Carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS) is a condition caused by increased pressure on the median nerve at the wrist. There is a space in the wrist called the carpal tunnel, where the median nerve and multiple tendons pass from the forearm into the hand. Carpal tunnel syndrome happens when swelling in this tunnel pinches, or compresses, the nerve.
