Have you developed Carpal Tunnel Syndrome? Make a successful personal injury claim with injury solicitors.
Carpal Tunnel Syndrome (CTS) is an increasingly common condition which can affect people of all ages, backgrounds and gender. Many cases of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome have been linked to pre-existing conditions which appear to increase the likelihood of this distressing condition developing.
Are you more likely to develop Carpal Tunnel Syndrome?
If you have one of the following conditions, then you may be at an increased risk of developing Carpal Tunnel Syndrome:
- Rheumatoid arthritis
- Sustained a previous wrist injury
- Are pregnant (it does tend to disappear once the baby has been born)
- Undertake repetitive and strenuous work with the wrist
In addition, women tend to develop this condition more than men, although the reasons for this trend are not clear.
How do I know if my pain is caused by Carpal Tunnel Syndrome?
The pain of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome is caused by the median nerve in the wrist becoming compressed or inflamed. It is uncertain what causes this compression, but the effect is pain, loss of movement and sensation in the index and first fingers. The carpal tunnel consists of eight small bones and a tough fibrous band of tissue which acts as a pulley to move the fingers. This inflammation causes the movement of the fingers to become painful. If ignored, the condition can lead to muscle wasting at the base of the thumb.
This debilitating condition is diagnosed by a medical practitioner who will examine the wrist and establish the cause.
