Manhattan Experts with Carpal Tunnel Syndrome Injections, performed by Matthew Spiegel, MD


Carpal Tunnel Syndrome (CTS) is a common condition that causes pain, numbness, and tingling in the hand and arm due to compression of the median nerve in the wrist. Injections for carpal tunnel syndrome are a non-surgical treatment option that can help relieve the symptoms of CTS and take only a few minutes to complete. There are two types of injections used for CTS: corticosteroid injections and nerve blocks. Corticosteroid injections contain a type of anti-inflammatory medication that can help reduce swelling and inflammation in the wrist, which can relieve pressure on the median nerve. Nerve blocks are injections, using local anesthetics, to numb the nerve, temporarily stopping the transmission of pain signals to the brain.
