The carpal tunnel syndrome is essentially related to our wrist which subsequently leads to numbness in our thumbs and fingers. The wrist joint is one of the most vital and delicate joints of the body, and is protected by a fibrous tissue band which supports it. There’s this thin space that exists between the wrist bone and the tissue band, and is referred to as the carpal tunnel. There is a nerve called the median nerve which passes through this tunnel and receives sensations from the fingers of the hand.
