Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

Carpal Tunnel Syndrome is a common condition that affects the hand and wrist. It occurs when the median nerve, which runs from the forearm to the hand, becomes compressed or squeezed as it passes through the wrist. This compression can cause a range of symptoms, including pain, tingling, numbness, and weakness in the affected hand and fingers.  A common symptom experiences is the dropping of small objects and loss of dexterity.
