Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, or CTS, is a prevalent condition that affects many Americans annually. CTS symptoms are usually seen in older adults after the age of 45 and more women suffer from the syndrome than men; CTS symptoms happen more when sleeping due to the hand positions of patients (Sevy & Varacallo, 2021). Sevy and Varacallo (2021) state that extended use of the hand can exacerbate the condition. In addition to overuse of the hand, comorbidities, which is when a patient has one or more condition(s) in addition to an existing one like CTS, can cause symptoms to arise— Sevy & Varacallo (2021) mention obesity, arthritis, and genetic diseases as some examples of these comorbidities.

The damage sustained from a concussion may not just be physical but can also cause alteration in the chemical balance in the brain. This alteration can cause behavioral issues.
