Repetitive Stress Injuries
Carpal tunnel syndrome strikes workers in a wide range of occupations, including those whose jobs involve typing, writing, sewing, assembly line work, use of tools and driving.
Symptoms of carpal tunnel syndrome include:
- Numbness and tingling in the thumb, fingers and palm
- Pain in the wrist extending as far as the elbow
- Weakened grip
- Difficulty making intricate movements with fingers
Treatment of carpal tunnel syndrome may include medication, physical therapy, adaptive equipment (such as a splint) and even surgery.
