The effects of nerve and tendon gliding exercises combined with low-level laser or ultrasound therapy in carpal tunnel syndrome
Conclusions: The results of this study may suggest the clinical efficacy of LLLT or ultrasound combined with gliding exercises in patients with mild to moderate CTS.
ConclusionPlatelet-rich plasma could be effective treatment of mild to moderate idiopathic CTS and superior to corticosteroid in improving pain, function, and distal sensory latency of median nerve.Trial registrationClinicalTrials.gov Identifier: NCT03863873Key Points:•PRP is effective treatment of mild to moderate CTS.•PRP is superior to corticosteroids in improving pain and function in CTS.

AbstractPurpose of ReviewCarpal tunnel syndrome (CTS) is an entrapment neuropathy that involves the compression of the median nerve at the wrist and is considered the most common of all focal entrapment mononeuropathies. CTS makes up 90% of all entrapment neuropathies diagnosed in the USA and affects millions of Americans.Recent FindingsAge and gender likely play a role in the development of CTS, but additional studies may further elucidate these associations. Of known associated risk factors, diabetes mellitus seems to have the greatest association with CTS. One of the most commonly reported symptoms in CTS is a “pi...
I wanted to pick the collective mind of IPM on SDN. I have an 85 year old female. Chief complaint burning pain of bilateral feet (specifically the soles). Pain is worse at night. Worked up relatively well by her PCP, podiatrist, and two neurologists. Has had adverse effects with gabapentin, Lyrica, and duloxetine. BMP, CBC, B12, folate, TSH, A1C, all unremarkable. EMG of upper and lower extremities shows sensory neuropathy and what is most likely mild carpal tunnel of the wrist... Burning Feet
CONCLUSIONS: This study demonstrates that mini-incision carpal tunnel release is clinically effective in the short and long term. PMID: 31336424 [PubMed]
ConclusionSome of the tests in the CST can detect somatosensory dysfunction as determined with QST. Parts of the CST could therefore be used as a low ‐cost screening tool in a clinical setting.This article is protected by copyright. All rights reserved.
