Carpal Tunnel Syndrome can be extremely frustrating. For many people, it builds up slowly. It’s more annoying at first, but over time it can affect your daily life. Driving can be a chore. Sleep is impossible. Some people give up, thinking ‘nothing can be done’ and ‘I just need to learn to live with it’.
And that’s sad. More than just taking pain killers every day, often times, something can be done – especially in the early stages. It starts with an accurate diagnosis.
What is causing your symptoms? Carpal tunnel syndrome can be a result of nerve pressure in the neck, shoulder, elbow or wrist. This means that the treatment will vary on a case-to-case basis.
