Suffering with carpal tunnel syndrome? Wondering how to get legal help in Sedgley?
Carpal tunnel syndrome is a relatively common condition that can affect anyone of any age, although women have been found to suffer more than men with this condition, and the over 50’s are prone to the condition as well. We are here for you if you have been wondering how to get legal help in Sedgley.
It is unclear quite what causes carpal tunnel syndrome although certain risk factors have been identified which are more likely to result in developing the condition.
- a family history of carpal tunnel syndrome
- pre existing conditions of diabetes and rheumatoid arthritis
- pregnancy, it does usually disappear after the birth
- a previous wrist injury
- repetitive and strenuous use of the wrist
Carpal tunnel syndrome is caused by the compression of the median nerve in the wrist. This median nerve controls the sensation and movement which allow movement of the fingers. The carpal tunnel is made up of eight small bones and a tough fibrous band of tissue which acts as a pulley to move the fingers.
Symptoms of carpal tunnel syndrome
The symptoms of carpal tunnel syndrome vary and may develop gradually over a period of time. They are often worse at night and may include:
- pain and discomfort of the fingers
- pins and needles in the fingers
- weakness of the thumb
- dull aching in the hand or arm
- insomnia as a result of the pain and aching of the fingers
Seeking an accurate diagnosis and treatment is essential to managing this painful condition. Treatment can include rest and painkillers, a wrist splint, corticosteroid injection for moderate symptoms and even surgical intervention to relieve the compression of the median nerve for severe symptoms.
