Carpal tunnel syndrome can cause feelings of numbness, tingling or weakness in the hand and fingers. The condition is due to pressure on a nerve (median nerve) which runs through the wrist.

There are several causes or risk factors which can lead to carpal tunnel syndrome but nowadays typing on a computer keyboard is believed to be one of the most common causes.

Some factors are thought to help reduce the risk when typing: Forearms held parallel to the floor with the elbow held at the keyboard height and keeping wrists straight in a neutral position.
