www.preop.com Patient ED @ 617-379-1582 INFO Your doctor has recommended that you undergo hand surgery to treat carpal tunnel syndrome. But what exactly is carpal tunnel syndrome? The median nerve, which carries sensation to the thumb and first three fingers, passes through a natural passageway in the wrist. This opening – called the carpal tunnel is formed by arch-shaped wrist bones and a connecting ligament. Various conditions, such as pregnancy, injury, arthritis and changes in the tendons caused by repetitive motion can crowd the already narrow tunnel, putting pressure on the nerve. This added pressure can cause a tingling sensation in the fingers and the thumb and may even lead to numbness, pain and restricted movement. This combination of symptoms is called the carpal tunnel syndrome.
I run the mile for track. I found out I have patella tendonitis. I would like to know if there are any good remedies or exercises that I can do to help my knee loosen up and not hurt so much, basically, for it to be flexible without any pain. Do you know any?
I have tennis elbow, I got it from doing shot put since then I quit track, but I am still bodybuilding, and during arm workouts my elbow gives me a lot of pain. I have been icing it but it seems to be getting worse!
What should I do? Go to the doctor?
I can’t stop lifting cause I’m just coming off of a thumb injury that kept me out for 8 weeks!!!
For my health project we have an injury and we have to demonstrate what the bones and muscles and stuff would look like if that happened. Well I have tendonitis and I have no clue how to show what it is can anyone help?
When I served during my last match, I felt a pain in my elbow section. just below the shoulders up to the elbow. Is this the tennis elbow? How did I got it? and how can i get rid of it?
Ok, so sorry for m wrong info.. it’s not my elbow that hurts.. it’s my triceps? hmm I dunno much about anatomy, but it’s the muscle between my elbow and shoulders, the muscle below the shoulder.
My hubby has really bad pain from tendonitis in his elbow. He takes Advil and puts a arm brace on it. But he is in so much pain and can’t get it relieve at all. Anyone have any suggestions or tips on what to do? Do you know if he is supposed to use hot / or cold?
I know you are supposed to rest it and let it heal, but with his work, he cannot take that time off. He has to work, and he uses it a lot at work. HELP!!! How long til it’ll go away?
Carpal tunnel surgery, as performed through a less-than 2cm incision, is demonstrated by John D. Mahoney, MD. This procdure is to relieve pressure on the median nerve, which occurs as a part of carpal tunnel syndrome. More information is available at www.doctormahoney.com This procedure was performed under tourniquet control, which is why there is not any bleeding.
