Carpal tunnel syndrome occurs when tendons or ligaments in the wrist become enlarged, often from inflammation, after being aggravated. The narrowed tunnel of bones and ligaments in the wrist pinches the nerves that reach the fingers and the muscles at the base of the thumb. The first symptoms usually appear at night. Symptoms range from a burning, tingling numbness in the fingers, especially the thumb and the index and middle fingers, to difficulty gripping or making a fist, to dropping things. Some cases of carpal tunnel syndrome are due to work-related cumulative trauma of the wrist. Diseases or conditions that predispose to the development of carpal tunnel syndrome include pregnancy, diabetes, and obesity.

Carpal Tunnel Syndrome: The Facts
Carpal tunnel syndrome was a . There is nothing new whatsoever about carpal tunnel syndrome. Human beings have had carpal tunnel syndrome for as long as there have been carpal tunnels. The first open carpal tunnel release was described in 1947 and nothing changed very much for 50 years until the advent of the endoscopic procedure in 1990. Along about the same time, the media publicized the fact that some individuals involved in repetitive type work activities, such as those who work on computers all day, have an increased incidence of carpal tunnel syndrome. In point of fact, most people who come in the hand surgeon’s office with carpal tunnel syndrome are perplexed as to why they have this disease because they do not engage in classical repetitive type work activities Carpal tunnel syndrome is easily understood if one begins with the anatomy. The carpal tunnel is formed by a semi-circle of carpal bones on three sides. The fourth side that forms the carpal tunnel is the

June 1997 In recent years, reports of repetitive motion injuries have risen dramatically in workplaces across the country. These problems, frequently termed "Cumulative Trauma Disorders" are being reported at alarming rates in all types of workplaces - from meatpacking plants to newspaper pressrooms. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, “disorders associated with repeated trauma” account for about 60% of all occupational illnesses. Of all these disorders, carpal tunnel syndrome is the condition most frequently reported. What is Carpal Tunnel Syndrome (CTS)? The carpal tunnel receives its name from the 8 bones in the wrist, called carpals, that form a tunnellike structure. The tunnel is filled with flexor tendons which control finger movement. It also provides a pathway for the median nerve to reach sensory cells in the hand. Repetitive flexing and extension of the wrist may cause a thickening of the protective sheaths which surround each of the tendons. The swollen tendon sheaths, or tenosynovitis, apply increased pressure on the median nerve and produce Carpal Tunnel Syndrome (CTS). What are the Symptoms of CTS?

7. SCOI Presents Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS) is a compression neuropathy, i.e A common treatment of carpal tunnel syndrome is a Carpal Tunnel Release.
Carpal Tunnel Syndrome (CTS) is a compression neuropathy, i.e. a pinching of the median nerve within the wrist.
The carpal tunnel is a bony canal within the palm side aspect of the wrist that allows for the passage of the median nerve to the hand. Pinching or compression of this nerve by the transverse carpal ligament sets into motion a progressively crippling disorder which eventually results in wrist pain, numbness and tingling in the hand, pain consisting of a “pins and needles” feeling at night, weakness in grip and a feeling of incoordination. Who Gets CTS?
This disabling syndrome occurs more often in women than men, by a ratio of 3 to 1, usually between the ages of 30 and 50 years. Also, CTS is seen more frequently in people who tend to do forceful repetitive types of work, such as grocery store checkers, assembly line workers, meat packers, typist, accountants, writers, etc. Most patients generally visit their doctor with these complaints, and the diagnosis is confirmed after physical examination and appropriate nerve testing. How is CTS Treated?

What Can Cause Carpal Tunnel Syndrome?
The most common cause of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome is inflammation of the tendons in the tunnel which can normally be attributed to repetitive use of the hand and/or wrist. A number of sports can bring on repetitive stress injuries. The obvious sports associated with these ailments include both Tennis Elbow as well as Golfers Elbow . Just about any activity that involves repetitive movement, including rowing, skiing, archery, etc. can lead to injury. The above mentioned sports represent just a sampling of activities that stress the hand and wrist joints. Injuries and ailments that cause swelling or compression of soft tissue on nerves, such as sprains, leukemia, and rheumatoid arthritis can lead to stress injuries too. Diabetes, thyroid problems, and other systemic disorders are also associated with discomfort from stressed nerves, as is the fluid accumulation that sometimes accompanies pregnancy. Some authorities believe that a pyridoxine (vitamin B6) deficiency can also induce the symptoms.

What are the symptoms?
Symptoms include aching, tingling, pins and needles, burning, numbness or pain in the hand and in the digits served by the median nerve – the thumb, the index and middle fingers, and part of the ring finger (see diagram, above). In time, symptoms can spread to the arm and shoulder. These symptoms tend to be worse at night or first thing in the morning and are often made worse by strenuous wrist movements.

11. What Causes Carpal Tunnel Syndrome And Repetitive Strain Injuries?
What causes carpal tunnel syndrome and repetitive strain injuries? Also a look at the symptoms and treatments.
What Are The Causes?
  • Repetitive and/or static wrist and finger flexion causes the flexor muscles which 'close' the hand to develop more strength than the wrist and finger extensor muscles that 'open' the hand. This quickly leads to a "muscle imbalance" of the wrist and hand because of the lack of activities that require direct stimulation of the extensor muscles; such as opening a door or holding onto the steering wheel of a car with the backside of the hands.
  • This imbalance causes the carpal bones to shift into the carpal tunnel from the sides and from above, while the hands are in the palm down position.
  • Performing repetitive wrist and finger flexion causes inflammation of the flexor tendons due to friction within the severely compressed carpal tunnel; ultimately aggravating the existing symptoms, and leading to possible irreversible damage of the underlying tendons, blood vessels and median nerve.
Can The Symptoms Of These Injuries Be Reversed? Yes.
