Carpal Tunnel syndrome is a condition where the median nerve is compressed while passing through the wrist canal. True carpal tunnel syndrome is a condition seen in only about 3% of the population. The most common causes include changes in muscle tone, wrist joint position, and general swelling caused by overuse or ergonomic stressors. Most symptoms include: intermittent pins and needles or numbness into the hand or fingers, wrist pain, hand and finger stiffness, and decreased grip strength with fine motor movements.
