Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

Hours: Mon-Fri: 8:30 AM - 5:00 PM
Call Us: (770) 787- 3550

The carpal tunnel is a passageway for the median nerve, which passes through the wrist joint to the hand and fingers. When inflammation or narrowing of the carpal tunnel occurs, it can put pressure on the median nerve and results in chronic hand pain and dysfunction. This condition is called carpal tunnel syndrome, a common repetitive use nerve injury. Our team at Hanowell Spine Clinic in Covington, GA, offers carpal tunnel syndrome treatment to reduce chronic pain and improve mobility.

Repetitive use of the fingers and hands is linked to carpal tunnel syndrome. Intricate finger use or constant bending of the wrist forward can cause inflammation in the wrist joint, putting pressure on the median nerve. This nerve affects the thumb, pointer, middle and ring fingers. When it is pinched or pressured, there may be numbness, pain, tingling and weakness in the wrist, hand and fingers. Conservative or non-invasive carpal tunnel syndrome treatment is recommended for relief, with surgery as a last resort.

Improving Wrist and Hand Function

When the median nerve is under pressure, it can impact the wrist and hand function. Those with carpal tunnel syndrome may have difficulty with hand strength and dexterity, along with pain, tingling and numbness. Certain exercises and stretches can help improve strength and relieve pressure in the wrist. In addition, injection therapy can reduce inflammation for lessened pain and nerve impingement to reduce carpal tunnel symptoms.

If you suffer from carpal tunnel syndrome, come see us at Hanowell Spine Clinic in Covington, GA. We will evaluate you to determine the best treatment plan to give relief. If your carpal tunnel syndrome is due to a workplace injury, we are workers’ compensation doctors that can help in your treatment. Contact us today to schedule a consultation.

My knees were so bad I could hardly walk. After 3 injections no pain.

Dr. Michael Hanowell has relieved my sciatica pain. I was in a wheelchair and after the first epidural I was able to walk. After a recent car accident he put several injections in my back and neck which relieved the pain greatly. He and his staff are very considerate and do everything possible to work with you on relieving your pain.

Mike D.

Dr. Hanowell treated my sciatica pain & I went from being in a wheelchair and barely able to walk to being pain free. He is very professional, caring, and conscientious. He has given me several epidurals and trigger point injections for various issues related to age and injuries and his treatments were very effective. His staff is also very professional.
