Carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS) is a painful condition that results when an important nerve is regularly disturbed. CTS starts slowly with pain, weakness, or numbness in the hand and wrist. Eventually the pain moves up the arm to other parts. CTS syndrome is viewed as one type of repetitive motion injury. It frequently occurs in the hand and wrist area.
