Carpal tunnel injections are used to deliver local anesthetics and anti-inflammatory steroids to soothe pain and reduce inflammation.
An estimated one in twenty adults develops hand pain, numbness, and tingling after a wrist trauma, repetitive motions, or an inflammatory illness. This condition is known as carpal tunnel syndrome. It starts when the median nerve, an important nerve that provides grip strength and feeling in the hand, is irritated. Pain specialists diagnose and treat carpal tunnel syndrome so you can be pain-free and recover the full use of your hand.
