Part one – Carpel Tunnel Syndrome
Carpal tunnel syndrome gives tingling in the thumb, first finger, middle finger and the palm of the effected hand. Never in the little finger. So if you have tingling in these three fingers with minimal pain then there is a good chance it is carpal tunnel. Carpal tunnel syndrome is compression of the nerve that runs through your wrist. This compression can be from the wrist bones, the fascia, swelling such as fluid retention (common in pregnancy) or a thickening of the tendons. Often it can be relieved by non-invasive stretching and mobilization such as performed by Chiropractors and Physio, so try this before surgery.
My next blog will be about tingling on the outside of the hand.
