Carpal Tunnel Syndrome: Symptoms, Causes & Treatment
What Is Carpal Tunnel Syndrome?
Carpal Tunnel Syndrome is a condition that originates in the wrist and causes pain in the hand and fingers because of compressed nerve, known as the median nerve, that passes over the carpal bones and down into the wrist.
Symptoms of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
The pain associated with carpal tunnel syndrome generally increases with time. Common symptoms include:
- Tingling or numbness in thumb, index, and middle fingers
- Weakness with grip
Causes of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
The reason carpal tunnel syndrome occurs is because the median nerve in the wrist is being compressed. This particular nerve allows for feeling signals to be fired on the palm side of the hand. Compression of this nerve can be due to injury or even continuous bad posture over time. Repetitive movements of the wrist can also cause overuse of the wrist joint. Any other conditions that cause swelling in the wrist such as rheumatoid arthritis can be a risk factor.
