Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

Carpal tunnel syndrome is a common, painful disorder of the wrist and hand caused by pressure on the median nerve, the nerve in the wrist that supplies feeling and movement to parts of the hand. It can lead to numbness, tingling, weakness, or muscle damage in the hand and fingers.
