Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

Carpal Tunnel Syndrome is a condition that is triggered when the median nerve in your hand gets compressed or pressurized. It is caused by the pressure put on the median nerve when it runs through a narrow passageway called the carpal tunnel, which is surrounded by ligaments and bones on the palm side of your hand. This pressure can lead to numbness, weakness, and tingling in your arms and hands.

Factors such as the anatomy of your wrist, arthritis, wrist fracture, and repetitive hand movements can all contribute to carpal tunnel syndrome. Treating it properly usually relieves the numbness and tingling and restores the strength and functioning of your wrist and hand.
