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.
