Patients routinely come to us with complaints of numbness and tingling in their hands from repetitive tasks such as working on the computer.
The obvious next questions are always, “Do I have carpal tunnel?” and “Will I need surgery?”
Those are scary questions when you are not sure what your symptoms mean and what you need to do about your hand pain.
Not so soon to worry!
There are many common, low-severity, non-operative causes of hand pain and numbness. These include, but are not limited to: neck spasm, poor sleep positions, chest muscle tightness, stiffness of muscles in the forearm, and nerve or vascular compression NOT in the carpal tunnel that can develop from work and sport activities.
If you have the occasional pins and needles feeling in your hand, please consult with us at Great Moves today. We will make sure that the correct tests are performed, either in our clinic or by another clinician if necessary, to ensure that you know what is causing your symptoms so they can be treated immediately and appropriately.
