Combat Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
What causes CTS? The carpal tunnel is a small space in between your wrist bones through which the median nerve and several tendons run. When swelling and inflammation compress this space, it can put pressure on the nerve and cause pain or discomfort associated with CTS.
What are the symptoms? The condition usually starts gradually with tingling, weakness and numbness in the hands, thumbs and fingers, but it can lead to chronic pain over time.
Who's at risk? CTS is especially common for people who do assembly line work or are in jobs requiring use of vibrating tools, a strong grip, and extensive typing or computer use. Other health issues as well as physiology can aggravate carpal tunnel problems. This includes hypothyroidism, rheumatoid arthritis, diabetes, menopause, pregnancy or a previously broken wrist.
What can you do to prevent or relieve symptoms? Office-related CTS can be reduced with proper ergonomic setup of your work station. For example, you should set your desk so forearms are parallel to the floor and wrists are in a neutral position as you work. In addition:
As always, you should consult a doctor to accurately diagnose any manner of chronic pain as well as steps to alleviate the pain.
