Carpal tunnel syndrome

If you experience numbness, tingling or weakness in your hand, consider asking your doctor to examine you for Carpal Tunnel syndrome.

This structure, located in the wrist, is the source of a syndrome that affects about 2% of the population.

This condition occurs when one of the major nerves to the hand, the Median nerve, is compressed as it travels through the wrist. This happens when the Carpal Tunnel in your wrist is inflamed.
