                         Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

Definition:

The carpal tunnel is a passageway on the side of the wrist that connects the forearm to the middle compartment of the palm. The tunnel consists of bones and connective tissue. Several tendons and nerves pass through it as well.

Syndrome:

Tingling or numbness, pain radiating or extending from the wrist to the shoulder or down into your palm or fingers, especially after forceful or repetitive use, a sense of weakness.

Causes:

Occurs as a result of compression of the median nerve. The median nerve runs from the forearm to a passageway in the wrist (carpal tunnel) to the hand.
