The main nerves that facilitate muscle movement and sensation in the limbs must be protected when traveling through joints. The movement in the elbow, wrist and ankle can pinch nerves without protection. These joints contain tunnels formed from bone, muscle and tendon to allow nerves to pass through. When an injury, repetitive use or disease causes inflammation, these tunnels can put pressure on the nerves. Hanowell Spine Clinic offers tunnel injections to relieve nerve pressure at our clinic in Covington, GA.

Carpal tunnel syndrome is one of the best-known issues involving a nerve tunnel. The carpal tunnel is in the wrist. If there is inflammation or expanded tissue, the carpal nerve can be pinched, resulting in numbness, weakness and pain in the wrist, hand and fingers. Other tunnels include the cubital tunnel on the inside of the elbow, the tarsal tunnel in the ankle and the radial tunnel on the outside of the elbow. Tunnel injections are a non-invasive treatment that can offer relief from syndromes involving nerve tunnel inflammation.

Relief from Tunnel Syndromes

Nerve pressure from tunnel syndromes causes pain, numbness and weakness in the affected limb. There are exercises, massage and other therapies that can offer relief. When conservative therapies are not effective, tunnel injections may be a treatment option. These injections use a local anesthetic and an anti-inflammatory medication to reduce inflammation around the affected tunnel to relieve nerve pressure. The needle is guided by x-ray imaging to the targeted area to release the medication. This treatment can reduce inflammation within a few days, offering pain and symptom relief for many patients with carpal, radial, cubital and tarsal tunnel syndromes.

If you have nerve pain from a tunnel syndrome in your elbow, wrist or ankle, contact us at Hanowell Spine Clinic in Covington, GA. We offer tunnel injections as one treatment option to offer relief from nerve pain.

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.

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.
