Newark Carpal Tunnel Attorney

Carpal tunnel syndrome is a "repetitive motion disorder" that occurs most frequently among people who spend a lot of time either typing or working with machines. At its core, it consists of damage to the "median nerve" running from the forearm into the hand.

Unfortunately, that damage is irreversible. Although there are some treatments, the symptoms of pain, tingling and numbness are not likely to go away.

What Is Carpal Tunnel Syndrome?

The "carpal tunnel" itself is a round, hollow bone in your wrist. Along with tendons that let you move your fingers (the "finger flexor tendons"), the "median nerve" runs through the carpal tunnel. This nerve controls sensations in your thumb, palm, and fingers (except the pinky).

The carpal tunnel is a very narrow, rigid passageway. If the finger flexor tendons become irritated or swollen or the carpal tunnel bone thickens, the median nerve can become compressed, causing permanent nerve damage. The symptoms include pain, weakness or numbness that begins in the hands and wrist and can spread through the entire arm.

How Is Carpal Tunnel Syndrome Treated?

There are various methods available for treating carpal tunnel syndrome. First, at the earliest onset of symptoms, you should rest your hands and avoid doing anything that might make it worse. Various methods of physical therapy can help you manage your symptoms.

Next, you can try taking pain medicine, and if that doesn't work, you may require a surgical procedure. After surgery, you will need to rest your hands for several months.
