A Single Nerve Is Responsible for Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

Published on February 24, 2019

You probably already know that carpal tunnel syndrome can cause a burning or tingling sensation to occur in the fingers, wrists, and arms. But did you know that this sensation is the result of an issue with a single nerve in the hand?

There is a nerve that goes down the forearm and into the middle finger, index finger, and thumb of the hand; this is known as the median nerve. This nerve is housed in a canal known as the carpal tunnel.

Carpal tunnel syndrome occurs when the median nerve receives an inadequate amount of blood flow, which causes pain to occur in the hands.
