Explain Carpal tunnel syndrome for an injury claim in Struan

There are eight small bones in the wrist called the carpal bones.

It is damage to this nerve that creates carpal tunnel syndrome and may mean having to make an injury claim in Struan.

The causes that make it possible to make an injury claim in Struan

  • Continual typing on a keyboard
  • Continual use of vibrating tools
  • Excessive forceful bending of the wrist

The symptoms of the condition

The signs of carpal tunnel syndrome are as follows:

  • It starts with pins and needles, usually in the middle and index fingers
  • In the same fingers, you can experience burning and tingling sensations
  • Eventually this will turn to pain which may travel up the forearm
  • As the condition worsens you may get numbness in the fingers and palm of the hand
  • Occasionally, some people suffer dry skin in the affected area
