Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

Carpal tunnel refers to a tunnel of bones in the wrist. The median nerve can be compressed in this location in the wrist .  Compression of that median nerve can cause pain in the wrist, hand and fingers.  Weakness can develop in the hand along with the numbness in the fingers. Commonly patients describe that they drop things or cant unbutton there shirt.   Hand weakness can occur if the problem is not addressed.  It can be caused by a variety of circumstances and conditions.

How Do I Know if I have Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

Symptoms of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome are felt in the lower arms and hands. Symptoms include numbness, tingling, pain that radiates along the nerve path, and a sensation of pins and needles. The longer the nerve remains compressed the more chance there is that permanent damaged may occur. Because of this it is important to seek treatment as soon as the condition is diagnosed.
