How Typing Daily Leads to Chronic Pain and What Can Be Done

Once upon a time, only secretaries, data entry professionals, and other clerical workers were at risk for chronic pain from typing. Today, almost every profession requires at least limited use of a computer. Now that so many positions require daily typing, more and more people are getting carpal tunnel syndrome. 

Carpal tunnel syndrome most often develops through repetitive motion injuries, such as those that occur with regular typing. Symptoms can include stiffness, swelling, tingling or numbness, pain, or an inability to tell hot from cold on touch. These symptoms can lead to further injury of the hand. 

Luckily, there are some treatments that can reverse the damage done by carpal tunnel syndrome. Here in our practice, we offer the solutions of stem cell therapy and carpal tunnel outpatient surgery to treat the condition. 

You don’t have to live with the stiffness and pain that comes with this condition. Even if you want to try to avoid surgery, we have treatments that can help. If we are unable to improve your symptoms, you may need to turn to a surgical option.
