The Micro-Invasive & Better Treatment for Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
March 4, 2019
Do you suffer from carpal tunnel syndrome? Carpal tunnel syndrome, or CTS, is a condition that causes pain, numbness, and tingling in the hands and arms. CTS is caused by compression of major nerves in the hand. These nerves travel through the wrist, which is why CTS can affect your hands, wrists, and arms. The discomfort of CTS can cause individuals to miss out on work and leisure activities, but Apex Sports & Regenerative Medicine is dedicated to helping patients experience relief from their CTS.
At Apex Sports & Regenerative Medicine, we recommend the Sonex treatment. This micro-invasive, better treatment is the most ideal option for CTS patients. With the Sonex treatment, an ultra-low profile SX One MicroKnife is used. This innovative tool is a surgical device, which makes the smallest incision possible to complete the procedure. This single micro-incision is 4 to 5mm in the wrist, and can be closed with an adhesive or bandage, rather than stitches or sutures. This minimally invasive procedure is the most comfortable option for patients who are seeking relief. It also offers the fastest recovery time possible. CTS already causes you discomfort and prevents you from doing the activities you love, so why wait any longer than you have to for recovery? Sonex is quick, comfortable, and causes minimal scarring. Most importantly, Sonex can offer relief.
The alternative to Sonex is open or endoscopic carpal tunnel release. These procedures are also effective, but the incision is larger and the recovery time is longer. If you want to reduce the pain, numbness, and tingling in your hands, wrists, and arms, you can select these options, but you may have to take several weeks, even a month, to recover from the procedure.
