Carpal Tunnel Syndrome – Symptoms and Treatment Options

PORT CHARLOTTE, FL – Most people have heard of the commonly diagnosed hand condition called Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, but do you know what it really is?

Carpal Tunnel Syndrome is a malady that is caused from pressure on a nerve. Symptoms include numbness and tingling in the thumb, index, and middle finger.  Pain and aching are also common symptoms of the conditions.  Symptoms are generally more severe at night and can occasionally include your forearm and other fingers.  So what can you do to alleviate the pain and discomfort?

Florida Hand Center offers non-surgical treatments as well as an outpatient endoscopic surgery that allows you to return to your normal activities almost immediately after surgery (with some post-op instructions to avoid heavy lifting etc).

Dr. Helgemo is actually Florida’s leading carpal tunnel surgeon.  With 95 percent patient satisfaction, it is an option to consider when exploring how to alleviate your carpal tunnel symptoms.
