Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
WHAT IS CARPAL TUNNEL SYNDROME?
The carpal tunnel is a narrow passageway located at the base of the hand. It is made up of bones and ligaments and creates a "tunnel" in the wrist that tendons and a very key nerve, known as the median nerve, passes through. Overuse and improper use of the muscles in the forearm lead to tightness of the tendons that surround the median nerve, compressing it as a result. This causes the numbness, tingling, and pain in your hand that travels up your arm. Carpal tunnel syndrome does not have to be something that you have to live with. Dr. Kuang can help.
