    Developed painful Carpal Tunnel Syndrome? Call the injury solicitors in Chiddingfold

    Carpal Tunnel Syndrome is a relatively common condition that can affect people of all ages and backgrounds. However, women tend to be affected by the condition more than men.  Once it develops, the condition may deteriorate and cause life long problems, but if it is treated early and the action that has caused it is stopped, then it is curable.

    What causes Carpal Tunnel Syndrome?

    Carpal Tunnel Syndrome is caused by the compression of the median nerve in the wrist.  It is unclear how this nerve becomes compressed initially, but the effects of the syndrome can be painful.  The median nerve controls the sensation and movement of the fingers and once compressed, movement may become painful.  

    The median nerve is encased in the Carpal Tunnel which consists of eight small bones called the carpal bones, and a band of tough fibrous tendon which acts as a pulley to move the fingers.

    What are the symptoms of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome?

    • painful movement of the middle and index fingers
    • inability to grip with the thumb
    • pins and needles in the fingers
    • changes in sensation in the fingers
    • lack of fine motor control using the fingers and thumb
    • pain in the wrist

    Can Carpal Tunnel Syndrome be inherited?

    It is unclear how the condition develops, although a family history of the condition may mean that you are more predisposed to developing Carpal Tunnel Syndrome.  Other risk factors include:

    • a previous wrist injury
    • repetitive and strenuous work with the wrist and hands
    • pregnancy but it does normally go after the birth
    • pre-existing conditions such as diabetes and rheumatoid arthritis

    Can the condition be treated?

    Yes, the symptoms can be treated with rest and painkillers initially for mild cases.  More severe cases may be treated with wrist splints to support the wrist, corticosteroid injections and even surgical intervention to relieve the compression of the median nerve.
