Have you developed carpal tunnel syndrome, and do you need to make a personal injury claim? Call the injury solicitors in Johnstone

Carpal tunnel syndrome is a painful and debilitating condition which is known to affect people of all ages and backgrounds. Whilst more women than men have been diagnosed with this condition, the reasons for this are still unclear.

Carpal tunnel syndrome is the term given to a condition where the median nerve in the wrist becomes compressed, causing severe pain and lack of movement of the fingers. The carpal tunnel consists of eight small bones and a tough band of fibrous tissue which acts as a pulley to move the fingers. Whilst the exact causes of carpal tunnel syndrome are still uncertain, research into this condition has discovered that certain factors may increase the likelihood of this condition developing in certain individuals.

Are you at risk?

Risk factors which may increase the chances of developing carpal tunnel syndrome have been identified as:

  • A family history of carpal tunnel syndrome
  • Pregnancy increases the risk by 50%
  • A previous wrist injury
  • Repetitive and strenuous work with the wrist
  • Pre-existing conditions such as diabetes and rheumatoid arthritis.

The symptoms of carpal tunnel syndrome

These symptoms may vary according to the individual and may include:

  • Severe pain and discomfort in the wrist
  • Lack of movement in the fingers
  • Changes in sensation in the fingers
  • Loss of function.

Treating the condition

Medical advice should be sought to ensure that the condition has been accurately diagnosed and other more serious conditions are ruled out. Once diagnosed, the treatment for this condition may vary from simple rest and painkillers to corticosteroid injections and wrist splints, to alleviate the pain and support the wrist and fingers. Wrist splints are particularly useful at night time, when the condition seems to get worse.
