Carpal tunnel syndrome is a common ailment that affects millions of people. If your hands often go to sleep in a somewhat painful way, there is a possibility that you have developed carpal tunnel. Thankfully, at Athens Brain and Spine, we have several different treatment options ranging from simply wearing a stint when you sleep to taking medication that reduces the inflammation. If your symptoms are severe enough, surgery might be your only option; however, it is an outpatient procedure that usually takes only 10 minutes, and we'll have you back to your normal routine in a couple weeks. If carpal tunnel is affecting your daily life, you don't have to live in pain anymore. Let Dr. Walpert give you your life back.
