Beware of Misleading Information on Carpal tunnel

We Provide Expert Carpal Tunnel Education

This website is heavily referenced with an annotated CTS bibliography to substantiate the facts herein presented upon request. Carpal Tunnel Syndrome (CTS) is one of the most commonly diagnosed problems in America ultimately affecting about one in six adults. Our grandparents suffered too but they were forced to accept the misdiagnosis (or self-diagnosis) of arthritis. Painful and/or numb or tingling fingers can be just the start. Many people also experience grip change (due to pain or associated ulnar nerve dysfunction), clumsiness, and symptoms that keep them awake at night.

Carpal Tunnel Causes and Symptoms

Carpal Tunnel Syndrome is caused by pressure on the median nerve at the wrist.

Symptoms typically arise after age 30 or during pregnancy. Women outnumber men 2:1 in developing CTS. Carpal tunnel syndrome is found to affect both hands in more than two thirds of those afflicted.

Research shows that conservative care (euphemistically termed "benign neglect") fails in more than 80% of the cases. Surgery remains the only definitive solution. For those who refuse to solve the problem sacrifices in activity level such as giving up sewing etc. are made. At the Carpal Tunnel Relief Center we offer a minimally invasive procedure. The Lincoln office is the only facility in the United States founded with the exclusive goal of relieving the effects of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome.
