for carpal tunnel syndrome


The carpal tunnel is a narrow passageway on the palm side of the wrist. The floor of this tunnel is formed by the bones of the wrist and a strong ligament creates the roof. An important nerve called the median nerve runs through the carpal tunnel and gives feeling to the skin of the thumb, index finger, middle finger and half of the ring finger. This nerve also gives movement to some of the muscles around the thumb. Carpal tunnel syndrome occurs when there is pressure on the median nerve from a variety of causes.
