What happens after Carpal Tunnel Release Surgery

Carpal Tunnel Release Surgery has been very effective in relieving persistent Carpal Tunnel Syndrome symptoms. There is an improvement in approximately 98% of all patients after Carpal Tunnel Release Surgery. This is consistently an excellent way to treat Carpal Tunnel Syndrome which has failed to respond to conservative measures.

I found in my practice that patients initially have mild weakness in their hand after surgery which is alleviated with a focused physical therapy strengthening program. Mild discomfort at the surgical incision is relieved with a scar massage program, along with physical therapy.

It is imperative that patients not only go to therapy three times per week for four weeks after surgery, but that they are compliant with their home therapy programs.

Peace & Health
