Wrist and thumb mechanical or trauma injuries are common, with Carpal Tunnel Syndrome (CTS) being prevalent in people in circumstances requiring repetitious use of the wrist.

Specifically CTS is a compression of the median nerve caused by swelling tendons in the carpal tunnel.  Symptoms include numbness, pain and tingling in the thumb and middle fingers, weak grip and diminished strength in the hand.
