Introduction to Wrist Joint

The human hand boasts a sophisticated system that enables it to carry out many functional tasks essential for daily life. Central to this functionality is the wrist joint, which serves as a pivotal connection between the hand and forearm. This joint is highly intricate, comprising numerous bones, ligaments, tendons, and muscles. 

Ankle - General Knowledge

The ankle joint is as vital and versatile as the other structures in human anatomy. Delving into its anatomical complexities, physiological roles, and clinical ramifications is a journey that warrants in-depth exploration. Thoroughly scrutinizing the basic principles and latest developments and comprehending every aspect of this extraordinary joint's anatomy, biomechanics, and functionality enables healthcare providers to accurately evaluate patients and create customized treatment strategies aligned with their unique needs and objectives.

General Knowledge: Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

Carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS) is a common condition that can cause pain, numbness, and tingling sensation in the hand and wrist. It occurs when one of the major nerves in the hand called the median nerve, which runs through a narrow in your wrist called carpal tunnel, becomes squeezed or compressed. This disrupts the nerve’s signals leading to the symptoms of carpal tunnel syndrome.

Assessment: Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

Carpal Tunnel Syndrome (CTS) is a prevalent condition characterized by compression of the median nerve at the wrist, leading to various symptoms and impairments. Effective assessment is crucial in diagnosing CTS accurately and guiding appropriate management strategies.

Treatment & Management: Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

Using a splint to keep your wrist immobile during sleep can alleviate nighttime tingling and numbness. Although you wear the splint only at night, it can prevent daytime symptoms. Nighttime splinting could be a suitable choice for pregnant individuals as it doesn't require medication to be effective.
