Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

Carpal tunnel syndrome is a condition in which the median nerve in your wrist becomes compressed and causes pain, numbness, and weakness in the hand and fingers. It is often associated with repetitive movements involving the hands and wrists. Up until recently, the only treatment options included wrist splints, anti-inflammatory drugs, or invasive surgery.

We at New England Health and Wellness are proud to offer a noninvasive, in-office procedure that provides fast results. It involves minimal pain and only takes about 30-40 minutes. Patients are able to return to their regular activities within hours.

Nerve hydrodissection is performed by using ultrasound guidance to inject a solution, mostly comprised of saline, around the injured nerve. The surrounding tissue that adheres to the nerve is released from the nerve, relieving numbness, tingling, and pain. The surrounding tissue is then perforated using the needle to prevent the symptoms from quickly recurring.
