Carpal Tunnel & Wrist Pain Specialists in Atlanta, Georgia

Carpal tunnel syndrome is a common condition that causes weakness, numbness, and tingling in the hand, wrist, and fingers. The carpal tunnel is located in the wrist, and is designed to protect the main nerve in your hand. Carpal tunnel syndrome occurs when this median nerve is pinched or compressed due to swelling, inflammation, or other potential causes. At Atlanta Innovative Medicine (AIM), our Carpal Tunnel & Wrist Pain Specialists are trained to diagnose and treat this condition effectively.

Causes for Carpal Tunnel & Wrist Pain

The risk factors associated with carpal tunnel syndrome can include:

  • Rheumatoid arthritis
  • Diabetes
  • Obesity
  • Repetitive stress
  • Genetic predisposition
  • Gender (more common in women)

Symptoms for Carpal Tunnel & Wrist Pain

Carpal tunnel syndrome is characterized by a numbness or tingling in in the fingers or hand. The pinky finger actually uses a different nerve, so numbness in the other four fingers is a telltale sign of carpal tunnel syndrome. This numbness or tingling starts gradually, and generally comes and goes in the early stages.
Another common symptom of this condition is weakness in the hand or fingers, especially the thumb, along with an increased tendency to drop things. This is because the median nerve controls the pinching muscles in the thumb. Reduced strength can indicate more moderate or severe carpal tunnel syndrome, so it’s important to seek treatment immediately.

Treatment for Carpal Tunnel & Wrist Pain

Carpal tunnel syndrome is a very treatable condition. It’s vital to see a doctor if you have symptoms of carpal tunnel syndrome, as it can cause permanent damage if left untreated. The pain management experts at Atlanta Innovative Medicine offer a range of nonsurgical treatment options to help you achieve wrist pain relief.
