Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

Carpal tunnel syndrome is a disorder of the hand caused by pressure of the nerve that run through the wrist. Symptoms include numbness, pins and needles, and pain around the fingers. These sensations are often more pronounced at night and can awaken people from sleep.

Chronic carpal tunnel syndrome can also lead to wasting (atrophy) of the hand muscles and frequent dropping of objects from the hand due to reduced in grip strength.
