Carpal tunnel syndrome is often the result of a combination of factors that increase pressure on the median nerve and tendons in the carpal tunnel.
Contributing factors include injury or trauma to the wrist that cause swelling, such as sprain or fracture. Other factors that may contribute to the pressure include mechanical problems in the wrist joint, repeated use, continual use of vibrating hand tools, fluid retention, or a cyst or tumor in the canal. Oftentimes, a single cause cannot be identified.
By addressing factors such as nerve mobility, wrist motion, and, along with some life modifications CTS symptoms may be eased.
