Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

Nowadays a very common complaint, especially for office workers and those of us who spend a lot of time at computers, carpal tunnel syndrome occurs when the nerve that runs from the forearm to the palm of the hand, becomes squeezed at the wrist. While some non-surgical treatments can be used to rectify this ailment, carpal tunnel surgery is normally recommended when the patient experiences numbness, tingling or pain for more than six months. While surgery is normally performed as a day procedure, other health complications can mean that the patient needs to stay overnight in hospital to recover from carpal tunnel surgery.
