Who are at Risk of Having Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

Carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS) is a condition that affects the hands and wrists. It is caused by compression of the median nerve, which runs through the carpal tunnel in the wrist. CTS can cause pain, numbness, and tingling in the affected hand. It is a common condition, affecting about 4% of adults in the United States.

Women are more likely to develop CTS than men, and it is most common in adults over 40 years of age. There are several risk factors for CTS, including diabetes, pregnancy, rheumatoid arthritis, and thyroid disease. Treatment of CTS typically involves wearing a splint or taking medication to relieve symptoms. Surgery may also be necessary in some cases.
