Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

Carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS) occurs when the median nerve becomes pinched due to swelling of the nerve or tendons or both. The median nerve provides sensation to the palm side of the thumb, index, middle fingers, as well as the inside half of the ring finger and muscle power to the thumb. When this nerve becomes pinched, numbness, tingling and sometimes pain of the affected fingers and hand may occur and radiate into the forearm.

Symptoms of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

  • you might notice that their fingers "fall asleep" and become numb at night. 
  • might wake up with numbness and tingling in their hands. 
  • feeling of burning pain and numbness may generally run up the center of the person's forearm, 
  • sometimes CTS can reach as far as the shoulder.
  • as carpal tunnel syndrome becomes more severe, symptoms are noticed during the day.
