For most people who develop carpal tunnel syndrome, proper treatment can usually relieve any tingling and numbness and actually restore wrist and hand function.
What Is Carpal Tunnel Syndrome?
The carpal tunnel is a very narrow passageway located on the palm side of your wrist. The tunnel is there to protect the main nerve to your hand and the nine tendons that help you to bend your fingers.
Carpal tunnel syndrome is a hand and arm condition, which is caused by a pinched nerve in your wrist. Carpal tunnel syndrome causes compression of the nerve, which induces numbness and tingling, and may cause other symptoms.
There are a number of factors which contribute to carpal tunnel syndrome. These include the anatomy of your wrist, certain underlying health problems and possibly patterns of hand use.
