Carpal Tunnel Syndrome(CTS) is known as one of the most common nerve disorders that affects over 4 million Americans. Typically, the most common symptom that occurs a mild tingling burning sensation in parts of the hands and wrists, but in severe causes, one may experience loss of feeling and hand function. We use our hands on a daily basis which is why it is crucial for anyone experiencing these sort of symptoms to seek professional health as soon as they can.
What is Carpal Tunnel Syndrome?
The carpal tunnel is a narrow passageway of ligaments and bones that helps protect the median nerve, which is located in the forearm and extends to the palm of the hand. When this nerve becomes constricted or pressed a person may typically experience some loss of movement and feeling in the hand and wrist.
Main causes may occur due to:
- Thyroid disease
- Wrist injuries
Other causes may be due to repetitive hand and wrist motions, specifically ones that produce vibrations.
