  • medial
  • It encompasses compressive or traction injuries to the posterior tibial nerve and its terminal branches, the medial and lateral plantar nerves, as well as the medial and inferior calcaneal nerves. (podiatrytoday.com)
  • surgical
  • Surgical treatment involves enlarging the carpal tunnel to decrease the pressure on the nerve, and it is done on an outpatient basis with both local anesthesia and sedation medication. (rochester.edu)
  • splint
  • The purpose of this randomized clinical trial was to examine the efficacy of a splinting (fabricated versus off-the-shelf splint)and exercise (nerve and tendon gliding versus no exercise) interventions to alter the clinical course of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome (CTS). (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • We hypothesized that the fabricated splint with nerve and tendon gliding exercises condition would yield the best functional outcomes at 4 and 8 weeks posttesting. (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • surgery
  • Nerve release surgery is a minor operation to make more room for the irritated or injured nerve. (sharecare.com)
  • Anyways, before I get off track, the doctor proposed surgery to decompress the nerve, but I'm real hesistant because I;m truly convinced that the pain I'm experiencing in my biceps (deep dull pain right in the middle) and triceps (sharper pain, comes and goes) is not related to this ulnar nerve entrapment and believe something else is awry.

  • Surgery for Carpal Tunnel Syndrome is also misunderstood by the public as well as physicians. (drbadia.com)
  • If the diagnostic tests show that there is nerve compression, surgery may be recommended. (rochester.edu)
  • treatment
  • Treatment of these conditions may improve the nerve entrapment. (sharecare.com)
  • Other treatment options include braces or splints, cortisone injections or oral medications (such as anti-inflammatory drugs or medicines for nerve disease such as gabapentin (Neurontin). (sharecare.com)
  • electrophysiologic
  • In order to address potential weaknesses in previously reported studies, this study incorporated a large number of randomly selected subjects, standardized electrophysiologic assessment of nerve function, and multiple complementary measurements of vitamin-B6 status. (cdc.gov)
  • This mechanistic study explores the close anatomical association between the Pericardium meridian/median nerve and the Heart meridian/ulnar nerve in an attempt to produce electrophysiologic data measuring acupuncture's direct, nerve-specific effect on the underlying nerves. (biomedcentral.com)
