Carpal Tunnel Syndrome is a condition which will affect one in ten people and will likely affect you or someone in your inner circle sometime in your lifetime. In this era of technological gadgetry everyone is typing, texting and using a mouse more and more hours each day. All jobs seem to require intense use of one’s hands, so this frustrating condition is reaching epidemic proportions. It occurs when the soft tissue surrounding this narrow passage at the base of the hand, gets injured, loses its flexibility and contracts on the nerve. Small amounts of Lymphatic fluid can also build up in the injured tissue and a little excess fluid in this tight space can wreak havoc in your personal life and inhibit the use of your hand.,Whilst anybody can suffer from this debilitating condition, it is important that if you or your loved ones or friends, are in one of the most ‘at risk’ groups, that you be familiar with and keep a close watch on the early developments of any Carpal Tunnel Symptoms.
