Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

Pins and needles in your fingers? Numbness in the hand? Worse at night? Worse at work?

Your symptoms are probably caused by nerve irritation or nerve compression (Link to Trapped Nerves page). One of the ways nerves to the hand get compressed is as they pass through the carpal tunnel. This area can get inflamed through:

• Overuse
• Pregnancy
• Diabetes
• Previous Injury to the area
• Obesity

When the nerve gets compressed in the carpal tunnel it causes pins and needles, numbness or aching in the hand.

If you have any of these symptoms you MUST get checked by a professional as they can also be caused by neck problems or Thoracic Outlet Syndrome.

Possible alternatives:

  • Carpal Tunnel
  • Ligamnet strain
  • Trapped nerve
