Got Carpal Tunnel? Let our team of professional solicitors take the pain out of your claim!

Carpal Tunnel Syndrome is a common and painful condition which can affect people of any background and any age.  Recent studies have indicated that women may be more susceptible to developing Carpal Tunnel Syndrome than men.

If you have been diagnosed with Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, then you may be legally entitled to make a personal injury compensation claim, and you should speak to your solicitors in Great Dunmow to find out.

What is Carpal Tunnel Syndrome?

Carpal Tunnel Syndrome develops when the median nerve in the wrist becomes compressed. The Carpal Tunnel is located in the wrist and consists of a tunnel of small bones and a band of tough fibrous tendon which acts as a pulley to move the fingers.  The median nerve controls the sensation and movement of the fingers and once compressed, causes considerable pain and discomfort in the fingers and hand. 

What causes this condition to develop?

It is unclear quite what causes this condition to develop initially. However, certain risk factors have been discovered which may increase your likelihood of developing Carpal Tunnel Syndrome at some point.

  1. A family history of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
  2. Rheumatoid arthritis
  3. Diabetes
  4. A previous wrist injury
  5. Repetitive and strenuous work using the wrist

What are the symptoms of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome?

Symptoms may include:

  • Severe pain in the wrist, fingers, thumb and hand
  • Pins and needles in the affected fingers, thumb and hand
  • Numbness and loss of sensation in the affected fingers, thumb and hand
  • Gradual loss of manual dexterity using the fingers for fine motor movements
  • Inability to grip and use tools and equipment

Treating Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

Once diagnosed by a medical practitioner, Carpal Tunnel Syndrome may be treated with self help or recognised treatments such as:

  • Resting the affected wrist as much as possible
  • Taking anti-inflammatory medications to reduce the inflammation of the compressed nerve
  • splint to support the wrist and reduce the inflammation
  • corti-costeroid injection into the wrist to relieve the pain in the joint
  • Surgical intervention to relieve the compression of the median nerve
