Tendons and Nerves



Carpal Tunnel Treatment | Detroit | Shelby Township | WarrenThe tendons and nerves within your hands and wrists are sensitive structures that may be susceptible to several different types of conditions when they are irritated or impinged by certain factors.  Pressure on these structures caused by obesity, stress, injury or overuse can cause painful symptoms that are further aggravated by the constant use of our hands and wrists, and may interfere with performing simple tasks in your everyday life.

These conditions, such as tendonitis, carpal tunnel syndrome or DeQuervain's disease, can cause pain, swelling, stiffness, weakness, numbness and tingling in the wrist, hand and fingers, and sometimes radiating through the arm as well.  Tendonitis of the wrist involves irritation and swelling of the tissues surrounding the tendons of the wrist and thumb.  This usually causes pain in the wrist and when bending or extending it. Finger tendinitis causes locking, clicking and pain in movement in movement or use of finger. 

Damaged tendons and nerves can usually be effectively treated through conservative methods that may include rest, immobilization, occupational therapy or medications.  More severe cases may require surgery to repair damage that does not respond to other treatment.  Most nerve and tendon damage can be repaired when diagnosed early so it is important to seek thorough medical treatment in order to prevent permanent damage.

You can prevent many tendon and nerve issues by taking regular breaks from working, exercising your hands to promote strength and mobility, and practicing correct posture and form while working.  Talk to your doctor to learn more about how to prevent these conditions.
