What exactly is Carpal Tunnel Syndrome (CTS), what are the symptoms and how can Compensation Claims Today help you get the compensation you deserve?
Carpal Tunnel Syndrome is the description given to nerve damage that can occur in the hand over a period of time usually due to excessive use or excessive pressure being applied to one or more of the joints.
CTS symptoms are caused by the compression of the median nerve at the wrist. Pressure on the median nerve can affect the nerve signals which, in turn, can affect your sense of touch and hand movements.
Possible causes of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
There are certain activities that can cause the development of CTS, such as repetitive wrist movements, excessive gripping, exposure to vibration, etc.
- Working with vibrating tools e.g. jackhammers, chainsaws, etc.
- Manual labour work
- Assembly packing
- Playing musical instruments
Symptoms of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome to be aware of:
- Burning sensations
- Loss of gripping strength
- Increased pain at night in the arms, shoulders and hands
