Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

Advance Care Centre for Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

What is Carpal Tunnel Syndrome?

Also known as median nerve compression, carpal tunnel syndrome is a condition causing numbness, tingling and weakness in the hand.

The median nerve that runs along the length of the arm through a passage in the wrist is called the carpal tunnel. The carpal tunnel syndrome occurs when this nerve is pinched.

The symptoms of carpal tunnel syndrome are:

  • Burning, tingling, itching or numbness in your palm or any of the fingers
  • Weakness in hand and inability to hold on to objects.
  • Shock-like feelings that move into fingers.
  • Tingling that moves up into the arm.
  • You may find that your hands will go numb during the night and shaking them at night will help get rid of the tingling and numbness. However, as the condition worsens, you may find it tougher and tougher to maintain the grip on the objects.
