Carpal Tunnel Syndrome & Its Types

Carpal Tunnel Syndrome is a condition resulting from excessive pressure on the median nerve. The median nerve is responsible for the feeling and movement of the hands and fingers. Carpal tunnel syndrome can either affect one or both hands. The affected hand can experience numbness, tingling, and weakness. Carpal tunnel syndrome can be caused due to underlying health conditions like diabetes or thyroid dysfunction. It can also develop due to restricted blood flow to the region

Carpal tunnel syndrome treatment should start as soon as the symptoms start. Simple steps like cold pack treatment to reduce swelling, taking frequent breaks to rest the hand can help with Carpal tunnel syndrome pain relief and prevent further aggravating the condition. For more severe symptoms, wrist splinting, medication, and surgery might be required.

Physically active people are less likely to develop Carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS). Women are at a higher risk of developing CTS than men and most cases are diagnosed between the age of 30 and 60. Lifestyle habits like smoking and a high body mass index increase the risk of developing the condition.

Stages in Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

The severity of carpal tunnel syndrome is graded on a five-stage scale.

  • Stage 1- Paraesthesia only at night. Numbness and tingling only at night can be relieved by shaking the hand.M

  • Stage 2 - Paraesthesia even during the day.

  • Stage 3 - Sensory defect in any part of the hand supplied by the median nerve. Severe nerve injury at this stage and no tingling will be felt.

  • Stage 4 - Hypertrophy and or motor weakness.

  • Stage 5 - Atrophy and or plegia of the same muscles.

    About Carpel Tunnel

    Carpal tunnel syndrome is a condition that causes weakness, numbness, and tingling in the hand due to nerve compression. The condition can be caused by a range of factors that include lifestyle conditions and work environments. In recent years, the excessive use of hand-held devices like mobiles has resulted in a dramatic increase of the condition. Fortunately, this condition is easy to treat and can be reversed with simple interventions if caught early. Even in more severe cases, the treatment has a good prognosis with most patients recovering the full range of motion of their wrist.

    Carpal tunnel syndrome conditions are classified as follows.

    Grade 0- Normal

    Grade 1- Very mild

    Grade 2 – Mild, can be detected with most sensitive tests

    Grade 3 – Moderate, nerve conduction test shows slow velocity on finger/wrist

    Grade 4 – Severe

    Grade 5 – Very severe

    Grade 6 – Extremely severe

    • Fracture, injury, or dislocation of the wrist
    • Fluid retention due to health conditions like diabetes, thyroid, and kidney disorders 
    • Occupational risk factors- Using hand tools that vibrate or work where the same wrist movements are repeated over a long time. 
    • Smaller carpal tunnel area in women
    • Carpal Tunnel Syndrome could increase the extent of damage to the median nerve and cause permanent disabilities. 

    The complications in carpal tunnel treatment depend on the severity of the condition and other underlying health conditions. There are possibilities of developing carpal tunnel syndrome in both hands

    In case of mild symptoms, special care should be taken to not add strain to the wrist by avoiding activities that involve repetitive wrist actions. It is advisable to wear a splint at night to keep the hand in a neutral position. If the condition worsens and the feeling of numbness in the hand persists, immediate medical help should be sought. Consulting a doctor in case of severe carpal tunnel pain is crucial.

    Carpal tunnel release surgery will be recommended by the physician in case of constant numbness, muscle weakness, or atrophy. Surgical treatment cannot be avoided in case of such severe symptoms. The procedure involves cutting through the ligament pressing the carpal tunnel. The surgery can be done under local or general anesthesia. Post-surgical care might involve using a wrist splint and a light compression dressing. Doctors recommend the resumption of the normal use of the hand at a slow pace. Physical therapy might also be required to strengthen the wrist. Recovery time after the surgery could take several weeks.

    The pressure on the carpal tunnel that can cause CTS is due to repetitive wrist movements, health conditions like hyperthyroidism, rheumatoid arthritis, or diabetes. Preventing CTS can be therefore easy if these conditions are treated and risk factors are eliminated or controlled. Adjusting daily routines and working habits to reduce strain on the wrist and minimizing repetitive hand movements can also help avoid the condition. Lifestyle changes like being physically active, reducing smoking and alcohol consumption are also necessary measures to prevent carpal tunnel syndrome.
