Carpal tunnel syndrome is a common condition that causes pain, numbness, and tingling in the hands and wrists. Although surgery is often recommended for severe cases, there are non-surgical treatment options that can help alleviate symptoms and improve overall hand function.
One non-surgical treatment option for carpal tunnel syndrome is wearing a wrist splint. This can help to keep the wrist in a neutral position, which can reduce pressure on the median nerve and alleviate symptoms. Physical therapy exercises and stretches can also help to improve wrist and hand strength, flexibility, and range of motion, which can reduce the severity of symptoms.
In addition to these non-surgical options, lifestyle modifications such as taking frequent breaks from repetitive hand movements, using ergonomic tools, and maintaining good posture can also help to relieve symptoms of carpal tunnel syndrome.
By incorporating these non-surgical treatment options into your daily routine, you can effectively manage and reduce the symptoms of carpal tunnel syndrome without the need for surgery. It’s important to consult with a healthcare professional to determine the best course of treatment for your specific condition.
