Long days at the desk have proven to have a negative effect on your health. Whether it’s too much sitting, too much standing, or perhaps too much typing, more and more studies are coming back that suggest healthier lifestyle options while at your work. Ergonomics and healthy work habits are now important topics that occupational safety are continually trying to adjust and make better. Unfortunately, not all desk jobs are quite there yet. If you work a desk job or do a lot of typing at home, it’s possible that you have developed carpal tunnel syndrome from typing. At Advanced Medical of Twin Cities, we aim to help those dealing with carpal tunnel in the Minneapolis, MN area. If you have carpal tunnel syndrome, it’s time you work to find some relief. Studies show that carpal tunnel syndrome is not permanent and surgery is not necessary.
What is Carpal Tunnel Syndrome?
At Advanced Medical of Twin Cities, we not only work to alleviate symptoms of your ailments, but we aim to actually correct it. Often times, providers will try to mask your symptoms but not heal and correct your issue. In order to provide relief to your carpal tunnel syndrome, we must first understand what it is. Within the front of your wrist, there is a narrow passage that one of your larger nerves passes through, the median nerve. Many people believe that those who frequently type or perform other repetitive motions with their hands and wrists are at risk for inflammation in this area. Once this area is inflamed, it aggravates the median nerve, causing carpal tunnel syndrome.

Carpal tunnel syndrome can cause the following symptoms:
● Pain in the hands, wrist and forearm
