Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
Carpal tunnel syndrome is a condition experienced by many people as they age; for some, it can be painful and debilitating. This syndrome affects the median nerve in the hand and wrist. Generally, swelling in the hand and wrist leads to the median nerve being pinched, resulting in pain and numbness.
Carpal tunnel is thought to be caused by repetitive motions made with the hands and wrists, meaning people who participate in sports and even people who use office computers on a regular basis are at a higher risk.
