    Injury claim in Sydenham


    Suffering with carpal tunnel syndrome and need help to make an injury claim in Sydenham?

    What is carpal tunnel syndrome?

    Carpal tunnel syndrome is a relatively common condition that affects more women than men, yet can affect people of all ages.  The symptoms can start gradually and may be worse at night initially.  Carpal tunnel syndrome causes:

    1. Pain
    2. Numbness
    3. A tingling sensation in the hand and fingers
    4. Weakness in the thumb
    5. Dull ache in the hand and fingers

    What causes carpal tunnel syndrome?

    Carpal tunnel syndrome is caused by the compression of the median nerve. This controls movement and sensation in the hand and fingers.  The carpal tunnel is a narrow passage of small bones and fibrous tissue in the wrist and it acts as a pulley for the tendons to bend the fingers.

    It isn’t clear what causes the compression of the median nerve.  However, there are several factors which are known to increase the risk of developing the condition:

    • Family history of carpal tunnel syndrome
    • Wrist injuries
    • Repetitive and strenuous work to the wrist
    • Pregnancy
    • Diabetes and rheumatoid arthritis as pre-existing conditions are known to increase the risk of carpal tunnel syndrome developing

    Treating carpal tunnel syndrome

    Carpal tunnel syndrome can be treating in a number of ways, depending on the severity of the condition.  For mild cases, treatment may include:

    1. Self help techniques such as rest
    2. Painkillers

    For moderate cases, treatment may include:
