entrapment of the median nerve at the wrist with weakness of the thumb and loss of sensation in the thumb, index, middle and half of the ring finger. It can present with pain during the night and first thing in the morning.
Pressure on the median nerve at the point at which it passes through the carpel tunnel of the wrist. Causes soreness and tenderness of the muscles of the thumb. (See CTD).
This medical symptom is sometimes attributed to repetitive motion injuries usually caused by a tool that is not ergonomically designed for the operator.
An inflammation of the flexor tendon in the wrist caused by repetitive motion. Carpel tunnel produces numbness and tingling in the hand and fingers.
A painful disorder in the hand caused by repetitive motion, such as grasping the push rim of a wheelchair and pushing.
Condition in which the median nerve is compressed as it passes through the median nerve at the wrist, resulting in pain, weakness or numbness in the distribution of the median nerve in the hand.
The compression of the median nerve within the carpal tunnel resulting in numbness, tingling, "pins and needles," and pain in the hand and fingers.
This is a condition of the nerve junction of the wrist and hand which can be effectively treated with magnetic therapy.
Carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS) is a painful, debilitating condition. It involves the median nerve and the flexor tendons that bend the wrist and fingers to grip. They extend from the forearm into the hand through a "tunnel" made up of the wrist bones, or carpals and the transverse carpal ligament. As you move your hand and fingers, the flexor tendons rub against the sides of the tunnel. This rubbing can cause irritation of the tendons, causing them to swell.
