New research is being done in treating Carpal Tunnel Sydrome, including finding new Carpal Tunnel Exercises and effective types of holistic treatments, such as laser therapy and accupuncture, which are being shown to relieve symptoms.

CTS is most often the result of several different factors increasing pressure on the median nerve and tendons in the carpal tunnel. It's not actually a problem with the nerve itself; rather it is the nerve area being severely irritated.

The disorder is generally found in people whose carpal tunnel, the passageway of ligament and bones at the base of the hand, is smaller than the norm. The carpal tunnel contains nerves and tendons and runs from the wrist to the first three fingers and thumb. When swelling and thickening from these irritated tendons narrows the tunnel and causes the nerve to be compressed, numbness, tingling, and then pain can be felt.

Women are more likely to suffer from CTS than men, as are those who work requires repetitive, hand-stressing movements, such as assembly line workers and certain types of athletes. Typical treatments include simple exercisees, resting the hand, splints, pain and anti-infammatory medicines and eventually surgery. As more is understood about nerve damange and irritation new treatments are found.
