Carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS) is one of a number of muscle-tendon and nerve related disorders that affect people performing intensive work with their hands. Hand and wrist disorders are receiving most of the attention although their symptoms are reported less often by dental workers than symptoms of neck/back disorders. The lack of data pertaining to the behaviour of Indian general dental practitioners towards carpal tunnel syndrome was the basis behind this descriptive study to evaluate the prevalence of carpal tunnel syndrome symptoms.
