    Have you developed carpal tunnel syndrome? Do you need to make a personal injury claim? Call injury solicitors in Grizebeck

    Carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS) is a common condition which may affect people of all ages and backgrounds. It is not clear what causes the condition to develop initially, however certain risk factors have been isolated which appear to increase the likelihood of this debilitating condition developing.

    Risk factors

    There are several risk factors that mean you are more likely to develop carpal tunnel syndrome, including:

    • Pre-existing conditions such as diabetes or rheumatoid arthritis;
    • A family history of the condition;
    • Repetitive and strenuous use of the wrist;
    • A previous wrist injury; and
    • Pregnancy.

    What is CTS?

    CTS is the name given to the compression of the median nerve which runs through the wrist, providing movement and sensation in the fingers. The carpal tunnel consists of small bones with a tough and fibrous tendon, which acts as a pulley to move the fingers. Once the median nerve has become compressed, sensations and functions of the fingers and thumb can become adversely affected.

    What are the symptoms of CTS?

    • Severe pain in the fingers and wrist;
    • Stiffness in the fingers;
    • Increased pain in cold, wet and windy conditions;
    • Changes in sensation in the fingers; and
    • Reduced function of the fingers, wrist and thumb.

    Treating the condition

    The condition is treated initially with rest and painkillers to allow the inflamed tissue and nerve to subside. A wrist splint may be recommended to allow the wrist to be supported to carry out everyday activities. If this fails to ease the pain and discomfort, then a corti-costeroid injection may be given into the joint to ease pressure on the median nerve.

    The final resort is surgically releasing the pressure on the median nerve, which may require an extensive period of rehabilitation to overcome.
