Minimally Invasive Carpal Tunnel Solutions

If you start to feel pain in your thumbs or wrists and it is becoming difficult to perform daily tasks, you might be suffering from carpal tunnel syndrome.

Carpal tunnel occurs with the compression of the median nerve in the hand. “Of the nerves that go to your hand, the median nerve is the biggest in terms of how much skin it covers, but it’s the one nerve that goes through a confined space, called the carpal tunnel,” explains Dr. Christopher Jobe, orthopedic surgeon at Oroville Hospital. “Also in that space are tendons and occasionally some muscle. So, if there is any swelling in there, the nerve is the one that suffers and the person experiences numbness in the thumb and the next two and a half fingers.”

Some populations are more at risk, including those who are prone to inflammation and individuals who engage in certain repetitive motions—whether related to one’s career or other physical activities.
