Carpal Tunnel Syndrome is characterized by a persistent ache and/or numbness felt in the hands and wrists, and it’s often associated with office work due to the repetitive motion required at most jobs. But, many types of professionals and athletes can develop Carpal Tunnel if they perform the same motions again and again with their hands and wrists.
