Developing distressing Carpal Tunnel Syndrome? You need help from injury solicitors in East Molesey
Carpal Tunnel Syndrome can affect anyone of any age, background or livelihood, although more women than men seem to develop the condition!
Carpal Tunnel Syndrome is a condition which affects the wrist and is quite often work related. The median nerve which is responsible for sensation and movement of the fingers, becomes compressed causing severe pain and loss of sensation. The carpal tunnel consists of eight small bones and a tough fibrous tendon which acts as a pulley to move the fingers.
It is not clear what causes Carpal Tunnel Syndrome to develop, but certain risk factors have been identified which may increase the likelihood of developing the condition including:
- pregnancy(although it usually disappears after the birth)
- a previous wrist injury
- a family history of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
- repetitive and strenuous work with the wrist
- the constant use of a keyboard
Symptoms of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
- pins and needles in the fingers
- changes in sensation in the fingers
- pain in the wrist which can move up the forearm
- loss of function and grip
Treatment for Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
The first thing a victim must do is stop the action that is causing the condition. Carpal Tunnel Syndrome is treated with painkillers and rest. Moderate cases may be treated with splints and supports to allow the wrist to be supported, reducing the pain and discomfort. Severe cases may require surgical intervention to relieve the pressure on the median nerve and remove the pain. However, surgery means that the patient will require a period of recuperation and time off work to recover and regain full movement and function.
