    injured

    If you are unable to help yourself call 911.

  • Does typing at the Keyboard cause Carpal Tunnel Syndrome?

    carpal-full

    These days we spend a lot of time on the computer.  Although there is no study proving that typing increases incidence of carpal tunnel syndrome, anything causing swelling of the flexor tendons (the tendons moving the fingers) will put pressure on the median nerve and thus cause carpal tunnel syndrome.

    If you experience numbness, tingling of thumb, index, middle, and ring finger – you may have carpal tunnel syndrome.

    Night time pain is a consistent hallmark of more advanced carpal tunnel syndrome.

    Sleeping with splints is the single best non-surgical option.

  • What you should do if you notice a mass/bump on your hand

    First take a deep breath because the majority of tumors / masses are benign.  You should always have it checked out by a professional, sooner than later.  Some characteristics / history that is important to tell your doctor:  Was it caused by an injury or trauma? How long have you noticed it?  Is it rapidly getting larger or is it a constant size?  Is it painful? Does it affect the motion of your hand?
