Define Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
Carpal Tunnel Syndrome is a painful condition where a nerve that runs from the forearm to the palm of the hand, becomes numb and tingles. Generally, this is caused by being pressed or squeezed. The carpal tunnel is a line of ligament and bones at the base of the hand in which the nerve and tendons that bend the fingers and move the hand are found. This is an area of constant use, and if that use involves the same movement in a continual way, pain ensues. This continual movement in the same way when typing or clicking on a computer or phone
can cause pain and discomfort to the hand. Tennis players are also victims of this problem from tightly holding a tennis racquet for long periods of time. This action leads to Carpal Tunnel Syndrome.
