Carpal Tunnel Syndrome is a condition that occurs when the median nerve, which runs through a narrow passage called the carpal tunnel in the wrist, becomes compressed or irritated. This compression often results from repetitive hand movements, improper wrist positioning, or underlying health conditions such as arthritis or diabetes.
Individuals who spend long hours typing, performing assembly line work, or engaging in activities that involve repetitive wrist movements are particularly susceptible to developing CTS.
Symptoms of CTS typically include pain, numbness, tingling, or a "pins and needles" sensation in the hand and fingers. Over time, these symptoms can worsen, affecting daily activities and diminishing quality of life.
