About.com recently posted a new (or at least updated) article about Carpal Tunnel Syndrome: “Carpal tunnel syndrome, often abbreviated CTS, is a chronic condition in which nerve compression in the wrist leads to abnormal sensations, pain, or loss of function in parts of the hand. Find out if you’re at risk for this condition associated with repetitive movements of the hands and wrists.”
The article discusses the possible causes and symptoms of CTS, how it is diagnosed, how it is treated, and how carpal tunnel syndrome can be prevented. This is good, concise introduction to the subject. For more details, refer to The Basics of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome (also from About.com).
