Carpal tunnel syndrome is caused by a pinched nerve in the wrist, which results in a numbness and/or tingling sensation in the hand, wrist, and arm. The carpal tunnel is a narrow pathway surrounded by bones and ligaments that is located on the palm side of your hand. When the nerve is compressed, it results in numbness and tingling in the hand, wrist, and arm. Carpal tunnel syndrome is often caused by repetitive hand motions. If you suffer from carpal tunnel syndrome, contact our team at BodyPro Chiropractic & Sports Medicine.

Symptoms of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
The symptoms of carpal tunnel syndrome come about gradually and usually include:
- Tingling or numbness: Oftentimes, people who experience carpal tunnel syndrome may notice tingling or numbness in your fingers and/or hand. People usually feel these symptoms in the thumb and index finger, as well as the middle finger or ring finger. However, the smallest finger is not usually affected. The tingling or numbing sensation can also move up to your wrist and arm.
- Weakness: Weakness in your hand is another symptom of carpal tunnel, which can result in the inability of holding certain items. This is usually caused by the numbness that is felt.
