The Carpal tunnel (or Carpal Tunnel syndrome) is one of the most common hand disorders. Carpal tunnel is caused by forceful and repetitive movements of the hand and wrist, often affecting people who perform repetitive hand and wrist work on a day-to-day basis.
Carpal tunnel is also commonly experienced by people who work on a computer for several hours a day, as well as passionate gardeners, bodybuilders and cyclists.
Anatomy of Carpal Tunnel
The carpal tunnel is a narrow compartment at the base of the palm, which is surrounded on three sides by the carpal bones and on the fourth side by ligaments. Nine tendons and the median nerve pass through the Carpal tunnel. The median nerve conveys information in the form of impulses from the central nervous system to the hand.
When tendons are injured or swollen, this reduces the space in the carpal tunnel, causing compression of the median nerve. Compression and irritation of the median nerve cause pain, numbness, tingling, weakness and other typical signs and symptoms.
Tip: It is important to try to implement a relaxing regime in the early stages of carpal tunnel, as well as applying natural products that reduce inflammation, and relieve swelling and pain. Immobilise your hands with a splint during the day or at least at night. Do not use heat compresses or heat creams as these may worsen carpal tunnel symptoms.
