Carpal Tunnel Syndrome (CTS)
Carpal Tunnel Syndrome (CTS): Pressure on the median nerve causing numbness, tingling and loss of motor function (power) in the thumb, forefinger and middle finger over time. There are many causes for CTS, however, trauma plays a major role in causality when the transcarpal ligament overstreches and compresses the median nerve. Symptoms can be instant or develop over time and can also be caused by a problem in the neck, where a clinical evaluation correlated with an EMG/NCV are the most accurate tools to differentially diagnose carpal tunnel syndrome. In the EMG/NCV, the patient does not actively participate, making the results highly accurate. From trauma, therapy or surgery are required, as this problem is usually progressive over time.
