Treatments We Provide
During open surgery, the surgeon cuts the wrist open and cuts the tissue pressing on the nerve. This relieves the pressure on the nerve.
An injection in the area of pain sends steroids directly to the source. Your doctor may suggest a single injection or a series over several weeks. If your pain is higher than you can really tolerate, this might be for you.
Our Hand Therapy program provides specialized rehabilitation in treating pain and injuries of the hand, wrist, elbow or splinting. Our program includes one-on-one rehabilitation sessions as well as education to reduce the risk of further injury. Call us 616.267.0357.
A brace or wrap can help relieve pain from carpal tunnel. Your doctor can recommend the best type to stabilize and protect your hand and wrist. You may avoid surgery completely, or use it as a pain reliever while you wait for your surgery.
Outpatient rehabilitation services are offered in a variety of settings and locations to ensure you receive the best treatment options available. Conditions we treat range from sports-related injuries and post-surgical conditions to general sprains and strains from everyday living.
