Carpal Tunnel Syndrome: You’ve Heard of It, but What is It?

According to the National Center for Health Statistics, orthopedic surgeons perform about 260,000 surgeries each year to relieve the symptoms of carpal tunnel syndrome. Almost half of carpal tunnel syndrome cases develop as a result of work-related activities. You’re probably familiar with the name carpal tunnel syndrome, but unless you or a close friend, relative, or coworker has developed this condition you may not know much about it.
