Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
Carpal Tunnel Syndrome (Repetitive Strain Injury)
Carpal Tunnel Syndrome (CTS) is a common, painful disorder caused by the compression of a nerve that passes between the bones and ligaments of the wrist. The condition causes numbness, tingling, and/or burning pain in the first three fingers of the hand, and symptoms can be particularly bad at night. CTS is more prevalent among women and occurs frequently between the ages of forty and sixty years.
