WHAT IS IT?
Carpal tunnel syndrome is a condition of the hand caused by compression of the median nerves along the wrist. It occurs frequently in women between the ages of 30 – 60 years old.
WHAT CAUSES IT?
A regular carpal tunnel has limited space for the tendons and the median nerve to pass through. Therefore, any form of swelling leads to compression of that nerve.
Your doctor can check for this condition by performing a Tinel Sign test that involves tapping the palm side of the wrist.
Tests such as X-rays, Ultrasounds, Electromyograms and MRI’s can be done to observe your bones and tissues.
Treatment then depends on the progress level of your condition.
