Síndrome del túnel carpiano frente a radiculopatía cervical

El túnel carpiano es una estructura en la muñeca que contiene los tendones que controlan los dedos y luego el nervio mediano, que inerva el pulgar y los dos primeros dedos.

Cuando el túnel carpiano es demasiado pequeño y / o se produce una inflamación en los tendones que lo atraviesan, el nervio mediano se comprime, causando síntomas como dolor, entumecimiento y hormigueo en la muñeca, la mano y los dedos.
