Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

Physiotherapy Professionals Parramatta 12 Ada Street Harris Park NSW 2150

Carpal tunnel syndrome causes numbness, tingling and weakness in your hand due to increased pressure on the median nerve in your wrist. The median nerve, along with several other structures enter the wrist region through a small space created in your wrist by a series of wrist bones, muscles and tendons. The median nerve is responsible for movement, sensation and power in the thumb and the first three fingers. The little finger is not controlled by the Median nerve.

What causes carpal tunnel?

Pressure on the median nerve causes this. This pressure can come from anything that makes the carpal tunnel smaller. Such as:

  • Repetitive use of wrist (RSI)
  • Swelling – Pre or post pregnancy / after having a fall or accident / overuse of wrist
  • Arthritis
  • Abnormal bone growth
