This study examined whether sleep quality is associated with hand function above and beyond what can be explained by pain and carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS) severity to hand function in clients with CTS. Manual Ability Measure-20, Pittsburgh Sleep Quality Index, Pain Visual Analogue Scale, and Electromyography for CTS diagnosis and severity level were measured outcomes in 53 participants. Sleep quality was significantly associated with manual ability after controlling for CTS severity and pain.
