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.

It does cause difficulty and it is not something that people make up. Carpal tunnel is actually when you do a repetitive motion, and when you use that wrist and flex it, you can get pain and that pain an actually cause tingling, and it causes tingling into the fingers. I think the thing you have to realize about carpal tunnel is that carpal tunnel syndrome is something that can be treated with splints and other therapies. You just have to have it evaluated.
