Purpose: Carpal Tunnel Syndrome (CTS) is a trap neuropathy with sensory and motor loss. Decreased muscle strength and endurance of patients with CTS may cause insufficiency in functional activities. This study was planned to investigate the effect of muscle strength and endurance on upper extremity functionality in patients with CTS.
