Do You Have Carpal Tunnel Syndrome or Wrist Pain?
Wrist pain is extremely common and may be due to overuse, weakness, swelling or tendonitis. Repetitive Strain Injury or RSI occurs as a result of repetitive activity such as typing, texting, or writing. Often patients report pain and weakness in their hands and wrists, tingling into the fingers and swelling in the hand and fingers.
Carpal tunnel syndrome occurs when the median nerve becomes compressed or pinched. The median nerve is located on the palm side of your hand, providing sensation to the palm of your hand and your thumb, index, middle and ring fingers. Often carpal tunnel causes pain and tingling into the hand and also swelling of the wrist (especially in pregnancy). Carpal tunnel syndrome can occur in one or both of your hands.
