Carpal tunnel syndrome causes pain, tingling, numbness, and even weakness in the hand, leading people with these symptoms to seek out physical therapy for relief.
Carpal Tunnel Syndrome (CTS) is caused by pressure on the median nerve in your wrist–the nerve that controls movement and feeling in your thumb and first three fingers.
Common symptoms of carpal tunnel syndrome include tingling or numbness in the fingers or hand, especially when holding an object or when the wrist is in a bent position. You also may notice the urge to “shake out” the hand to relieve symptoms. Another common symptom is pain that radiates either up the arm or into the palm, making you drop objects.
