Carpal tunnel syndrome occurs when the median nerve that runs through the carpal tunnel into the hand is compressed. CTS can berelated to certain medical conditions, hereditary factors or repetitive motions of the wrist or hands for an extended period of time.
People with carpal tunnel syndrome may experience tingling, numbness or weakness in the hands. Untreated, CTS can lead to permanent nerve/muscle damage. The CTS screening consists of a discussion of symptoms, a physical exam and a limited nerve conduction test.
