Popularly characterised by pain, tingling, numbness, and other symptomatic discomfort of the hand, Carpal Tunnel Syndrome (CTS) is a progressive condition caused by excessive compression of the median nerve in your wrist.
The most common causes of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome include hypothyroidism, rheumatoid arthritis, diabetes, pregnancy, obesity, repetitive hand movements, wrist injuries, bone spurs, and even smoking.
The median nerve, which runs from your forearm to the palm of your hand, controls the sensation, impulse, and movement of your fingers.
