Double Crush Syndrome

April 9, 2019


If a patient has neck problems, it cannot cause carpal tunnel because carpal tunnel is a disorder of the median nerve at the palm. That being said, it is possible for a patient to have what's called a double crush phenomenon where they can have numbness and tingling in their hand and it can be both as a result of compression of a nerve in the neck as well as compression of the nerve in the palm. So that's called a double crush phenomenon because they have the two nerves being compressed in two different areas.
