Diagnosing Carpal Tunnel Syndrome: Diagnostic Test Accuracy of Scales, Questionnaires, and Hand Symptom Diagrams —A Systematic Review
Journal of Orthopaedic&Sports Physical Therapy, Ahead of Print.
CONCLUSIONS: In the long term, manual therapy including desensitization maneuvers of the central nervous system resulted in similar outcomes and similar surgery rates compared to surgery in women with CTS. Both interventions were combined with a tendon/nerve gliding exercise program at home. IMPACT: This is the first study to report clinical outcomes and surgical rates during a 4-year follow-up and will inform decisions regarding surgical versus conservative management of CTS.

CONCLUSIONS: In the early CTS, with sensory fibers damage, use of dietary integrator, such as Micronil Dol®, composed composed of acetyl-L-carnitine, α-lipoic acid,quercetin, bromelain, pantothenic acid, C and B1 and B2 and B6 and B12 vitamins can be effective in quick recovery of median nerve sensory.

The American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons and the American Society for Surgery of the Hand developed candidate quality measures for potential inclusion in the Merit-Based Incentive Program and National Quality Forum in the hope that hand surgeons could report specialty-specific data. The following measures regarding the management of carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS) were developed using a Delphi consensus process: (1) use of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) for diagnosis of CTS, (2) use of adjunctive surgical procedures during carpal tunnel release (CTR), and (3) use of formal occupational and/or physical therapy after CTR.

The objective of this study was to evaluate baseline use, the change in use, variation in prescribing patterns by region, and costs for PT/OT after common hand procedures.
D3 student, might be showing signs of carpel tunnel. Currently doing physical therapy since they are in consistent pain/numbness. Hows long term looking?
