About Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
The median nerve travels from the spinal cord through the arm to serve the wrist and hand. The final nerve tunnel it travels through, is the carpal tunnel in the wrist. This space, created by ligaments and bone, can become narrowed by swelling or inflammation, putting pressure on the median nerve. When the median nerve becomes irritated in the wrist, it is called carpal tunnel syndrome.
"Dr. Maniam is great and you took care of my knee. My knee feeks great and i can walk again. The visit was beautiful and they treat me with respect."- K.D. / Google / May 18, 2021
"On first arrival Dr. Kohler and his staff at Ospina Medicine were warm and welcoming. He was precise in his knowledge and explained all parts of both my pain management due to previous injury, and preventative measures for future treatment. Their New York City based state of the art technology and contemporary office made me feel at ease immediately. As someone with continual back pain, and as someone who wants to avoid opioid treatment, the very nature of Ospina Medical using non-opioid approaches to pain management for me was a big bonus. The results have been brilliant, and I am so pleased to have Dr. Kohler to help me through my pain management process."- M.M. / Google / May 17, 2021
"The nicest people, the best care. I feel so much better already. Would recommend to any and all friends, dancers, athletes, who are having pain."- C.J. / Google / May 14, 2021
"Dr Maniam and his staff are excellent. Renya at the front desk is always friendly and makes me feel comfortable. There’s a real sense that they care about their patients. I’ve had numerous spinal epidural‘s and radio frequency ablations, they’ve been painless and have gotten excellent results. This is the best pain management group that I’ve been to and I’ve been to more than a few... I highly recommend Ospina!"- M.G. / Google / May 14, 2021
"I've had 3 cortisone injections with Ospina and I'm amazed by the care they take when applying the injections. I can't believe how well it works and what good care they take of me. (I had received an injection somewhere else and it was more painful, bruised badly, and didn't last near as long.) I will ONLY go to Ospina now. The staff and doctors are truly WONDERFUL. Don't hesitate!"- P.G. / Google / Apr 30, 2021
Symptoms of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
Carpal tunnel syndrome can cause pain, numbness, tingling and weakness in the wrist or hands. The median nerve connects to the thumb, pointer, middle and part of the ring finger. The most common cause of carpal tunnel syndrome is repetitive motions requiring the wrist to bend forward, like typing! Other repetitive wrist movements and certain health conditions, like diabetes and osteoarthritis, can contribute to causing carpal tunnel nerve compression.

Relieving pressure on the median nerve may relieve symptoms. Physical therapy and exercises offer help for minor conditions.
