Carpal Tunnel Syndrome occurs when the median nerve, the nerve running through the carpal tunnel, or center of the wrist, is damaged.

The human spine is comprised of a total of 23 rubber- like disks which act as shock absorbers between the vertebrae, or bones that make up the spine. The disks consist of a soft center (nucleus) surrounded by a tougher exterior (annulus). A herniated disk occurs when a portion of the nucleus pushes through a crack in the annulus. Symptoms may occur if the herniation compresses a nerve. Proper motion and alignment of the vertebrae help to keep the disks healthy.
A pinched nerve is simply another way to say a irritated nerve. A pinched nerve can occur in a person’s neck, back, and arms, as well as many other places in the body.
