Nerve blocks

Nerve blocks help to treat many different types of pain.

Few examples of nerve blocks :

carpal tunnel syndrome/meralgia paresthetica/Nerve entrapment syndromes/cubital tunnel syndrome/pyrifirmis syndrome etc.

1. CARPAL TUNNEL SYNDROME (MEDIAN NERVE COMPRESSION)

Wrist is made up of many small bones(carpal bones)&ligaments. 3 major nerves( MEDIAN NERVE/ULNAR NERVE/RADIAL NERVE)controls touch, pain & temperature of fore arm & hand. Carpal tunnel is a narrow passage in wrist through which median nerve travels.

Median nerve gets compressed during this course.
