In many cases, carpal tunnel treatment in Atlanta does not involve surgery. Dr. Patel may recommend reducing pressure on the nerve by:

  • Identifying and treating medical conditions as a carpal tunnel treatment in Atlanta
  • Changing the pattern of hand use as a carpal tunnel treatment in Atlanta
  • Keeping the wrist splinted in a straight position as a carpal tunnel treatment in Atlanta
  • Wearing a splint at night as a carpal tunnel treatment in Atlanta

Dr. Patel may also suggest administering a steroid injection into the carpal tunnel to help relieve the symptoms and reduce swelling around the nerves. If your symptoms are severe or do not improve, surgery may be necessary as a carpal tunnel treatment in Atlanta.

Carpal tunnel surgery decreases the pressure on the nerve by cutting the ligament that forms the roof (top) of the tunnel on the palm side of the hand. Incisions for this surgery may vary, but the goal of this carpal tunnel treatment in Atlanta is to enlarge the tunnel and decrease the pressure on the nerve.

Following carpal tunnel surgery, soreness around the incision may last for several weeks or months. The numbness and tingling may disappear quickly or slowly. It may take several months for the strength in the hand and wrist to return to normal, and symptoms may not completely go away after surgery, especially in severe cases.
