Wrist and Hand

Types of Injuries

Carpal Tunnel Syndrome is often successfully treated with bracing, therapy, and injections. It’s caused when tendons in the wrist swell and put pressure on the median nerve, resulting in hand pain and numbness. Some cases may need surgical release of the transverse carpal ligament; this alleviates pressure on the median nerve.
 

Signs and symptoms of carpal tunnel syndrome:

 

  • Dull, sharp, or radiating pain in your hand

  • Tingling, numbness, or a burning feeling in your thumb and/or first two fingers

  • Arm pain that may continue up to your shoulder

  • Swelling and/or weakness in your hand

 

Trigger Finger occurs when inflammation narrows the space that surrounds the tendon of the finger, making motion limited, causing the finger to lock, catch or trigger as the finger is extended. A snapping sound may be heard as the finger is straightened, like a trigger being pulled and released. Treatment depends on severity and includes splinting, anti-inflammatory medications, injections and in some cases surgery.
