What is Carpal Tunnel Syndrome?
Carpal Tunnel Syndrome is a collection of debilitating symptoms that are centred around the use of the wrist, hand and fingers. It is unclear quite what caused this condition to develop initially, however it has been found that the median nerve that runs through the wrist becomes compressed. This nerve is responsible for the sensation and movement of the fingers. Once compressed, the symptoms of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome become apparent.
The median nerve runs through a ‘tunnel’ of small bones known as the Carpal Tunnel in the wrist. At one end of the tunnel is a band of tough, fibrous tendon which is responsible for the movement of the fingers as it acts like a pulley.
What are the symptoms of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome?
Carpal Tunnel Syndrome is diagnosed by:
- severe and constant pain in the wrist, fingers and hands
- pins and needles in the fingers, thumb and hand
- sensitivity to changes in temperature such as cold and wet weather
- loss of function for fine motor movements and loss of grip
Are there any activities which make it more likely that the condition will develop?
- A previous wrist injury may increase your susceptibility to the condition developing
- Rheumatoid arthritis
- Repetitive use of the wrist
- Pregnancy increases the risk of the condition developing
