The Carpal Tunnel Clinic
At your initial visit you will be assessed by our Specialist Clinical Practitioner to diagnose your condition and recommend the best form of treatment options for you. This may include specialised tests including imaging studies, nerve studies as well as clinical assessment.
If you already have a referral from your General Practitioner, we would still recommend a visit with our Specialist Clinical Practitioner, who may refer you for any of the above tests or studies.
If you required nerve conduction studies, we can arrange for these to be performed by one of our recommended Neurologists.
You can elect to be treated within the fortnight or at a time that is suitable for you,
if you require surgery.
Non -surgical treatment may be facilitated by Occupational Therapy or splinting and occasionally will require Injections.
Below is a diagram of the process that will take place when you start your journey at
The Carpal Tunnel Clinic.
The Characteristic Symptoms Of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
The three top characteristics of carpal tunnel syndrome are:
Numbness and tingling in the median nerve distribution, usually the thumb, index and middle fingers.
Night numbness / tingling.
Weakness / Wasting of the thumb muscles.
Trigger Finger Release
Trigger Finger is caused by inflammation of the tenosynovium. Inflammation forms a nodule and makes it difficult for the tendon to glide smoothly, causing a catching of the finger.
