    Need help to make your no win no fee* Branston personal injury compensation claim for Carpal Tunnel Syndrome?

    Carpal Tunnel Syndrome is a common condition which can develop slowly and become very painful and debilitating for the casualty. Although the cause of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome isn’t certain, it is known to affect people of all ages and backgrounds and is more common in women than men.

    The Carpal Tunnel

    The Carpal Tunnel is located in the wrist and comprises of a series of small bones and a band of tough tissue which acts as a pulley to move the fingers. The median nerve runs through this tunnel and is responsible for sensitivity and movement of the fingers. Symptoms of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome develop when the median nerve becomes compressed.  

    The symptoms of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

    Carpal Tunnel Syndrome is a collection of symptoms which arise when the median nerve becomes compressed, including:

    • Pins and needles in the index, ring and middle fingers and thumb.
    • Pain and extreme discomfort in the index, ring and middle fingers and thumb.
    • Numbness in the index, ring and middle fingers and thumb.
    • More painful in the morning and at night which can cause insomnia.
    • Becoming less sensitive to touch.
    • Weakness in the thumb when holding something.
    • Dry skin, swelling and changes in skin colour of the hand.
    • Prickling and burning sensation in the hands.
    • Dull ache and discomfort in the hands, forearm and upper arm.
    • Symptoms may develop in one hand initially and then affect both hands eventually.

    Common risk factors

    Certain risk factors have been identified which may mean that you are at an increased risk of developing this painful condition, including:

    1. Family history
    2. Under-active thyroid gland
    3. Pregnancy
    4. Previous wrist injury
    5. Pre-existing conditions such as diabetes and rheumatoid arthritis
    6. Repetitive and strenuous use of the wrist

    Treating Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

    Rest and painkillers may be suggested for mild to moderate pain. A wrist splint may be given to support the wrist in order to perform normal activities and if symptoms worsen and become severe, then surgery may be recommended to relieve the pressure on the median nerve.
