What is Carpal Tunnel Syndrome?

The carpal tunnel is the narrow tunnel in your wrist containing the median nerve and tendons that flex your fingers. This channel is so narrow that any amount of swelling can cause pain, numbness, and weakness in the wrist and hand due to compression of the nerve and tendons.

Carpal tunnel syndrome is a repetitive stress injury (RSI) that can be caused by repetitive tasks in the work place. Although the symptoms of carpal tunnel syndrome can be mild in the beginning, if left untreated, there can be permanent damage.

Carpal Tunnel Syndrome is a Repetitive Motion Injury

Typing on a keyboard for extended periods is a well-known cause of carpal tunnel in office workers. However, assembly workers are even more likely to develop this condition in industries such as:

  • manufacturing
  • cleaning
  • sewing
  • meat packing

Using a cash register or any task that involves pushing, slicing, or pressing repeatedly can result in carpal tunnel syndrome. Our experienced, Fresno workers' compensation lawyer has helped our clients with workers' comp claims for many types of injuries. Let us give you the proper legal guidance you need.

How to Treat Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

There are several medical options for treating carpal tunnel. Your doctor might recommend physical therapy, which could include ultrasound, stretching, and range of motion exercises. Corticosteroid drugs are another option. They can be administered orally, or injected into the carpal tunnel. In severe cases, surgery might be needed. The surgeon cuts through the ligament to make more room for the nerve and tendons. This is known as a "carpal tunnel release." Workers' compensation insurance provides medical treatment for on-the-job injuries.
