Carpal Tunnel Release

Carpal tunnel syndrome is a condition in which the nerve that provides sensation to most of your fingers becomes compressed at the wrist. Carpal tunnel syndrome causes pain, numbness and tingling in the thumb, fingers, and palm. It can result in loss of grip strength, coordination, dropping objects, and other issues of the hand. When left untreated, carpal tunnel can even lead to weakness and loss of movement in the hand.  Many things can lead to carpal tunnel, including repetitive motion with the hands, trauma to the wrist, and sleeping with your wrists bent. 

 

Unfortunately, traditional methods of treatment have long recovery times (up to 2 months or longer), excessive pain, and cost. However, there is a better method available for treating carpal tunnel syndrome.

 

Dr. Peterson treats carpal tunnel syndrome with a spectrum of options including braces, topical agents, injections, or if needed, a minimally-invasive surgical technique for relief. This minimally-invasive technique can be done in the office, under local anesthesia, which results in a much more affordable treatment option. Using an ultrasound, Dr. Peterson can evaluate in clinic whether you will be a good candidate for this minimally-invasive approach. This means most patients will not require EMG testing. This eliminates extra visits, extra testing, and extra cost. Dr. Peterson's minimally-invasive technique has an average recovery time of 2 days. Not only is Vitality's price less than most other centers, but your expedited recovery will get you back to work faster.
