Carpal Tunnel syndrome is a condition caused by the compression of the median nerve as it travels through the wrist and into the hand. CTS typically starts gradually with pain, numbness, and pins and needles in the palm side of the thumb, index, middle and the thumb side of the middle fingers. In severe cases the hand can become weak, and muscle wasting can occur. In suspected CTS cases the neck should be ruled out as a cause, as referral from pinched nerves in the neck, can also cause these symptoms. Our doctors will take the time to determine the cause of issues and create a custom plan that will address your concerns.
