Carpal tunnel syndrome is numbness, weakness and tingling in the hand due to an injury or inflammation of the median nerve. It is a repetitive motion injury of the wrist. It specifically refers to an injury or compression of the median nerve as it travels through the carpal tunnel, which is comprised of bones, ligaments and other soft tissues. If the bones become misaligned or the ligaments become inflamed or thickened, they can cause a narrowing of the carpal tunnel, which compresses the median nerve
Carpal Tunnel Symptoms
Carpal tunnel causes numbness, tingling and weakness in the hand and first three fingers. It can also cause shooting pains up the arm to the elbow, and in severe instances, it can cause the muscle in the base of the thumb to atrophy.
