For Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
Carpal Tunnel Syndrome: Compression of the median nerve as it passes from the forearm to the hand through a bony tunnel is known as carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS). This is often associated with repetitive hand movements and is a common condition these days with computer use.
Carpal tunnel syndrome is a condition where there is a tingling pain, numbness, and weakness of the thumb, index, and the middle fingers caused by irritation of the median nerve. It is a common condition in this day and age of excessive computer use and video gaming. The median nerve carries sensations from the thumb, index, and middle fingers of the hand. Along with some tendons, the median nerve passes through the carpal tunnel, which is located between wrist muscles and wrist bones. If there is a swelling or a change in position of the tissue inside the carpal tunnel, the median nerve is squeezed and irritated. This results in pain, numbness, and tingling. Carpal tunnel syndrome starts as a vague ache in the wrist that spreads to the hand or forearm. People suffering from carpal tunnel syndrome present with the following symptoms.
Thumb, index, middle and ring fingers are affected in carpal tunnel syndrome while the little finger is often unaffected. The dominant hand is more commonly affected but both hands may experience symptoms.

Pain radiating from the wrist to the arm or spreading down into the palm or fingers is characteristic of carpal tunnel syndrome. The pain tends to worsen after repetitive or forceful use of the hands.
Weakness: There is some degree of muscle weakness of the hands over time. A gradual loss of grip and increased tendency to drop things and objects may be noticed. This grip strength can be electronically measured and monitored over time.
