Transcript

When symptoms of carpal tunnel syndrome persist and progress, it's time to seek out medical care. The first line of defense is often having a conversation with your primary care doctor about your symptoms. If it's likely that carpal tunnel syndrome is the cause, the next appropriate step is to see a hand specialist. A hand surgeon will be better able to confirm that carpal tunnel syndrome is the source of your symptoms, and will be able to outline appropriate treatment steps for you.
