Atrophy or wasting of the thumb (thenar) muscles is the last stage of nerve injury in carpal tunnel syndrome.
Do I need a splint after my carpal tunnel surgery?
Putting patients in splints after surgery for hand and arm problems is common – I recommend splinting for almost all my patients after surgery – but not after carpal tunnel release!
