Musculoskeletal Pain

Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

Carpal tunnel is a narrow passageway surrounded by bones and ligaments on the palm. Carpal tunnel Syndrome is a disorder caused by compression of the median nerve as it travels through the wrist’s carpal tunnel.

Women are three times more likely to have CTS than men, and the prevalence and severity increase with age. Work-related activities that require a high degree of repetition and force of hand-operated vibratory tools significantly increase the risk of CTS. 
Especially with certain activities such as talking on the phone, reading a book or newspaper, or driving. Hand weakness may make it difficult to grasp small objects or perform other manual tasks.

Symptoms:
• Clumsiness of hand when gripping objects
• Numbness or tingling in the thumb and next 2-3 fingers of one or both hands
• Numbness or tingling of palm of the hand
• Weak grip or difficult to carry
• Weakness
