Carpal Tunnel Syndrome (CTS) is a condition that affects the hands, wrists, and elbows. This condition causes a narrowing of the nerve passageway in the wrist and causes an impingement of the median nerve, which originates in the spine and reaches all the way to the wrist. Any swelling in the arm, shoulder, forearm, or wrist can apply pressure on the median nerve and that can lead to pain, numbness, and limited movement.
People who experience carpal tunnel are usually people who work at a desk or on a computer for eight or more hours a day. This occupational health problem affects millions of people a year. It is often a problem caused by pressure placed on the nerves when doing common daily activities. Other symptoms caused by carpal tunnel can also include weakness or loss of grip strength, tingling, burning, and wrist pain. Fortunately, alternative treatments can help with the healing of median nerve. Since the median nerve originates in the spine, our pain relieving treatments may help in relieving the symptoms associated with carpal tunnel.

Pain, numbness and tingling in your hand may be from carpal tunnel syndrome. It happens when the area around the main nerve to your hand is too tight. The nerve is called the median nerve. And the small space in your wrist where it passes is called the carpal tunnel.
