Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

Carpal tunnel syndrome is a painful neurological condition that affects the hand and fingers.

It occurs when the nerve which is responsible for movement and sensation becomes compressed by the tendons and connective tissue in the wrist.

The condition is five times more common in women than men, particularly during pregnancy.

The following symptoms are associated with this condition:

  • Burning, numbness or pins and needles into the thumb, first and middle fingers.
  • Pain which is made worse by repetitive movements of the hand or wrist.

  • Pain when gripping or attempting to flex the hand and fingers.
