When you first go to your physician, he will diagnose your condition to understand how serious it is. For patients whose condition is at the primary level, doctors suggest using wrist friendly office supplies. These include gelatin mouse-pads, specialized keyboards, amongst other things. You will also be advised to take frequent breaks from your work, to rest your wrist. For treatment of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome (CTS), many doctors suggest to immobilize the wrist, ice and use drugs (diuretics or anti-inflammatories). If the symptoms persist, corticosteroids may be injected into the hand or wrist. This may provide temporary relief of the symptoms (pain, numbness), but will not prevent a relapse. There may also be side effects.
Can personality play a role? What is “personality” anyway? It has been defined as those character, behavioral, temperamental, emotional and mental traits that make each person unique – those distinctive qualities of a person, especially those distinguishing personal characteristics that make us unique. There is no standard onset. Carpal Tunnel Syndrome can come on slowly or suddenly. However, the best advice for those who suspect they are showing symptoms: don’t ignore it. It is always a mistake with CTS to “tough it out,” ignoring the pain.When I got home, I had to take off the bandage to take a shower. It hurt like hell. After showering, I put the Ace Bandage back on, very lightly with very little pressure, and I realize that my hand did not have any pain in my wrist, and it was actually “setting” in place for recovery. So I used that hand as little as possible, but did not keep it elevated.
When you have this condition, you will experience numbness, a tingling or prickling sensation such as pins and needles, and weakness or pain coming from the affected area. Most of these cases are just temporary and will right themselves after a while. If you slept on your arm or hand for a long time, there will be minor tingling sensations on your hand when you wake up. You might ask “When should I opt for surgery and when should I try chiropractic?” When it comes to health problems there are always two options drugs and surgery (the allopathic medical model) or chiropractic, acupuncture, massage or nutrition-the holistic natural model. Common sense would tell you to try the least invasive, safest procedure first and the riskiest, more possible side effects option second.
Excessive sweaty hands can be a pain in the butt both in social settings and everyday activities such as shaking hands, writing on paper, opening a door, driving, signing your name or holding hands. These are just a few examples of how over-active hand sweating can affect a person. One percent of our population from around the world are looking for a way to stop their hands from sweating. Another critical pair of terms used when describing sides of the hand (or even wrist and forearm) is radial and ulnar. These terms are named after the radius and ulna bones in the forearm; the two long bones of the forearm, between the elbow and the wrist.
