Carpal tunnel syndrome


Finger, hand and wrist pain – occasionally emanating to the arms and shoulders. Pain is mostly attended by disturbed skin sensation and at times weakened arm and hand muscles. Disorders are frequently stronger at night.


Carpal tunnel syndrome is caused by a ligament stenosis in the wrist at the point where the median nerve traverses the carpal tunnel.


Surgical concepts
Microsurgical relief to the median nerve by means of decompression, et al.

Conservative concepts
Infiltrations, physical procedures, ultrasound, acupuncture, et al.
