The nervous system is an electrical system that controls all our functioning from voluntary movement to the involuntary working of our organs. The nerves also conduct sensation signals from all over our body to the brain. Any disruption of the electrical signals will result in either a loss of function, loss of sensation or a combination of both.
There is a large number of neurological conditions, most of which are treated in specialized hospital rehabilitation centers. The conditions we treat at Vitalite include Bell’s Palsy and Carpal Tunnel Syndrome.
- Bell’s Palsy
- Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
Includes ultrasound for swelling, electrical stimulation and muscle re-education together with antibiotics and cortisone. Recovery time can range from a couple of days to 6 weeks.
Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
This, in turn, puts pressure on the median nerve causing pain and changes of sensation. Typically, this pain travels from the wrist through the and increases mostly at night.
Besides a history and physical examination, an MRI may be requested to diagnose a case of carpal tunnel syndrome.
