Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

Definition

Carpal Tunnel Syndrome (CTS) is a common, painful disorder caused by compression of the median nerve, which passes between the bones and ligaments of the wrists.

Signs and Symptoms

Compression of the median nerve causes weakness, pain when gripping, and burning, tingling or aching that may radiate to the forearm and shoulder. Symptoms may be occasional or constant.

Causes

Carpal Tunnel Syndrome is caused most frequently by repetitive minor injury. This injury occurs most commonly in people who perform repetitive, strenuous work with their hands (e.g., carpenters) but may also occur in people who do light work (e.g., typists and keyboard operators). It may also follow more serious injuries of the wrist. Carpal tunnel syndrome can also be caused by anything that produces inflammation or swelling of the tissues of the wrist, such as rheumatoid arthritis, diabetes, and hyperthyroidism.
