About Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

Running from the forearm into the palm, the median nerve is responsible for the movement and strength of the palm-facing side of the hand. It runs through a small space between the bones and tendons of the wrist known as the carpal tunnel. Carpal tunnel syndrome is when the nerve or tendons are inflamed, putting pressure on the nerve.

Because women tend to have a smaller opening here, they are three times more likely to develop carpal tunnel syndrome, according to the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke (NINDS). The most likely group to develop this condition are assembly line workers and those who work on computer keyboards—however, the NINDS has discovered that assembly line workers can develop carpal tunnel syndrome three times more often as well.
