Carpal tunnel syndrome is a relatively common workplace injury that occurs most often in people who perform repetitive motions with their hands and wrists. Read this brief summary to learn more:
The condition occurs when there is pressure on the median nerve, which runs through each of your wrists. Your median nerves supply feeling to parts of your hands. Typing is one of the most common causes of carpal tunnel, but other causes include driving, painting, and using tools. Be on the lookout for symptoms such as weakness in one or both hands and pain extending to the elbow.
