Treating Carpal Tunnel Syndrome With Acupuncture

Carpal tunnel syndrome is often associated with overexerting the muscles and tendons connected to the wrist; however, there are many different factors that can cause carpal tunnel syndrome.

What Is Carpal Tunnel Syndrome?

Carpal tunnel syndrome occurs when the median nerve, which runs from the forearm into the palm of the hand, becomes pressed or squeezed at the wrist.  The carpal tunnel—a narrow, rigid passageway of ligament and bones at the base of the hand—houses the median nerve and the tendons that bend the fingers.  The median nerve provides feeling to the palm side of the thumb and to the index, middle, and part of the ring fingers (although not the little finger).   It also controls some small muscles at the base of the thumb.
