Factors Showing No Associated Risk of CTS (Limited Evidence)
Limited evidence supports that race/ethnicity and female education level are not associated with increased or decreased risk of developing carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS).
Management of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
Endorsed by: ASSH, ASPS, ACR, ACS, ASA
Education level among females showed no significant relationship to the development of CTS in one moderate quality (Bonfiglioli, 2007) and two low quality studies (Kaplan, 2008; Wright, 2014). Race/ethnicity showed no significant relationship to the development of CTS in one moderate quality study (Nathan, 2002).
