Carpal tunnel syndrome

Carpal tunnel syndrome is numbness, tingling, weakness and other problems in your hand because of pressure on the median nerve in your wrist.

The median nerve and several tendons run from your forearm to your hand through a small space in your wrist called the carpal tunnel. The median nerve controls movement and feeling in your thumb and first three fingers (not your little finger).

Providence Peripheral Nerve Services gives patients access to expert clinical evaluations and treatment for neuromuscular diseases. A select group of dedicated physicians specially-trained in the care of these diseases leads our team.
