Carpal Tunnel Syndrome is one of the most common nerve compression disorders. Surgery is one of the most commonly used solutions for carpal tunnel. A few carpal tunnel surgery alternatives include physical therapy, hand or wrist braces, steroid injections, and alternative methods such as acupuncture.
Although Carpal tunnel syndrome usually gets worse, sometimes it goes away without treatment.
Symptoms vary, and every case is different based on different traits.
Why some findings have shown corticosteroid may be useful in the non-surgical treatment of carpal tunnel, the results may be temporary.
The success of other therapies, like exercise, yoga, lasers, and magnets, is unknown until further research is done.
Endoscopic Carpal Tunnel Surgery is a minor invasive surgical option. Endoscopic surgery uses a thin, flexible tube with a camera attached at the end, which enables the inspection of the inside of the hand.
A small cut is made at the base of the hand or in the inside of the wrist. This type of surgery does not have such a lengthy recovery period because of the smaller incision.
When the transverse carpal ligament is cut, it releases pressure on the median nerve, thus relieving carpal tunnel symptoms. The small incision most likely will leave the patient with a scar.
Carpal tunnel symptoms may go away right after surgery, or it may take several months. At that time, it is wise not to use your hand for heavy lifting or to put too much pressure on it.
How much you use the affected hand determines how soon you can return to work. Often carpal tunnel occurs on the dominant hand, which is the most used hand.
After surgery, physical therapy can help with the healing and recovery process, as it can ease you into the routine use of your hand again.
Carpal Tunnel Surgery Alternatives
There are a number of alternatives to carpal tunnel surgery.
Hand or wrist braces are often used. However, these devices only immobilize the wrist and hand but do not provide relief from hand pain. They are also unconformable to wear and make doing everyday life and work tasks impossible sometimes.
Steroids and NSAIDS (nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs) such as ibuprofen are also used to relieve pain. But not everyone can take them and there are complications in using some especially for pregnant women, diabetics, and those with other health conditions.
Ice packs and warm treatments often help reduce discomfort from carpal tunnel hand pain, but only for a little while.
Other options include acupuncture and massage. These can be effective, but repeated treatments are needed to keep the pain away.
