Carpal Tunnel Screenings at hand to shoulder texas

Our hands and arms are essential to our daily lives, yet so very often we put up with them when they are in pain and discomfort. 
A majority of the reason people ignore their symptoms is either:

  • They did not know what they had was a medical condition, they thought it was just "part of aging" 
  • They never knew how to start the conversation with their PCP or where to go to get help for their condition
  • They couldn't find the time to start the process of figuring out what was going on. 

We want to change this. The Hand to Shoulder Center has proudly launched a public educational screening program to bring the tools and resources to our community to help get them answers and be a starting point to alleviating their conditions. 

Ultrasound technology has been around for decades, but as most people recognized, it was mainly used for pregnancies or diagnosis within the hospital. This technology is now being utilized as a more convenient and comfortable way to identify carpal tunnel. Studies have shown what the median nerve should measure with no indications of inflammation, by comparing that to the measurements and symptoms a patient is extressing, our doctors are able to easily identify a patient suffering from carpal tunnel syndrome. 

Taking it to the Public

We have had the pleasure of being hosted by many companies and cities around the area to offer private carpal tunnel screenings to their employees. We are able to get them appointments booked on site of the screening, usually seeing them within the same week. 
After the visit, the patient is given the proper treatment to be able to get the relief they deserve. If they are determined to need surgery, our doctors have mastered the technique of Carpal Tunnel Release and can get them back to work quicker!

As we are reaching more and more people, we hear very common stories of people waking up in the middle of the night with numb hands, people having to stop in the middle of their work day to shake their arms awake, they are having a hard time gripping their mouse, or they are dropping their coffee cups in the morning. All of these are very common symptoms of carpal tunnel and are often overlooked. 
Bringing the screening to our patients' workplace is a convenience and a comfort. There is no pressure of being at a new place and not knowing what is going on. It also acts as a way to bring awareness of conditions and how to be more efficient in the workplace with hand health.
