Carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS) is a condition that occurs when the median nerve, which runs from your forearm into the palm of your hand, becomes pressed or squeezed at the wrist. This can result in a range of symptoms, including pain, numbness, and tingling in the hand and fingers. Here are five common causes or risk factors associated with carpal tunnel symptoms.

1. Repetitive Hand Use
2. Hand and Wrist Positioning
3. Medical Conditions
4. Wrist Anatomy
5. Pregnancy

It’s important to note that carpal tunnel syndrome can result from a combination of factors, and individuals with one or more of these risk factors may be more susceptible to developing symptoms. If you are experiencing persistent symptoms suggestive of carpal tunnel syndrome, it is advisable to consult with a healthcare professional for a proper diagnosis and appropriate management.
