What Is Carpal Tunnel Syndrome?


Carpal Tunnel Syndrome (CTS) is a often a painful condition of the hand and fingers, specifically the palm, thumb, index finger, middle finger, and part of the ring part (all on the palm side of the hand). It is caused by compression of the median nerve where it passes over the carpal bones (or wrist bones) through a passage area at the front of the wrist, alongside the flexor tendons of the hand. It may be caused by trauma, repetitive movements over a long period, or by fluid retention, and is characterized also by tingling, numbness, or burning sensations. I personally have had carpal tunnel syndrome in the past that was caused by holding on to the steering wheel while being rearended in my car.  But with proper treatment, my carpal tunnel syndrome went away and so can yours.
