A number of factors can contribute to carpal tunnel syndrome, including the anatomy of your wrist, certain underlying health problems and possibly patterns of hand use.
Carpal tunnel syndrome (Also know as median nerve compression) is a condition in which a major nerve, one that controls the functions of the fingers and hand (the Median Nerve) becomes compressed inside a ‘tunnel’ in the wrist. This can cause various symptoms including pain, numbness, tingling, or a ‘funny feeling’ in the fingers, hand, or wrist.

What is the Carpal Tunnel?
Carpal comes from the Latin word ‘carpus’ meaning wrist. The carpal tunnel is a small passage inside the wrist. The bottom and sides of the tunnel are formed by, small fine bones. A ligament arching over bones forms the roof or top of the tunnel; this ligament is called the transverse carpal ligament.
Passing through this tunnel are arteries and veins, the tendons of the fingers flexor muscles which allow the fingers to bend, the median nerve, which conducts impulses sent by the brain down the arms and to the fingers.
