Managing Carpal Tunnel with Neurometrix Advance

Carpal Tunnel is one of the most common conditions treated by the health service. The symptoms of numbness and pain in the fingers are caused by a compression of a ligament in the wrist. Providing it is diagnosed early the treatment patients can expect to receive is excellent, be it conservative via splinting or injections or through a minor surgical procedure.

The difficulty in gaining this early diagnosis is the delay patients can receive in having their condition assessed through a nerve conduction study. This test localises the compression, grades the severity of the symptoms and enables the clinical team to rule out other conditions that may cause the symptoms, such as compression in the elbow or neck or a diabetic polyneuropathy.

Joint Operations are delighted to offer hand units and GP’s the ability to carry out a nerve conduction test in clinic and receive the results immediately. This is enabled through the use of the Neurometrix Advance system.
