Blanchard Valley Orthopedics and Sports Medicine

Carpal tunnel syndrome can be a debilitating condition, affecting several facets of a patient’s daily life.

This condition is named after the area of the body that is affected: the wrist. The small rock bones of the wrist, called the carpal bones, make up the floor of the tunnel. A ligament, called the “transverse ligament,” makes up the roof of the tunnel. The tendons that flex the fingers, wrist and median nerve run through the tunnel.
