What is Carpal Tunnel Syndrome?
Carpal Tunnel Syndrome is a nerve disorder that causes pain, loss of feeling and loss of strength in the hands. It may greatly decrease athletic performance in sports that require strong hand or wrist action, such as tennis, racquetball, squash, golf, skiing, weightlifting, baseball, football, horseshoes, bowling, archery, rowing, wrestling, boxing, gymnastics, hockey, judo or water skiing. The main causes of a Carpal Tunnel Syndrome are (1) Pressure on the median nerve of the wrist caused by swollen, inflamed or scarred tissue. The sources of pressure include: (1) Inflammation of the wrist tendon sheaths, a likely result of any sport that requires gripping or squeezing. (2)Fracture of the forearm.(3) Sprain or dislocation of the wrist. (4) Work that requires strong hand or wrist action(computer, factory and cashier work, some types of music).
