A condition associated with swelling and weight gain during pregnancy. The nerves in the wrist become compressed resulting in a tingling, burning or numbness in the hands. It usually goes away after delivery.
(CTS) is a type of compression neuropathy caused by compression and irritation of the median nerve in the wrist. The nerve is compressed within the carpal tunnel, a bony canal in the palm side of the wrist that provides passage for the median nerve to the hand.
A form of repetitive strain injury to the wrist and hand. Making the same small motions over and over can cause swelling and scarring of the soft tissue of the wrist, which then compresses the main nerve leading to the hand. Symptoms of carpal tunnel syndrome include pain and tingling in the fingers, and in advanced cases, carpal tunnel syndrome can lead to loss of functionality of the hands. Typing at a computer keyboard without proper wrist support is a common cause of carpal tunnel syndrome. Acronym: CTS.
a chronic disorder of the hand and wrist, due to a compression of a nerve; usually caused by repetitive work that puts stress on the wrist joint and heel of the hand. Symptoms can include tingling and numbness in the hand, as well as a loss of dexterity and strength in the hand.
Carpal Tunnel Syndrome is a common problem that affects the hand and wrist. This condition, or syndrome, may be linked to jobs that require repetitive use of the hands - such as typing, using a mouse, piano playing, and carpentry.
A condition where there is a disturbance of median nerve function in the wrist as the nerve passes through the carpal tunnel. A buildup of scar tissue (inside the carpal tunnel) can lead to this surgically correctable problem. Often treated with splinting and anti-inflammatory agents.
A condition that occurs when the median nerve, which relays sensation from the palm of the hand and fingers, becomes pinched, usually from swelling of the tendons. This leads to numbness and sometimes pain in the fingers and hand, and sometimes the forearm or even shoulder. Carpal tunnel syndrome may result from long-term, repetitive motion in the fingers, wrist or arm, or from other conditions such as rheumatoid arthritis, hyperthyroidism, and multiple myeloma.
A specific musculoskeletal injury (soft-tissue injury) resulting from compression on the median nerve, which travels through the carpal tunnel in the wrist. Symptoms can include tingling and numbness in the hand, and loss of dexterity and strength in the hand.
Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, or CTS, is an overuse phenomenon and a common form of repetitive strain injury. The 'Carpal Tunnel' refers to a gap in the wrist bones through which muscles, blood vessels and nerves pass on their way to the hand from the forearm. This anatomical space is very limited to start with and the problem of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome arises when there is swelling within this small space.
A compression of the median nerve caused by swelling tendons in the carpal tunnel. Symptoms include numbness, pain, and tingling in the thumb and middle fingers, weak grip and diminished strength in the hand.
Distortion to the normal functioning of the hand, wrist and lower arm due to a worker performing repetitive duties and activities in his job function. Ergonomic seating, keyboards, accessories , customized work surfaces, adjustable workstation componets, etc. assisting in minimizing Carpel Tunnel Syndrome.
A specific Cumulative Trauma Disorder (CTD) occurring as the result of compression on the median nerve that travels through the carpal tunnel in the heel of the hand. Symptoms can include tingling and numbness in the hand, and loss of dexterity and strength in the hand.
The compression and entrapment of the median nerve where it passes through the wrist into the hand--in the carpal tunnel. The median nerve is the main nerve that extends down the arm to the hand and provides the sense of touch in the thumb, index finger, middle finger, and half of the fourth, or ring, finger.
Chronic pain and paresthesia in the hand in the area of distribution of the median nerve, caused by compression of the median nerve by fibers of the flexor retinaculum, and associated with repetitive motion, as in typing or playing a musical instrument. ?

a condition in which the median nerve is compressed as it passes through the carpal tunnel in the wrist, a narrow confined space. Since the median nerve provides sensory and motor functions to the thumb and three middle fingers, many symptoms may result.
a condition in which a nerve in the wrist becomes inflamed and presses against the bones that make up the carpal tunnel, often resulting in pain. Carpal tunnel syndrome is often caused by repetitive strain, and may also be a side effect of treatment with human growth hormone.
Pain or numbness that affects some part of the median nerve distribution of the hand (the palmar side of the thumb, the index finger, the radial half of the ring finger, and the radial half of the palm) and may radiate into the arm. There may be a history of cumulative trauma to the wrist.
Carpal tunnel syndrome is a disorder in which the median nerve is compressed at the wrist causing symptoms like tingling, pain, coldness, and sometimes weakness in parts of the hand. It is the best known of all repetitive strain injuries, and is often as a blanket term for many specific RSI conditions. See article: Carpal Tunnel Syndrome.
