Understanding Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

Carpal Tunnel Syndrome is one of the most common problems affecting the hand.1

Understanding your symptoms, the causes, and available treatment options.

Symptoms caused by Carpal Tunnel Syndrome usually appear in the thumb, index, and middle fingers and may travel up to your shoulder. Always see your health care provider for a diagnosis.

Swelling in the carpal tunnel puts pressure on the median nerve, which supplies most of the feeling and movement to the fingers and thumb. Carpal Tunnel Syndrome may occur when this pressure becomes significant enough to compress the median nerve. Other medical conditions, such as repetitive hand motions or fluid retention, can be compounded by symptoms of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome and can worsen overnight. Common symptoms include, but are not limited to, the following:




Shock-like Sensations


Burning Sensation


Weakened Grip


Wrist Pain
