According to WebMD in the article titled, “Carpal Tunnel Syndrome: Definition, “The carpal tunnel is bound by bones and ligaments that are about as big as the thumb. The tunnel is designed to protect one of the main nerves that connect to the tendons in your hand and fingers. When pressure is applied, it can lead to weakness, numbness and pain, similar to the pain experienced when a person has carpal tunnel syndrome.”

Treatment for carpal syndrome will be a long-term process that will help the pain sufferer get back to living a normal life.
