Carpal tunnel syndrome is caused by swelling in the carpal tunnel, which puts pressure on the nerve. This pressure can happen due to joint dislocations, fractures, arthritis, and many other causes. Symptoms can include pain, numbness, tingling, a weak grip and clumsiness. Learn more about carpal tunnel syndrome at www.handcare.org.
