Carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS) is a disorder that affects the hand and wrist.
It occurs when the median nerve which runs through the wrist is compressed, causing such symptoms as changes in sensation, pain, and restricted use of the hand. Carpal tunnel syndrome most commonly occurs in women, with those aged between 30 and 60 years having the highest rates of the condition. Initial treatment aims to reduce and manage symptoms without surgery but if this is unsuccessful, surgery may be recommended.
