Carpal tunnel syndrome is a hand and arm condition that causes numbness, tingling and other symptoms. Carpal tunnel syndrome is caused by a pinched nerve in your wrist. Common carpal tunnel syndrome symptoms include tingling and numbness in your fingers and hand and hand weakness.
Beyond rest and ice packs, treatment for carpel tunnel syndrome can include splinting, medications and for severe cases, surgery. Because surgery can be expensive and isn’t guaranteed to correct carpal tunnel syndrome, some patients are seeking out adult stem therapy to address inflammation that might be pinching the nerve, thereby relieving the symptoms of carpal tunnel syndrome.
