Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

Carpal tunnel is the area in the wrist through which important tendons to the fingers pass along with median nerve. When the nerve gets compressed due to damage due to any reason such as diabetes, gout, hypothyroidism, arthritis or injury there can be pain, tingling, weakness in all fingers except pinky.

Spinal Stenosis Risk Factors

At Millennium Medical we see patients with spinal stenosis. Yesterday, I posted questions regarding risk factors for spinal stenosis.
Arthritis is the leading cause of spinal stenosis. It causes narrowing of the spinal canal with bone spurs and may pinch nerves.

What can you do to prevent spinal stenosis?

  • Exercise regularly and stretching to keep the spine and ligaments flexible.
  • Keep a healthy normal weight
  • Smoking and nicotine can have direct effects on the disc that lie between the spine bones called vertebrae.

If you have back symptoms take action ask your physician for a referral to physical therapy so you can get better and prevent further injury to your spine.
After all you have only one back and we got your back at Millennium Medical and Rehab 914 472-2700
