Surgical Carpal Tunnel Treatment Options
In some cases, the above treatments will yield little or no relief. If your pain has become unbearable, and your symptoms have persisted for 6 to 12 months with constant (not intermittent) numbness, then you may be a candidate for carpal tunnel surgery.
Understand that Surgical Treatment is a last resort, but has a track record for providing significant relief in 85 – 95% of all cases. As with all surgeries there will be risks, so be informed about your options when speaking to your physician.
Finally, stay optimistic on your road to recovery. Many have gone down this path before, and have recovered completely.
