Were you looking for information about Carpal Tunnel Syndrome? Carpil tunnel is a common misspelling and variation of carpal tunnel syndrome.
The carpal tunnel is a confined space in the wrist. The median nerve runs through it from the forearm to the hand. The median nerve controls some of your hand muscles and allows you to feel sensations with your hand. Carpal tunnel syndrome (an illness affecting the hand and wrist) occurs when the median nerve becomes pressed or squeezed at the wrist. In most cases, symptoms start gradually, with pain, weakness, or numbness in the hand and wrist. Both surgical and non-surgical treatments are available for the condition.
