Research shows that the carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS) occurs in between 4 and 10 million people in the United States. Hoang Tran, an occupational therapist specializing in carpal tunnel treatment in Miami, admits it is among the top conditions treated each year at the Hands-on Therapy Clinic.
Carpal tunnel syndrome is a common nerve condition that can severely affect the hand and wrist. It occurs when the median nerve is pinched or compressed. The symptoms include numbness, tingling, thumb weakness, and pain in the first three fingers or thumb.
Carpal tunnel syndrome ranges from mild to severe, the progression tends to come slowly and gets worse over time. But, early detection and treatment can prevent the syndrome from getting worse and reduce the recovery period. Appropriate treatment often restores hand and wrist function whilst relieving its symptoms.
