    Carpal tunnel syndrome is a painful and debilitating disorder of the hand due to an increased pressure on the nerves that run through the wrist.

    Symptoms include numbness, pins and needles, and pain (particularly at night). Anything that causes swelling inside the wrist can cause carpal tunnel syndrome. Examples include:

    Possible treatments include rest, splinting, manual therapy (such as what a chiropractor would use) cortisone injections and surgery.
