Carpal Tunnel


What Is Carpal Tunnel?

Carpal Tunnel is a term used to described a condition in which the nerve that communicates with the brain and the wrist gets compressed within the tunnel formed by your wrist bones. Most people who suffer from carpal tunnel typically experience numbness and tingling in their fingers at night, but may also experience this sensation in the morning. In addition, they often experience a burning pain or numbness and tingling in the forearm that can sometimes radiate up to the shoulder. As carpal tunnel syndrome progresses, the symptoms also become more constant and long lasting creating a necessity for carpal tunnel treatment.
