Carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS) is caused by compression of the median nerve that supplies part of the hand. The nerve runs through the carpal tunnel, a narrow space at the wrist.
Causes of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
Compression of the median nerve is commonly caused by activities that involve repetitive movements of the wrist. It may also be the result of a blow to the wrist.
Symptoms & Diagnosis of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
There may be pain, numbness, or tingling in your thumb and fingers, and you may find manual tasks difficult.
Carpal Tunnel Syndrome Treatment
Carpal tunnel syndrome may clear up with a steroid injection. If injection does not provide relief, surgery is the alternative.
