Carpal tunnel injection is a pain management treatment recommended when your carpal tunnel syndrome is not responding well to conventional approaches like resting and wearing a splint. It uses steroid injections to the affected part to relieve pain and restore the mobility of your hand and wrist.
Carpal tunnel syndrome is the inflammation and compression of the median nerve that runs from your forearm to your hand. The compression or irritation of the median nerve causes tingling sensations, numbness, and pain in the hand and wrist area. It is a musculoskeletal disorder prevalent among factory workers and computer users where there is excessive repetitive use of the wrist.
Before a carpal tunnel injection, your physiatrist will take an ultrasound of your wrist to locate the affected area. Once the problem area has been located, a steroid and local anesthetic will be injected in your wrist. The steroid will help the inflammation subside and relieve the inflammation around the median nerve.
Carpal tunnel injection is a safe, non-surgical procedure that can be done in an outpatient setting. The duration of the treatment only lasts 15 to 30 minutes. A noticeable decrease in pain and tingling sensation will be found in the first 6 to 24 hours, and the steroid usually takes a few days to take effect.
