Accidents at work can occur in any sector of industry and they aren’t confined to the heavier industries such as construction and engineering. Accidents or incidents can also occur in offices and administration centre environments which can be as damaging as those in more robust industries.
Carpal Tunnel Sundrome is a condition which is often diagnosed following an incident caused by long term, repetitive or overuse of the wrist. If you, or some one that you work alongside, have been diagnosed with this painful and debilitating condition as a result of a work related incident within the last 3 years, then you may be legally entitled to pursue a claim for Hamilton accident at work compensation.
What is Carpal Tunnel Syndrome?
Carpal Tunnel Syndrome is caused by the compression of the median nerve that runs through the wrist. This nerve is responsible for the sensation and movement of the fingers in the hand. The median nerve runs through a channel of small bones called the carpal tunnel in the wrist, which has a band of fibrous tissue at the end to act as a pulley for the fingers to bend and move.
It is unclear and uncertain exactly what causes this distressing condition to develop initially. However, several risk factors have been identified which can indicate a higher risk of developing this painful condition.
- a previous wrist injury
- repetitive and long term use of the wrist
- pre-existing conditions such as diabetes and rheumatoid arthritis
- strenuous use of the wrist
What are the symptoms of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome?
Carpal Tunnel Syndrome usually develops over a period of time and symptoms may become gradually more apparent. They usually develop and become more troublesome at night initially, causing insomnia and discomfort and then the symptoms may become more permanent throughout the day and night.
- severe pain in the wrist, fingers and thumb
- stiffness in the fingers
- lack of sensation in the wrist, fingers and thumb
- inability to perform fine motor functions due to nerve damage in the wrist
- numbness in the wrist, fingers and thumb
