Make your injury claim in Oxford Circus for carpal tunnel syndrome
What is carpal tunnel syndrome?
Although a common condition, Carpal Tunnel Syndrome (CTS) can cause pain, pins and needles, numbness and tingling that affects the fingers and hands. It can start gradually and the symptoms can become worse at night.
Carpal tunnel syndrome is caused by the compression of the median nerve that controls sensation and movement of the hand. The carpal tunnel is a passage in the wrist which comprises of small bones, eight of them called the carpal bones, and a band of tough tissue. It isn’t clear why the median becomes compressed, although there are several known risk factors:
- Family history of carpal tunnel syndrome
- Rheumatoid arthritis or diabetes
- Injury to wrist
- Strenuous and repetitive exercise to the wrist
- Using vibrating tools for a prolonged period
- Excessive pressure to the base of the hand
Treating carpal tunnel syndrome
Carpal tunnel syndrome is diagnosed with medical tests involving a physical examination. If required, the doctor may request blood tests to diagnose an underlying condition such as diabetes, request nerve conduction tests or carry out an ultrasound scan to establish the condition of the median nerve.
You will need treatment for carpal tunnel syndrome if it persists and interferes with your daily life. Treatments range from regular injections of steroid to reduce the inflammation and wearing splints to ease the pain and discomfort, through to surgery on the median nerve for long term and severe sufferers to reduce the compression.
