Stem Cell Therapy for Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

Carpal tunnel syndrome is a condition that develops when the median nerve gets compressed at the wrist. Symptoms include weakness or numbness in the palm and wrist, and radiating pain in the arm. A decreased grip strength and reduced sensation of hot and cold may result in some cases.

Stem Cells for Carpal Tunnel Causative factors of carpal tunnel syndrome include:

  • trauma to the wrist
  • overactive pituitary gland
  • hypothyroidism
  • rheumatoid arthritis
  • work stress, such as the continued usage of vibrating hand tools, writer’s cramp
  • fluid retention during pregnancy or menopause
  • cyst in the carpal tunnel.

Stem Cell Therapy for Carpal Tunnel SyndromeThe incidence of carpal tunnel syndrome is thrice more likely in women as compared with men, possibly due to the narrower carpal tunnel in women.

Carpal tunnel syndrome is diagnosed by the physical examination of the wrist (wrist-flexion test) and the muscles at the base of the hand, as well as the fingers for sensation. X-ray, ultrasound or MRI examination can be used to detect the presence of underlying factors, such as fractures, and damaged structures from diabetes or arthritis. Nerve activity can be evaluated through electrodiagnostic tests.

Management

If carpal tunnel syndrome is left untreated over a long time, the back thumb muscles may start to wear as well as permanent damage to the median nerve may be brought about.

Rest, the use of wrist splint, the application of cold, pain medications (aspirin, ibuprofen) and wrist exercises can help relief the symptoms of carpal tunnel syndrome. To reduce swelling of the area, oral diuretics and corticosteroids may be administered.

If a patient’s underlying causes, such as diabetes or arthritis, are known, these have to be managed in order to achieve control over carpal tunnel syndrome. Alternatve therapies, such as acupuncture and yoga, may also improve symptoms.

Surgery

Surgery is recommended for cases that do not resolve in 6 months. It is estimated that more than half a million patients undergo surgery for carpal tunnel syndrome in the US every year. Two types of surgery can be done—open release surgery and endoscopic surgery. Although surgery requires local anesthesia, it is an outpatient procedure, wherein an incision is made in the wrist to cut back ligaments and enlarge the carpal tunnel.
Stem Cell Therapy for Carpal Tunnel Syndromei
Most patients do not have a recurrence of symptoms following surgical intervention. However, recovery after surgery may take few months, and patients may be at risk for infection, nerve damage, and scar formation at the site. If wrist strength is compromised following surgery, physical therapy can be performed to improve wrist functionality.

Stem Cell Therapy

People who do not respond well to non-invasive treatment measures for carpal tunnel syndrome, may benefit from stem cell therapy. At R3 Stem Cell Clinics, we evaluate your case to offer you choices for healing your carpal tunnel syndrome through stem cells.

Both stem cell therapy as well as platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy have regenerative capacities to repair and heal damaged ligaments and tendons. Steroid injections are usually delivered to manage painful swelling at the site.Stem Cells for Spinal Disc

However, unlike steroid injections, stem cell therapy does not present detrimental side effects. Stem cells naturally secrete anti-inflammatory agents, which in turn provides relief of symptoms. In addition, by administering reparative stem cells, it is possible to avoid the long rehabilitation period following surgery.

There are several stem cell therapy options available at R3 Stem Cell clinics including:

  • Adipose or Bone Marrow Derived Stem Cell Therapy
  • Amniotic Stem Cell Therapy
  • Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy
