Case description

Carpal Tunnel Syndrome (CTS) is a common condition that affects the hand and wrist, causing symptoms like numbness, tingling, and pain, primarily in the thumb, index, and middle fingers. It results from the compression of the median nerve as it travels through the carpal tunnel in the wrist. While professional medical evaluation is crucial for an accurate diagnosis and treatment plan, individuals can perform preliminary self-assessments to determine if their symptoms might indicate CTS.
