Most instances of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome (which is a medical condition due to compression of the median nerve as it travels through the wrist at the carpal tunnel) are 'idiopathic' that's to say 'of unknown cause'.
It's often associated with, but is not the same as RSI. Estimates are that around 5% of the population suffers from the condition.
