Carpal tunnel syndrome is a pinching of one of the nerves in the wrist. Pinching a nerve in the wrist joint can be very painful. You often suffer from tingling, loss of strength or deaf fingers in your hand.
The carpal tunnel is the space at the wrist joint through which several nerves, blood vessels and flexor tendons of the arm pass. When the pressure within the carpal tunnel is increased, these structures - within the wrist - become trapped. With carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS) you are dealing with a tightness of the nerve (median nerve) that runs from the arm through the wrist, towards the hand and fingers.
