Carpal Tunnel Syndrome Causes and Solutions
What is carpal tunnel syndrome?
Carpal tunnel syndrome is a condition that causes pain, numbness, and tingling in the hand. This occurs when the median nerve, one of the major nerves supplying sensation to the hand, is pinched or squeezed while traveling through a passageway in the wrist known as the carpal tunnel.
What causes carpal tunnel syndrome?
Arthritis, pregnancy, a fall, or a repeated motion of the hand can cause the carpal tunnel to become inflamed, narrowing the passageway and putting significant pressure on the median nerve.
How will a brace help relieve carpal tunnel syndrome?
The right wrist brace will reduce inflammation and provide stability to the joint using compression and customizable stays and straps. It is recommended to wear the wrist brace while sleeping to allow the carpal tunnel the opportunity to heal throughout the night.
