WHAT CAUSES carpal tunnel syndrome? Carpal carpal tunnel syndrome is a major contributor to workmen s compensation cases. It
Carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS) is considered an inflammatory disorder caused by repetitive stress, physical injury, or medical conditions. It is often very difficult, however, to determine whether the cause of carpal tunnel syndrome is primarily due to work conditions or an underlying medical or physical problem.
Work-Related Causes
Although studies suggest that more than half of CTS cases are associated with workplace factors, there is no strong evidence of a causal relationship. It is clear that CTS almost always occurs in adults, and most adults work. Carpal tunnel syndrome, then, is very likely to be associated with the work place whether or not it is actually caused by work itself. Nevertheless, there are a number of issues that cloud the estimates of work-related CTS:
The issues and studies surrounding workman's compensation for CTS are particularly troubling:
Some companies are concerned that patients will falsify their symptoms in order to acquire workmen's compensation benefits. It should be noted that one study showed that workers whose employment made them eligible for benefits reported their disabilities just as accurately as those without the possibility for compensation.
It is most likely that the bulk of CTS cases are due to a convergence of different stresses, such as a predisposing medical condition exacerbated by work stress on the upper body along with psychologic and social pressures. [

One in five with symptoms may have carpal tunnel syndrome
July 13, 1999 Web posted at: 4:04 p.m. EDT (2004 GMT) (CNN) Carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS) symptoms like wrist pain are common in the general public, but new research shows one in five persons with symptoms may actually suffer from CTS, according to an article in this week's Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA). Researchers based their findings on a February 1997 mail survey of randomly selected persons in southern Sweden, along with follow-up examinations and nerve testing. CTS is a repetitive motion injury caused by the compression of the median nerve in the wrist. This nerve supplies sensation to the thumb side of the palm and to the thumb, the index finger, the middle finger and the thumb side of the ring finger.

Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
Carpal tunnel syndrome manifests as numbness and/or pain in the hand due to compression of one of the major nerves of the hand. The arrangement of the structures in the hand is responsible in part for carpal tunnel syndrome. These structures include the Median Nerve and the tendons which "flex" or bend the fingers at the knuckles. The nerve and tendons pass through the carpal tunnel, which (as the name states) is a tunnel which passes over the "carpal" bones of the hand. The roof of the tunnel is made of a strip of tissue which is connected on either side to the carpal bones. In this graphic, the carpal tunnel is shown with the tendons (brown) and the median nerve (red) passing through the carpal tunnel (green). When the muscles of the forearm pull the tendons, the fingers flex (see arrows). This arrangement is similar to placing a telephone cable in a conduit which already holds mechanical cables. Any damage that the mechanical cables cause to the conduit may affect the integrity of the telephone cable. Similarly, when a disease process or "repetetive movement" of the tendons damages the supporting tissues in the carpal tunnel and causes swelling or scar formation, the median nerve is compressed and its function (which includes carrying sensory perception) is affected, and numbness and pain ensue. In the graphic on the right, the carpal tunnel is seen in cross section as if you, the viewer, were going to pass through the tunnel. The roof is green and the carpal bones form the floor and walls. The pink material represents the supporting tissue which, when damaged, becomes swollen or scarred and compresses the nerve (shown in red).

152. Carpal Tunnel Syndrome - A Very Common Syndrome Resulting From Compression Of Th
Detailed information on carpal tunnel syndrome and many other conditions of the hand, wrist, forearm, and elbow.
This very common syndrome results from compression of a nerve, the Median Nerve, at the wrist. The nerve, along with a number of tendons, passes through a small tunnel at the wrist and then travels out to the fingers where it primarily supplies sensation. Swelling within the tunnel from many causes such as pregnancy, injury, overuse etc. may cause the nerve to become compressed resulting in the common symptoms of carpal tunnel syndrome, namely pain, tingling, and numbness. Treatment is often directed at making room for the nerve by a combination of rest, (which helps the swelling to go down), night splinting, (which holds the tunnel at it’s maximum size), and on occasion a cortisone injection into the carpal canal. Proper positioning of the hands and wrists at work can be very helpful in reducing swelling within the carpal tunnel. Anti-inflammatory agents are not generally useful other than for their analgesic effect. When the symptoms of carpal tunnel syndrome are persistent and significant despite appropriate treatment, then surgical release of the carpal tunnel is the best treatment. The carpal tunnel is a ring made up mostly of bone with a band of taut fibrous tissue completing the ring. Cutting the band of fibrous tissue changes the tunnel from a tight ring to an open canal thereby releasing the pressure on the nerve and relieving the symptoms. Q: Aren't cortisone injections harmful?

