What is Carpal Tunnel Syndrome?
Carpal Tunnel Syndrome is a medical condition arising from compression of the Median Nerve as it travels through the wrist. It is presented with Pain, Numbness, Tingling esp in the thumb, index and middle fingers of the hand. Pain may extend up the arm. The median nerve and several tendons run from forearm to our hand through a small space in our wrist called the Carpal Tunnel. Pressure on the median nerve causes carpal tunnel syndrome Weak grip strength develops and over a period of time muscles at the base of thumb waste away.
Most cases of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome are of unknown cause. Any condition that causes pressure on the median nerve at the wrist can produce symptoms which include obesity, oral contraceptives, hypothyroidism, arthritis, diabetes, trauma and pregnancy. Certain benign tumours such as lipomas, ganglion, and vascular malformation can also put pressure on the median nerve. Also making the same hand movements over and over or wrist movement over and over again can lead to the condition.
People with Carpal tunnel Syndrome presents with numbness, tingling, or burning sensations in the thumb and fingers, particularly the index and middle fingers and lateral half of the ring finger. Symptoms may include pain in the wrists or hands, loss of grip strength. One might notice symptoms develop gradually at night and may be able to get relief by shaking hand.
Mild symptoms usually can be treated with home care. Applying icepacks for pain relief, wearing a wrist splint at night which takes the pressure off median nerve, physiotherapy and exercise, stop activities that cause numbness and pain and rest wrist longer between activities.
If Carpal Tunnel Syndrome is associated with other disease condition than tackling that condition improves the condition. A course of nonsurgical therapies are tried before release surgery is considered.
Long-term chronic carpal tunnel syndrome (usually seen in the elderly) can result in permanent
nerve damage with irreversible numbness, muscle wasting, and weakness.
Homeopathy has treated many surgical cases, including those of carpal tunnel syndrome. Homeopathic remedies are prescribed by symptoms rather than conditions, as each case of a particular illness can manifest differently in different people. It is safe and gentle and works with body to relieve symptoms.The medicines work by reducing the swelling and inflammation of the carpal tunnel thereby resulting in reducing the compression of the median nerve
