What is carpal tunnel?
Carpal tunnel syndrome is a common condition that causes pain, numbness and tingling in the hand and arm. Carpal tunnel occurs when the tunnel becomes narrowed and the median nerve is squeezed or compressed as it travels through the wrist. Over time, it can lead to nerve damage and worsening of symptoms.
