Carpal Tunnel Tests

Do you have hand pain? Perhaps you need carpal tunnel tests for carpal tunnel syndrome. Or maybe you have wrist tendinitis or de Quervain’s tenosynovitis? Maybe it’s Dupuytren’s contracture? How can you tell?

You or your doctor can perform tests simply and easily. It’s actually a series of tests to determine if you have carpal tunnel syndrome or one of these other, similar conditions. They’re not fancy, but they work.

Some doctors insist upon the EMG as a definitive carpal tunnel syndrome test. However, multiple studies show that the EMG is not as sensitive as these “provocative” tests that you can do on yourself and in your own home. The tests are highly sensitive and specific for carpal tunnel syndrome. And they cost nothing!

Find out how to test yourself for carpal tunnel syndrome or another condition. Identifying your condition is always the first step toward properly treating it.
