CARPAL TUNNEL SYNDROME
What is Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
Carpal tunnel syndrome is caused by compression or irritation of a nerve that can cause pain, numbness, weakness or pins and needles. The condition can be confirmed by examination at our private hand clinic where we can perform specialized nerve tests.

What is the treatment?
The hand doctor will recommend which of the many treatments options available will be best and create a precise treatment plan that is tailored around you.
