Have you felt numbness or tingling in your arm or your hand or experienced weakness in your grip that has persisted for several days or months at a time? Is the pain worse at night?
These are typical symptoms of carpal tunnel syndrome and can be caused from the nerves in the neck or from muscles not functioning properly. As a result, it is highly recommended to explore more conservative possibilities before turning to surgery.
Carpal tunnel syndrome typically begins slowly and may affect one hand or both. It might seem like the problem is all in the wrist but the nerves that go to the hand and wrist start in the cervical spine. Wrist, forearm, and shoulder pain can all be connected to a neck injury. Muscles may be “shut down” from repetitive motion or injury.
The brain and nervous system acts much like a circuit breaker in a house. When muscles are overloaded or trauma occurs, the central nervous system may “shut down” muscles or muscle groups to minimize strain or tears to protect the body. Other muscles or muscle groups will take over to compensate.
