Carpal Tunnel Syndrome is a condition that causes hand pain, wrist pain and forearm pain. Carpal Tunnel Syndrome occurs when the connecting nerves from the hands to the forearms become compressed. This nerve is called the median nerve. Carpal Tunnel is a part of the hand where the ligaments and bones meet in the wrist.
When there is compression, irritation or swelling of the nerve, which passes through the carpal tunnel, Carpal Tunnel Syndrome may be present.
Carpal Tunnel Syndrome is commonly seen in patients who overuse their hands and wrists, especially in repetitive motions. Some things that can cause a flare up include typing on a keyboard, playing piano and writing. Other times, Carpal Tunnel Syndrome may be due to an injury such as a wrist sprain.
While anyone can be affected by Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, it is more common in middle aged women and patients with Arthritis.

I highly recommend The Spine & Rehab Group and Dr. Mehta for anyone suffering. I've had chronic lower back pain for the past ten years. Over the past two years it's been unbearable. I've received multiple steroid injections (from a previous facility) to no avail. Since I've been under the care of Dr. Mehta I've experienced the most relief, he's performed 2 Medial Branch Blocks as well as 2 RFA procedures and for the first time I feel like there is a light at the end my pain tunnel. Dr. Mehta is incredibly talented, he makes you feel very at ease and explains things thoroughly. The entire staff is amazing. They definitely take care of you and make you feel at home. I would truly recommend this facility to anyone who is seeking pain free living.Sara Simmons
