About Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
The median nerve that travels from the spinal cord through the arm to serve the wrist and hand also travels through the carpal tunnel in the wrist. This space, created by ligaments and bone, can become narrowed by swelling or inflammation, putting pressure on the median nerve, which controls the movements in the hand and is connected to all of the fingers except the pinky. As symptoms progress, it can lead to muscle pain and cramping that runs from the hand up into the arm. At Pain Zero, our team utilizes top techniques to treat carpal tunnel syndrome and improve uncomfortable symptoms. Contact one of our offices in Central Ohio to schedule a consultation with one of our highly trained physicians.
How Is Carpal Tunnel Syndrome Treated?
Relieving pressure on the median nerve may relieve some symptoms. Physical therapy and other exercises also help. Our office specializes in treating carpal tunnel syndrome with injections and perform carpal tunnel release with ultrasound guidance, which improves the imaging resolution as an incision is made in the palm to cut through the carpal tunnel ligament and relieve pressure on the median nerve. This innovative procedure can be done without anesthesia and virtually requires no downtime.

Carpal Tunnel Syndrome FAQ
Can carpal tunnel syndrome affect both hands simultaneously?
Yes, carpal tunnel syndrome can affect both hands, although it commonly starts in one hand first—often the dominant one. Even if you're currently experiencing symptoms in only one hand, it's important to be vigilant and consult with a physician at Pain Zero if symptoms appear in the other hand.
Is the carpal tunnel release procedure safe for pregnant women?
While carpal tunnel symptoms often worsen during pregnancy due to fluid retention, the carpal tunnel release procedure is generally considered safe. However, in many cases, doctors at Pain Zero prefer to start with less invasive treatments like physical therapy or wrist splints, especially for pregnant patients. Always consult with your physician for personalized advice tailored to your situation.
What's the recovery time for ultrasound-guided carpal tunnel release?
One of the advantages of ultrasound-guided carpal tunnel release is that it virtually requires no downtime. Many patients experience immediate relief and can return to their normal activities shortly after the procedure. However, it's always best to consult your physician for personalized recovery guidelines.
