Carpal tunnel syndrome is a condition that causes pain, numbness, and weakness in the wrist, hand, and fingers. The carpal tunnel is a narrow, hollow space in the wrist. Tendons and one of the main nerves in the hand (median nerve) pass through the carpal tunnel. The median nerve supplies feeling to the thumb and the first three fingers. It also supplies the muscles at the base of the thumb. Carpal tunnel syndrome happens when the median nerve gets squeezed in the area where it passes through the carpal tunnel.

In some cases, it may not be possible to prevent carpal tunnel syndrome. However, you can take steps to relieve pressure on your wrist and reduce your risk of developing this condition.
