Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

Carpal tunnel syndrome is a term that is well known. Unfortunately, given this widespread familiarity, people often attribute any discomfort or pain in the hand or wrist to carpal tunnel syndrome. Carpal tunnel syndrome is quite common, affecting 4-10 million Americans, and usually very treatable. However, there are many other conditions which can cause similar complaints. It is important to know the difference.

Fast Facts
– The main symptom of carpal tunnel syndrome is numbness of the fingers.
– Carpal tunnel syndrome may interfere with hand strength and sensation, and cause a decrease in hand function.
– Carpal tunnel syndrome can be treated effectively with medications, splinting, steroid injections in the wrist and/or surgery.

WHAT IS CARPAL TUNNEL SYNDROME?
Carpal tunnel syndrome is possibly the most common nerve disorder experienced today. The carpal tunnel is located at the wrist on the palm side of the hand just beneath the skin surface (palmar surface). Eight small wrist bones form three sides of the tunnel, giving rise to the name carpal tunnel. The remaining side of the tunnel, the palmar surface, is composed of soft tissues, consisting mainly of a ligament called the transverse carpal ligament. This ligament stretches over the top of the tunnel.

The median nerve and nine flexor tendons to the fingers pass through the carpal tunnel. [Flexor tendons help flex or bend the fingers.] When the median nerve in the wrist is compressed (squeezed by swollen tissues, for example), it slows or blocks nerve impulses from travelling through the nerve. Because the median nerve provides muscle function and feeling in the hand, damaging the nerve results in symptoms ranging from mild occasional numbness to hand weakness, loss of feeling and loss of hand function. Usually carpal tunnel syndrome affects only one hand, but can affect both at the same time, causing symptoms in the thumb and the index, middle and adjacent half of the ring finger. In addition to numbness, those with the syndrome may experience tingling, pins and needle sensation or burning of the hand occasionally extending up to the forearm.

Frequently, symptoms surface in the morning upon awakening, or may cause waking during the night. Symptoms can occur with certain activities such as driving, holding a book or other repetitive activity with the hands, especially those requiring prolonged grasping or flexing (bending) of the wrist. Hand functional activities, such as buttoning, may become difficult, and sufferers may drop things more easily.
