Carpal Tunnel Syndrome (CTS)

Carpal tunnel syndrome is a condition of nerve entrapment caused by the narrowing of the tunnel surrounding the tissues inside the bones of your wrist, inflaming the median nerve and surrounding tissues. The median nerve gives feeling to your thumb, and index, middle and ring fingers. People engaged in repetitive hand motions throughout their day may develop carpal tunnel syndrome.
