Dr. LeGeyt talks about Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
Carpal tunnel syndrome is a common condition that causes pain, numbness, and tingling in the hand and arm. The condition occurs when one of the major nerves to the hand — the median nerve — is squeezed or compressed as it travels through the wrist.
In most patients, carpal tunnel syndrome gets worse over time, so early diagnosis and treatment are important. Hear our hand and wrist expert, Dr. Michael LeGeyt, discuss risk factors, non-surgical treatment options, and when surgery may be warranted.
