Define Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
Carpal Tunnel Syndrome is a condition where the median nerve, running from the forearm to the palm of the hand, becomes painful with numbness and tingling. This discomfort is mainly the result of being pressed or squeezed. The Carpal Tunnel is a path of ligament and bones at the base of the hand housing the nerves and tendons that bend fingers. This is an important area of one’s anatomy that is in constant use. Continual use of the hand in the same way, such as typing or clicking on a computer or a phone, can cause pain and discomfort leading to Carpal Tunnel Syndrome. Tennis players also suffer with this condition from gripping a tennis racquet for long periods of time. Relieving Carpal Tunnel Syndrome discomfort is a specialty of the Physical Therapy Team at Elite Spine and Sports Care of Totowa.
