In this episode, we will be discussing Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, a common condition that affects millions of people worldwide. But before we dive into the topic, we want to tell you about a great opportunity to advance your medical knowledge through the NRAP Academy CME courses offered on our website.
Discussion on Carpal Tunnel Syndrome:
Carpal Tunnel Syndrome is a condition that occurs when the median nerve, which runs from the forearm to the hand, becomes compressed or squeezed at the wrist. This compression can lead to pain, numbness, and tingling in the hand and arm, which can be debilitating.
There are many causes of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, including repetitive hand movements, wrist injuries, pregnancy, and medical conditions such as diabetes and thyroid disorders. Treatment options for Carpal Tunnel Syndrome range from non-invasive approaches like rest, ice, and wrist splints to more invasive treatments like surgery.
It's important to diagnose and treat Carpal Tunnel Syndrome early to prevent long-term damage to the median nerve. A proper diagnosis can be made through a physical exam and imaging tests like an electromyography (EMG) or nerve conduction study (NCS).
