What Is Carpal Tunnel Syndrome ( CTS )?

CTS is a pain or irritation which is felt in the wrist and hand. It occurs when the ligaments and tendons get swollen or inflamed., resulting in pressure on the median nerve. It’s most common in people whose jobs require pinching or gripping with the wrist held bent. People at risk include people who use computers, carpenters, grocery checkers, assembly-line workers, meat packers, musicians and mechanics. This condition is caused by the constant repetition of particular movements, referred to as repetitive strain injury. There are a few drugs that has been proven to work really good to counter CTS pain in combination with paracetamol, here you can buy hydrocodone online
