Carpal Tunnel Syndrome can be caused by hand held vibrating tools. It can also result from repetitive strain injury. The condition of carpal tunnel arises from restriction of the median nerve, as it travels from your arm to your hand through the carpal tunnel. Anatomically, the carpal tunnel is the area that corresponds to the base of your palm.
Symptoms of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome include pain, numbness and tingling of your fingers and thumb. You may also experience loss of strength in your grip.
By law employers are responsible for the entire health and safety of their employees while at work or carrying out work related duties.
If you have suffered from this because of your work, you may be able to make an industrial injuries claim for Carpal Tunnel Syndrome.
