The carpal tunnel is formed of the bones of the hand and a fibrous sheath, the flexor retinaculum. The median nerve and nine tendons of the flexor muscles of the forearm pass through this tunnel.
Carpal tunnel syndrome results from narrowing of the tunnel, due to swelling of any of the tendons or their outer layer (synovial sheath). The median nerve may be compressed as it passes through the tunnel.
Please consult with your medical professional for a complete diagnosis and treatment plan.
