Carpal Tunnel Syndrome can starts as a feeling of numbness in the fingers or hand. It can quickly become debilitating and put you out of a job if you work with your hands.
It is often caused by repeating the same movements day in and day out for prolonged periods of time. This type of injury creates tiny tears in the fibers of the soft tissues of your body. While they don’t immediately cause loss of function, these micro-tears set up conditions for chronic inflammation that will eventually manifest as pain, soreness, tightness, tingling, and burning.
