Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

Specialists in Treating Carpal Tunnel Syndrome in Bellingham, WA

Carpal Tunnel Syndrome (aka CTS) is a problem of the median nerve which runs from the forearm into the hand. When there is excessive pressure in the wrist, it causes swelling of the median nerve. This small area called the carpal tunnel is a narrow tunnel at the wrist made up of bones, soft tissues, nerves, tendons, ligaments and blood vessels. When the median nerve which runs through this tunnel gets compressed it causes pain, weakness, numbness or tingling in the hand and wrist which radiates into the forearm. The carpal tunnel is the most common area that gets compressed in both the hands and feet.

What to Know About Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

CTS should be diagnosed and treated early. During your consultation, you will receive a standard physical examination of the hands, arms, shoulders and neck to help determine if your symptoms are related to daily activities or to an underlying disorder. Laboratory tests and x-rays can reveal diabetes, arthritis, fractures, and other common causes of wrist and hand pain.

Symptoms of Carpal Tunnel can include:

  • Pain or numbness in one or both hands
  • Swollen feeling in the fingers
  • Burning or tingling in the fingers, especially the thumb and index and middle fingers.
