Wrist



Huge numbers of people are affected by wrist pain - which is normally attributable to Carpal Tunnel Syndrome. This is a nerve disorder which occurs when the median nerve is compressed and/or loses its ability to glide smoothly in the osteo-ligamentous tunnel - the tunnel made up of the carpal bones and the palmar ligament.

Symptoms

  • Wrist pain especially upon waking or at night
  • Burning
  • Numbness
  • Tingling
  • Aching in the wrist and tips of the third and/or fourth fingers
  • Slight loss of movement or control in the fingers

Causes

Overuse of the wrist is the overriding cause of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome. Repetitive actions performed in daily tasks, such as using a computer, are the main factors. Pregnant women and anyone suffering from a metabolic disease. tendon development issues, osteoarthritis of the wrist joints or a wrist injury may also develop CTS.
