Getting help from an injury solicitor
Carpal tunnel is composed of bones, tendons and muscles which cover the median nerve. This is the main nerve that controls sensations between the palm of the fingers, hand and some forearm muscles. When the median nerve is compressed or the tendons get injured, carpal tunnel syndrome may develop due to work stress and operating hand-held vibrating tools.
- Tingling and numbness-the physician may ask you to flex the wrist to confirm the injury.
- Tenderness and discolouration-the physician asks you to stretch your wrist then taps the affected area.
- Loss of sensation- this is a serious condition because you will be unable to perform manual tasks like previously. When the damage is acute, the patient loses feelings on the lower hand muscles, thumbs and fingers. If the victim works manually to earn income the injury solicitor will claim compensation for loss of earnings in the past and future.
- Severe pain-the doctor will prescribe painkillers and anti-inflammatory drugs. Steroid injections and gels may be given and applied in the affected area. A brace will be recommended but if symptoms become severe further tests should be done under the medical attendant’s instructions.
