What is carpal tunnel syndrome?
Carpal tunnel syndrome is a painful condition which affects the wrist, hands, and fingers. The carpal tunnel consists of a passage of small bones with a tough and fibrous band, which acts as a pulley to move the fingers. The median nerve runs through the wrist and provides sensitivity and movement to the fingers. When the median nerve becomes compressed, the symptoms of carpal tunnel syndrome may develop.
What are the symptoms of carpal tunnel syndrome?
Symptoms may develop gradually over a lengthy period of time, and may become more noticeable at night. They may include:
- Tingling in the fingers, thumb, wrist, and hand;
- Reduced sensation in the fingers and thumb;
- Pain and discomfort in the fingers, thumb, and hands;
- Numbness, causing difficulty with gripping and carrying out fine motor functions; and
- Changes in the condition of the skin, including dryness and changes in colour.
What causes this condition to develop?
It is unclear what causes this condition to develop in the first instance. However, certain risk factors have been identified which may increase a person’s risk to developing this injury:
- A family history of carpal tunnel syndrome;
- A previous injury to the wrist;
- An existing illness such as diabetes or rheumatoid arthritis; and
- Repetitive and strenuous work using the wrist.
