Compression Neuropathy

Compression Neuropathy

Compression neuropathy Treatment

Carpal Tunnel Syndrome is has become a common enough term that the number of problems are actually multiplying. The main reason for compression neuropathy problems to occur is due to the persistent recurrence of RSI, or Repetitive Stress Injuries, as the body is not used to forced compression on a particular part repetitively over time. As a result of repetitive activities to a particular region of the body the radial and medial nerves start to fail or weaken. In the hand the surgery processes are usually entrapment surgery or minimal access surgical techniques to correct the issues.

What is Compression Neuropathy

Compression Neuropathy is actually a fascinating condition, that is basically compression at a particular point in the upper limb for prolonged periods of time. As a result the nerves start to become morbid and slowly the motor reflexes start to die. This leads to marked reduction in function and if left untreated may lead to an irreversible condition even.

The nerve clusters in the hand such as the radial, median and ulnar nerves can be compressed due to lifestyle requirements. Such compression affects the perinuirium which is basically the blood nerve barrier. When the area gets compressed for a prolonged period of time, there is significant loss of sensation and functions get affected.

The Technique

The cosmetic surgeon uses techniques of stimulating the affected nerves and reattaching the compressed nerves to the tissue. The post operative sessions may  include the deployment of sciatic bandages to isolate the compressional and to revitalise the nerves, and thereby reverse the failing of the hands.

Carpal tunnel syndrome as a result of repetitive stress injuries are becoming very common especially among the tech industry people. If addressed at a early stage, compression neuropathy can be completely cured by way of corrective surgery, which safe and recommended.

At PearlHealth there are specialized packages for surgeries for compression neuropathy with consultation sessions on post surgical care and exercise to eliminate the issues altogether.
