Carpal Tunnel Release (CTR)
You are able to move the fingers of your hand because of nerves and tendons running through a narrow passage or “tunnel” in your wrist. If you already have a small carpal tunnel or have injured or overused this part of your arm, pressure on the nerve can cause you to experience tingling and numbness in your hand. Eventually, the condition becomes painful and can even impact function. A carpal tunnel release can alleviate symptoms and restore normal function.
