Carpal tunnel release

Carpal tunnel syndrome is characterised by pain in the wrist shooting towards thumb, index and middle finger as well as pins and needles followed by gradual loss of sensation (numbness) over time and wasting of hand muscles with weakness of hand-grip. This is the result of pressure on median nerve, one of the main nerves of the hand. The nerve is compressed within a narrow canal by a tight and thick band of ligament tissue above the nerve. This band needs to get released surgically to create more space for the nerve so that nerve can recover. This will help to stop pain and prevent muscle deterioration.
