Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

Carpal tunnel syndrome appears when there is excessive pressure on the median nerveas it passes through the carpal tunnel wrist level, which causes numbness or pain. The most common cause for its appearance is related to the development of tasks that require repetitive hand movements, as well as age and other diseases. It is more common in women than in men and usually appears between 40 and 60 years of age.
