Carpal Tunnel

Carpal Tunnel at Rivers Hospital

Carpal tunnel syndrome is a common condition that can cause tingling, numbness, and pain in your hand and fingers. It occurs when your median nerve becomes pressed or squeezed in the narrow wrist passage, called your carpal tunnel.

What is carpal tunnel syndrome?

Carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS) is the compression of one of the main nerves in your hand, called the median nerve. This major nerve travels from your forearm to the palm of your hand and can become compressed at a narrow passageway of the carpal tunnel in your wrist. This pressure on your median nerve causes your CTS symptoms such as tingling, numbness, and pain.
