What is Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

Carpal Tunnel Syndrome (CTS) is the most common type of Repetitive Stress Injury (RSI). Carpal Tunnel Syndrome occurs when your wrists are exposed to persistent and repetitive strain. The tissues surrounding the tendons become so enlarged that they compress the median nerve which runs through the carpal tunnel, a passage in the wrist and can cause the following:

  • reduced muscle control;
  • impaired or lost of nervous function;
  • diminished grip strength;
  • numbness, tingling and pain;
  • reduced ability to grasp, pinch and manipulate objects with the hand.
