Carpal Tunnel Syndrome PRP Treatment
When the median nerve is pinched or compressed as it travels through the wrist, carpal tunnel syndrome develops. The median nerve transmits information about feelings in your thumb and fingers back to your brain and regulates some of the muscles that move your thumb. When the nerve is compressed, the affected hand may experience tingling, numbness, discomfort, or soreness. Carpal tunnel syndrome is more prevalent in women than in men. All ages are affected by the disorder, however persons over 50 are more likely to get it.
Carpal tunnel syndrome symptoms include:
- 1. Sudden shock-like sensation, tingling, burning sensation and even numbness in the index, thumb, ring, and middle fingers
- 2. Pain that occasionally radiates to the shoulder
- 3. The hand's clumsiness and weakness make it challenging to carry out daily tasks
- 4. Dropping objects as a result of numbness, wrist weakness, and even proprioception loss
With no prior injury, the symptoms start up unexpectedly. The majority of the time, the patients discover that the symptoms first come and go, but as the illness worsens, the symptoms become more common and last for longer periods of time. Due to the majority of people sleeping with their wrists bent, the symptoms primarily manifest at night. In addition, if the symptoms get worse, they may cause the patient to wake up.
Carpal tunnel syndrome is brought on by pressure on the median nerve. Carpal tunnel syndrome may be caused by anything that compresses or irritates the median nerve in the carpal tunnel. Both a fractured wrist and rheumatoid arthritis' swelling and inflammation can cause the carpal tunnel to shrink and irritate the nerve.
The diagnosis of carpal tunnel syndrome
Most likely, your doctor will inquire about your symptoms. He or she might examine you and inquire about your handwriting. Your physician could instruct you to bend your wrist downward for one minute. An electromyography (EMG) test or a nerve conduction test may be prescribed by your doctor. These tests are used to determine whether the nerves and muscles in your arm and hand exhibit the usual carpal tunnel syndrome symptoms.
PRP Therapy for Carpal Tunnel Syndrome:
Carpal tunnel syndrome is now frequently treated with platelet-rich plasma therapy, or PRP. It takes around 30 minutes to complete the operation. The injured location is treated with an injection of PRP. Growth factors included in PRP aid in the healing of the median nerve. There is no risk of an allergic reaction to PRP because it is made from the patient's own body. Additionally, PRP heals the wounded area more quickly than any other therapy or form of treatment.
