    In pain with carpal tunnel? Contact the injury lawyers in Wavendon to make your personal injury claim

    Carpal tunnel syndrome is a relatively common condition that can affect anyone of any age and any background.  Contrary to popular belief, it isn’t a condition that solely affects office workers or keyboard operators.

    However, more women than men have been found to have been affected by carpal tunnel syndrome symptoms, although it is unclear quite why this is!

    What is carpal tunnel syndrome?

    Carpal tunnel syndrome is the medical name given to the condition where the median nerve that runs along the carpal tunnel in the wrist becomes compressed causing pain and discomfort.  The median nerve actually controls the sensation and movement of the fingers.  The resulting pain can cause a loss of grip and function of the fingers and thumb over a period of time.  This is why early diagnosis is so important, to prevent the condition worsening through repetitive use of the affected wrist.

    What is the carpal tunnel and what does it actually do?

    The carpal tunnel is the name given to the eight small bones and band of tough fibrous tendon that encases the median nerve.  This tendon acts like a pulley for the fingers allowing them to bend and grip.

    What are the symptoms of carpal tunnel syndrome?

    The symptoms may begin slowly over a period of time and become more painful if the use of the affected wrist persists.  An early medical opinion is advised if symptoms develop to rule out other more serious injuries and provide a treatment plan for your condition.

    Symptoms include:

    • pins and needles in the fingers
    • weakness in the thumb
    • a dull ache in the hand or arm
    • loss of grip

    Can I avoid developing carpal tunnel syndrome?

    This is difficult to answer, as the reason why the median nerve becomes compressed in the first place is still unclear.  However, if your job requires repeated use of the wrist and strenuous work with the wrist, then it is advisable to take regular rest periods to avoid overworking the wrist and causing strain symptoms to develop.
