Resolving Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
Early evaluation and treatment are key to pain relief and prevention with this common disorder of the hand and wrist.
Getting a good night’s rest can be challenging when dealing with the aches of arthritis. But, symptoms of tingling and numbness in your hand that rise up your arm at night more than likely aren’t due to inflamed joints. Instead, you’re probably one of the 10 million Americans who are affected by carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS). As the most common nerve disorder experienced today, the symptoms of CTS signal that the painful condition is progressing—an advancing pain that if treated early can be remedied, according to Arthritis Advisor Editor-in-Chief, orthopaedic surgeon Steven Maschke, MD.
