Caption: Carpal tunnel syndrome demonstration. Wrist nerve locations being demonstrated by a paramedic at a general practice (GP) clinic during a consultation with a patient who has symptoms of carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS). This condition is caused by the median nerve from the arm being trapped by bones and ligaments in the wrist. It can cause pain and numbness in the fingers, and can affect hand and wrist function. In severe cases, the ligament trapping the nerve may be surgically cut to treat the condition. Photographed in Edinburgh, Scotland.
