Carpal Tunnel Syndrome is a condition affecting hundreds of thousands of people across the country. It is a numbness of the thumb, index, and/or middle fingers, the result of undue pressure being applied to the median nerve running between the wrist bones and adjoining ligament. The numbness may be worse at night and you may experience weakening of the thumb muscles.
The condition is quite common among people with jobs that require daily, repetitive hand motions. It is usually diagnosed by a Nerve Connection Study, which measures the length of time required for a nerve signal to cross the carpal tunnel. Any delay is indicative of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome.
