Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
Carpal tunnel syndrome impacts approximately 5% of all Americans, according to the American Physical Therapy Association. The main job of the carpal tunnel is to protect the median nerve on the inside of your wrist, in addition to the tendons you use to bend the fingers. However, it is possible for this tunnel to become constricted, and when it does, nerve compression can result. This leads to a variety of symptoms, such as numbness and tingling to the thumb, 1st, and 2nd fingers. In addition, pain to the wrist and hand, as well as swelling to the hand and fingers, is even possible. Carpal Tunnel Syndrome (CTS) can be caused by an injury or by repetitive job-related use, such as assembly-line work, keyboard-heavy work, or driving heavy machinery.
