Carpal Tunnel Syndrome is a common progressive wrist injury associated with repetitive actions or overuse of the wrist and hands. It occurs when the median nerve of the hand, which passes over the carpal tunnel, a narrow passageway that extends along the underside of the wrist, becomes compressed. This condition can cause numbness, tingling, pain, burning sensations and severe discomfort. Prompt and proper treatment is required, otherwise the condition will worsen and permanent damage can result. In the workplace, an employee might have trouble grasping or holding tools, typing or working at a computer or doing other repetitive actions necessary to fulfill their jobs.