by Dr. Lynn Kelly, Non-Force Chiropractic
Philadelphia, PA
The "Carpal Tunnel" (carpal means wrist) is an area inside the wrist where nerves and tendons and blood vessels are contained inside a sheath of connective tissue. If you look at a piece of raw meat you'll see a white membrane that holds the muscles together ... that is connective tissue or fascia and is tough and doesn't stretch much which leads to....
....Certain conditions that can cause swelling in the carpal tunnel and put pressure on the nerves leading to the hand.
If the wrist area is smaller than usual, repetitive movement or swelling caused by hormones, thyroid conditions, pregnancy, etc., may cause irritation and inflammation, leading to a true case of carpal tunnel syndrome.
Signs and symptoms of nerve irritation (you needn't have all of them) in your hands are:
pain, tingling, numbness, weakness, feelings of hot or cold when your skin is normal temperature, "electric shocks" and/or loss of or erratic function....maybe you cannot lift or grip objects.

The Yoga Prescription: Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
Five minutes a day can help anyone get the benefits of yoga , says Marian Garfinkel, doctor of education, senior Iyengar yoga instructor, and lead author of a promising study on the effectiveness of yoga for carpal tunnel syndrome . Carpal tunnel sufferers who attended an eight-week, twice-weekly yoga class had less pain, greater flexibility, and a stronger grip than those who wore a wrist splint, the standard treatment for the condition. Whether your hands hurt because of too much time at the computer keyboard, other repetitive stress injuries, or even a chronic illness such as arthritis, "A few simple stretches can really help," says Dr. Garfinkel. She recommends the following three exercises to help you get started. Overhead arm extension (urdhva hastasana)
Do this first thing in the morning, or as a break during the day. Stand straight, with feet parallel and arms at your sides: a posture that promotes blood flow to the hands. Stretch your arms and fingers straight out in front of you, palms facing the floor. Keeping the arms and elbows straight, slowly raise your arms over the head to the 11 o'clock and 1 o'clock positions, inhaling through the nose. Be sure to keep your throat and shoulders relaxed. Lift the sides of the body, keeping the shoulders away from the head. Maintain for 15 to 30 seconds, breathing in and out through the nose. Exhale and lower your arms to your sides. If you feel the blood flowing through your hands, says Dr. Garfinkel, it's a sign you've done the exercise correctly.

Carpal Tunnel Syndrome (CTS)
occurs when the median nerve is compressed in the carpal tunnel between the transverse carpal ligament (flexor retinaculum) and the bones of the wrist and hand. In addition to nerve compression, many patients with CTS have associated problems such as: tendonitis, arthralgia, and muscle strain. This algorithm is specifically designed to serve as a guide to the management of necrologic CTS The associated problems may not respond to the treatments suggested in the algorithm. Practitioners who employ the algorithm must exercise reasonable caution because of the possibility of other coexisting problems. CTS can also be secondary to a systemic disease. Treatment of the systemic disease may result in resolution of the CTS symptoms. A complete ROS should be conducted. Diagnoses other than CTS may present with a similar clinical picture. Appendix One lists underlying conditions and differential diagnoses for CTS Carpal Tunnel Syndrome (CTS) is a common cause of:
  • numbness or tingling over the radial aspect of the hand
  • pain in the hand, wrist, and arm

Date: 6/7/97
If you are bothered by burning pain, or a tingling 'pins and needles" numbness in one or both of your hands, the chances are good that you are feeling the effects of a condition physicians refer to as Carpal Tunnel Syndrome (familiarly CTS). The Median Nerve serves the first 3 fingers of each hand. Typically, this problem will awaken you at night, and may be accompanied by an ache in the elbow or shoulder. Shaking your hand relieves the symptoms at first, but may not work after awhile. The carpal tunnel of your wrist (see diagram) contains a nerve called the "median nerve." If you have a condition that leads to swelling of a wrist, the swelling may in turn pinch the median nerve and thereby bring about CTS. Obesity might bring on CTS; so might pregnancy, rheumatoid arthritis, diabetes, thyroid problems, and the use of birth control pills. The Median Nerve lies within the carpal tunnel which also contains tendons (shown in white). In most cases it's hard, if not impossible, to pinpoint a specific cause of CTS. Numerous cases result from the overuse of wrists in activities such as keyboard work, playing Guitar, knitting, prolonged driving, or work related-duties. CTS is just one of many so-called
