Carpal tunnel syndrome is an increasingly common condition that can cause painful and distressing symptoms that can affect people of all ages. However, usually more women than men are affected by carpal tunnel syndrome, and the over 50’s are prone to the condition. Get in touch today if you need free claims advice in Seaview.
Carpal tunnel syndrome is caused by the compression of the median nerve in the wrist. This median nerve controls the sensation and movement of the fingers. The carpal tunnel is made up of eight small bones and a tough band of fibrous tissue which controls the movement of the fingers by acting as a pulley.
It isn’t clear how the median nerve becomes compressed, but certain risk factors have been identified that may mean that some one is more predisposed to developing carpal tunnel syndrome. These include:
- A family history of carpal tunnel syndrome
- A pre existing condition such as diabetes or rheumatoid arthritis
- Pregnancy, although the condition usually disappears when the baby is born
- A previous injury to the wrist
Treating the condition
Carpal tunnel syndrome should be diagnosed by a medical practitioner who can offer advice and guidance about treating the condition. Self help measures such as a wrist splint, rest and painkillers can all help to some extent. However, if symptoms persist then it may be necessary to have a corticosteroid injection into the wrist to help the pressure or even have surgical intervention to relieve the compression on the median nerve. The wrist splint can be particularly useful at night when the condition worsens.
