Carpel Tunnel Syndrome
Carpal Tunnel Syndrome (CTS) is a condition that affects the hand and wrist, causing pain, numbness, and weakness in the fingers and thumb. It is caused by pressure on the median nerve, which runs through the carpal tunnel in the wrist. CTS is a common condition, especially in people who perform repetitive motions with their hands, such as typing or using power tools.
