Carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS) is a condition where pressure exerted on the median nerve located in the wrist causes pain to your fingers.
There are varying causes for carpal tunnel syndrome, which includes:

- Physical causes such as too much use of vibration tools like a jackhammer
- Improper hand posture when using a computer and mouse can also cause CTS.
