This is a hand and arm condition, known also as carpal tunnel syndrome that causes tingling, numbing, and other symptoms. The carpal tunnel is a narrow passageway located on the palm side of the wrist that is bound by bones and ligaments. The tunnel protects a main nerve to the hand and the tendons that bend the fingers. When these nerves are compromised, the result is carpal tunnel syndrome.
There are several factors that contribute to carpal tunnel syndrome which can include the anatomy of a patient’s wrist, certain underlying health problems, and patterns of hand use.
When nerves are compressed in the wrist the result can be numbness, tingling, and hand weakness that that is characteristic of carpal tunnel syndrome.
One or more of the following tests are used to determine whether a person has carpal tunnel syndrome:
For most patients, proper treatment relieves the numbness and tingling and restores the wrist and hand.
