Did you know that there are multiple causes of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome? While repetitive activity is a common cause, if you find your symptoms worsening, or if you’re not finding relief from over-the-counter treatments such as the Carpal Comfort Roll-On, we recommend you see your doctor. ⠀
While this is a rare situation, Dr. Penello recently treated a patient that had rapidly progressing symptoms of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, including severe wrist pain and tingling in the fingers. Through diagnostic imaging Dr. Penello determined that the cause of the patient’s Carpal Tunnel Syndrome was a wrist cyst. The cyst was taking up space within the carpal tunnel and compressing the nerve, causing classic symptoms of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome. ⠀
The patient underwent a successful surgery to remove the cyst and re-gained normal function in the wrist, hand and fingers.
