    Developed Carpal Tunnel Syndrome and need answers? Let the injury lawyers in Winchmore Hill take the strain out of making your claim!

    Carpal Tunnel Syndrome is a common injury that can affect people of all ages and all backgrounds.  However, it has been found that more women than men are affected by this debilitating condition, but the reasons for this are not clear!

    I have painful wrists. Is this Carpal Tunnel Syndrome?

    Carpal Tunnel Syndrome is caused by the compression of the median nerve which runs through the Carpal Tunnel in the wrist.  The median nerve is responsible for the sensation and movement of the fingers, and once affected by the syndrome the fingers and thumb are painful to move.

    The Carpal Tunnel consists of eight small bones and a tough band of fibrous tendon.  This tendon acts like a pulley and moves the fingers and hand.

    Carpal Tunnel Syndrome should be diagnosed by a medical practitioner and any pain in the wrists should be investigated.

    What are the symptoms of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome?

    • painful movement of the index and first fingers and thumb
    • pins and needles in the same fingers and thumb
    • loss of grip in the thumb
    • muscle wasting at the base of the thumb if the condition is ignored

    Can Carpal Tunnel Syndrome be prevented?

    It is unclear what causes the median nerve to become compressed in the first place, so it may be difficult to prevent the condition developing. It can be cured if found in time.
