Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
Carpal tunnel syndrome, also called CTS, is a condition that causes a pinching of the median nerve as it passes through a narrow tunnel at the wrist.
The nerves from the spine to the hand originate from what is called the cervical region of your neck. They enter into your body at the base of your neck and travel down both sides of your arm to branch out and connect with your fingers and hands. On one side, these nerves are called “radial” because they branch off towards radial muscles in our forearm. On the other side, these nerves are called “thenar” because they branch off towards our thumb muscle. The median nerve originates in our neck on one side and branches out to both sides of our arm where it travels down into our hand