A common painful defect of the wrist and hand. It is a complex of symptoms resulting from compression of the median nerve in the carpal tunnel. Symptoms include pain, burning, paresthesia (tingling) in the fingers and hand.
Injury of the carpal tunnel, a nerve pathway in the wrist, that is sometimes caused by long hours of typing. The primary symptoms are numbness, tingling, and pain in the fingers caused by pressure on the main nerve to the hand. Stretching exercises, massage therapy, or medication will help mild cases; if the condition is severe, it may require surgery. To prevent carpal tunnel syndrome, typists can use a padded wrist support, take breaks and stretch the hands from time to time.
interface: An occupational disease caused by doing the same movements with your hands over and over. The symptoms include shooting pains, tingling, or numbness in the wrist, hand or finger joints. Prevention is the best way to deal with this: keep your wrists straight while you type and/or use wrist rests, lower the keyboard, vary your tasks, take breaks, sit up straight. CTS can be permanently disabling, so if you suspect anything, see your doctor now. In extreme cases, surgery may be necessary, in lesser ones, the lifelong wearing of a wrist brace.
This is caused by pressure on the median nerve as it passes from the forearm into the hand within the firm walled carpal tunnel. The pressure produces a tingling, numbness or discomfort in the radial fingers (outer three and a half digits) and there is a feeling of clumsiness in carrying out fine movements such as those involved in sewing. The symptoms and signs vary with the degree and duration of the compression of the median nerve. It is thought that repeated flexion and extension at the wrist - as is common in various work related activities - can cause fluid to accumulate and put pressure on the median nerve causing the typical carpal tunnel syndrome. There are however, other causes of neurological disturbances in the hand including those arising in the neck, from interference with the brachial plexus, and lesions of the median nerve elsewhere in its anatomical course. Such diseases as muscular dystrophy and syringomyelia may also cause similar neurological disturbance.
A common and painful disorder of the wrist and arm caused by pressure placed on the nerve by the inelastic structures of the carpal tunnel. The syndrome is most often seen in menopausal women and in pregnancy is caused by the body's accumulation of fluids.
A specific medical diagnosis for one type of WMSD. Carpal Tunnel Syndrome is a disorder of the hand and wrist that is caused by the compression of the median nerve where the nerve passes from the forearm, through the carpal tunnel in the wrist and into the hand. as the nerve Symptoms can include tingling and numbness in the hand, and loss of dexterity and strength in the hand.
Carpal tunnel syndrome occurs when pressure on the median nerve (which runs from the forearm into the hand through a rigid â€œchannelâ€ at the wrist) causes burning, tingling, or itching numbness in the palm of the hand and the fingers, especially the thumb and the index and middle fingers.
painful wrist/hand repetitive stress injury in which inflamed tendon squeezes nerve against bone in wrist. Symptoms include tingling and numbness in hand. If not treated, permanent damage, including muscle weakness, can result.
Refers to changes involving the median nerve in the wrists which causes numbness usually in the thumb, index and long finger of the hand. It may occur secondary to repetitive abuse of the wrist such as in certain occupations or may sometimes be seen with rheumatic conditions which involve swelling in and around the wrist, such as is seen in rheumatoid arthritis.
a wrist disorder often associated with repetitive hand work. Symptoms include burning, itching, prickling or tingling feelings in the wrist or first three fingers and thumb. Carpal tunnel syndrome is more prevalent in women than in men. It is one example of a cumulative trauma disorder.
A disorder caused by compression of a nerve in the carpal tunnel (where the nerve passes through the wrist); characterized by discomfort and weakness in the hand. Carpal Tunnel Syndrome may occur in people with diabetes. find all NHC pages containing: carpal tunnel syndrome
A common, painful defect of the wrist and hand. It is caused by pressure on the middle nerve in the carpal tunnel. The syndrome is seen more often in women, especially in pregnant and in menopausal women. Symptoms may result from a blow, swelling, a tumor, rheumatoid arthritis, or a small carpal tunnel that squeezes the nerve. Pain may be infrequent or constant and is often most intense at night.
Carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS) is a medical condition in which the is compressed at the wrist, leading to pain, paresthesias, and muscle weakness in the forearm and hand. A form of peripheral neuropathy, CTS is more common in women than it is in men, and, though it can occur at any age, has a peak incidence around age 50. The lifetime risk for CTS is around 10% of the adult population.
