What is Carpal Tunnel Syndrome?


It’s often called trying to find light at the end of the carpal tunnel. People with carpal tunnel syndrome actually have a problem in their wrist where there is pressure and the median nerve gets impacted, or contracted, or pushed upon. When it does, the thumb and parts of the next three digits, especially what we call the lateral side or radial side, they actually get tender and tingling. They don’t feel well and when you spread your hands, and also bend at the wrist, the pain can be reproduced. The way you deal with it is to relieve the pressure on that nerve.
