Causes & Symptoms of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
These days, millions of Americans have jobs that can have damaging effects on the hands and arms. Repetitive movements which are not performed with good ergonomics in mind can cause micro-trauma to the hands and wrists. This trauma, combined with joint
dysfunction and spinal problems, may result in a condition known as carpal tunnel syndrome.
The median nerve, which is affected by carpal tunnel syndrome, travels from the tips of the fingers, through the wrist, up the arm, and into the neck where it connects to the spinal cord. If one or more of these structures are afflicted, the following symptoms can occur:
- Wrist pain
- Numbness in arm or hand
- Arm weakness
- Burning sensations in arm or hand
- Loss of muscle function
