    Many people develop repetitive strain injuries (RSI) through repeating tasks over and over again, which can affect nerves and muscles. This is known as carpal tunnel syndrome. It is a painful health condition which can adversely impact the victim’s mobility and dexterity.

    More about carpal tunnel syndrome

    Carpal tunnel syndrome is a painful condition, with the pain occurring hands and fingers. It is caused by the compression of the major nerve that passes over the carpal bones, which is found at the front of the wrist. One way in which this syndrome develops is through continued repetitive movements, although there are other ways it can develop.

    Many people, especially in the early days of computers and typewriters, found that the typing movements caused them pain. Carpal tunnel syndrome can develop over many years, and many clients of our injury lawyers in Woodbridge who have claimed for compensation have found themselves to be in excruciating pain.

    Interestingly, unlike other recognised industrial or work-related conditions, carpal tunnel syndrome can affect people of all ages.

    What is the treatment for carpal tunnel syndrome?

    Many clients who contacted Accident Advice Helpline on 0800 689 0500 found that the initial medical response is for the affected wrist to be placed in splints. This scaffolding can be helpful, taking away the aching feeling. Should the pain not improve, you can undergo a series of corticosteroid injections. This will strengthen various parts of the wrist. Many clients find this course of treatment successful.

    Unfortunately, many clients find that the only solution left, if these medical treatments fail, is for them to undergo surgery. This can be limiting immediately after surgery. However, many people find their condition vastly improved in the longer term.
