In pain with carpal tunnel syndrome? Let the injury lawyers in Wellington take the pain out of your claim!
Carpal tunnel syndrome is a relatively common condition which is known to affect sufferers irrespective of their age, background or working history. Carpal tunnel syndrome is caused by compression of the median nerve in the wrist when the nerve becomes inflamed.
The median nerve controls the sensation and movement of the fingers, and when the nerve becomes compressed this becomes difficult and painful to use. The carpal tunnel which encases the nerve consists of eight small bones and a tough band of fibrous tendon. This tendon acts as a pulley and moves the fingers.
What causes carpal tunnel syndrome to develop?
It is unclear exactly what causes carpal tunnel to develop and the median nerve to become compressed. Certain risk factors have been identified though, including:
- a previous wrist injury
- women are more prone to it than men
- a family history of carpal tunnel syndrome
- pregnancy – it does tend to disappear once the baby has been born
- repetitive and strenuous use of the wrist
What are the symptoms of carpal tunnel syndrome?
- pins and needles in the index and first fingers
- pain and discomfort in the same two fingers and the forearm
- loss of grip in the fingers and thumb
- loss of function
- muscle wasting at the base of the thumb if it is ignored
