Our personal injury solicitor in Marian-glas explains carpal tunnel syndrome
The wrist has eight bones known as the carpal bones. Lying on top of them are the tendons that join the arm to the hand. The space between the two is known as the carpal tunnel and through this runs the main nerve to the hand, which splits into five when it reaches the palm. If for any reason this nerve gets damaged, you may start to suffer from:
- Pins and needles, or a tingling sensation in the middle and index fingers. You may not notice it happening because it may just be in your fingertips
- Over time, the fingers and parts of the palm may become numb.
- Pain may develop in the same two fingers, and the pain can travel up your forearm.
- Dry skin in the affected areas can develop as the condition gets worse.
- Left untreated, the muscles will start to weaken and can eventually start to waste at the base of the thumb. This can lead to a lack of grip and risk of injury.
These are all the symptoms of carpal tunnel syndrome, a curable condition with the right treatment and care.
Avoiding the pain of carpal tunnel syndrome
There are many causes of carpal tunnel syndrome, many of them work-related. Employers have a legal duty to prevent industrial illnesses and diseases, and should not allow this to happen. Causes of this painful condition include:
- Repeated direct pressure to the base of the palm
- Excessive forceful pinch grips
- Constantly using vibrating tools
- Excessive forceful bending of the wrist
- Regular heavy lifting
If your employer has not complied with the rules and regulations, and you develop carpal tunnel syndrome, or any other industrial illness, you may want to contact our personal injury solicitor in Marian-glas to discuss making a personal injury compensation claim.
