Thank you for the question.
CTS (carpal tunnel syndrome) is characterized by pain, tingling, numbness, to weakness that feels mainly in the thumb, index finger, and middle finger. This condition occurs due to pressure on the median nerve that crosses the wrist, for example due to fractures, rheumatoid arthritis, obesity, injuries at work, to certain anatomic abnormalities of the wrist.
In mild cases, CTS can be cured by conservative treatment, such as:
Providing several types of drugs, as the doctor prescribes to you
Rest the affected hand
Splinting on the affected hand
Warm wrist compresses
Improve your posture during activities to remain ergonomic, such as by not bending or pressing the wrist excessively, use a pad when working with a mouse or computer
Drink lots and eat a variety of foods that are rich in B complex vitamins
In mild conditions, often the above treatment is able to relieve symptoms so that patients can return to their normal activities within 1-4 weeks later. But indeed, only with the conservative handling above, the risk of recurrence seems to be quite high.
If your condition has improved with the treatment of the doctor above, often do not need further surgery to resolve your complaint. But sebalikmnya, if your condition does not improve significantly with the above therapy, or this condition is very limiting your daily activities, then generally the doctor will recommend that surgery be performed. This operation can be done by open surgery or endoscopic surgery.
Therefore, it is better for you to be disciplined in undergoing medical treatment while undergoing the above treatment. Do not forget, also control your illness after treatment after seeing a doctor or neurologist who treats you. If necessary, the doctor will be able to coordinate with the surgeon in giving you the best treatment.
Hope this helps ...
