Signs Preventing It Treating It ... Working Safely
The boom in computer use has spawned an epidemic of repetitive strain injuries such as carpal tunnel syndrome, a potentially disabling disorder of the wrist, hand and arm. You could be at risk if you to do repetitive tasks with your hands for long stretches of time. C omputer users, cashiers, assembly-line workers, meatpackers, sewing machine operators and musicians often get the same injury. What they all have in common are jobs that involve using their hands in repetitive motions that put a strain on the tendons of the wrist. The result is a debilitating disorder called carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS), which affects hundreds of thousands of Americans and costs employers billions of dollars a year. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, repetitive stress injuries, including CTS, are the fastest growing occupational illness.
The median nerve can become compressed as it passes through the carpal tunnel, causing pain and numbness and impairing movement of the hand and fingers.

Nerve compression is often associated with repetitive activities (e.g., typing, painting, hammering) that cause stress injury, swelling, and inflammation. The carpal tunnel is a canal in the wrist through which fibrous connective tissue (tendons), nerves, and blood vessels pass. The transverse carpal ligament covers the carpal tunnel.

Carpal Tunnel Syndrome (CTS)
How Serious Are They?
Currently, Carpal Tunnel Syndrome affects over 8-million Americans, and is costing the private business sector, government agencies and insurance companies more than 20 billion dollars annually in workers compensation alone. The overall cost of treating these disorders exceeds 60 billion annually when considering the cost of implementing ergonomic products, rehabilitation, physician visits, surgery, lost time from work, temporary help and job retraining. Musculoskeletal disorders, including carpal tunnel syndrome, are among the most prevalent medical conditions in the U.S., affecting 7% of the population. They account for 14% of physician visits and 19% of hospital stays. 62% of the persons with musculoskeletal disorders report some degree of limitation on activity, compared with 14% of the population at large, according to the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health.
  • The U.S. Department of Labor has concluded that Carpal Tunnel Syndrome (CTS) is the "chief occupational hazard of the 90's"- disabling workers in epidemic proportions.

Carpal tunnel syndrome
Carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS) is a painful syndrome that involves the hand, wrist and sometimes arm. It is seen more often in women than men and usually occurs between 40 and 60 years of age. Several nerves travel from the spine, down the arm and into the hand which allows fine movements of the hand and fingers (i.e. handwriting, buttoning and fine coordination). One of these nerves, called the median nerve, is the one most affected in CTS. The median nerve travels through a very small space at the wrist, called the carpal tunnel. The nerve is surrounded by the carpal ligament, which is a thick band of fiber that gives strength and support to the wrist and hand. When this carpal ligament hardens, the nerve is pressed into the small space of the carpal tunnel. The nerve then becomes trapped in the tunnel, causing the symptoms you may experience.
Signs and symptoms
  • Numbness in the hand and/or fingers which often occurs at night and may awaken the person from sleep.

What is Carpal Tunnel Syndrome (CTS)?
CTS has become more common in the U.S. and is quite costly in terms of time lost from work and expensive medical treatment. The U.S. Department of Labor reported that in 2003 the average number of missed days of work due to CTS was 23 days, costing over $2 billion a year. It is thought that about 3.7 percent of the general public in this country suffer from CTS.
What are the symptoms of CTS?
Typically, CTS begins slowly with feelings of burning, tingling, and numbness in the wrist and hand. The areas most affected are the thumb, index and middle fingers. At first, symptoms may happen more often at night. Many CTS sufferers do not make the connection between a daytime activity that might be causing the CTS and the delayed symptoms. Also, many people sleep with their wrist bent, which may cause more pain and symptoms at night. As CTS gets worse, the tingling may be felt during the daytime too, along with pain moving from the wrist to your arm or down to your fingers. Pain is usually felt more on the palm side of the hand. Another symptom of CTS is weakness of the hands that gets worse over time. Some people with CTS find it difficult to grasp an object, make a fist, or hold onto something small. The fingers may even feel like they are swollen even though they are not. Over time, this feeling will usually happen more often.

Welcome to’s class on Carpal Tunnel Syndrome. Today we will be discussing the anatomical occurrence of carpal tunnel syndrome in the wrists, what we can do to prevent it and treat it. Let’s begin. What is Carpal Tunnel Syndrome Carpal Tunnel Syndrome is a condition that occurs when too much pressure is placed on the median nerve as it passes through the carpal tunnel. The carpal tunnel is a small passageway through which the median nerve, as well as the tendons that operate the thumb and fingers must pass. The location of the carpal tunnel is right at the base of the palm and wrist and it creates a tight fit even in a healthy structure. Sometimes, through repetitive and improper use of the hand and wrist, the tendons can become inflamed. When the tendons swell within the tight carpal tunnel, there is no longer enough room for everything to fit comfortably and this places pressure on the median nerve. This pressure creates tingling and loss of feeling in the hand. It can also inhibit your ability to pinch you thumb to your fingers.

Golf Today Magazine, March 2000 Quote of the Month: " I attended the Region 9 VPPPA conference In Scottsdale. While there, I came across your very basic but wonderful stretching device, WristWand. Almost all of the other vendors, and many of the participants were singing the praises of the WristWand. I had been having some soreness in my wrist, from mouse use and fishing. I tried the WristWand stretch and within 2 days, the soreness was gone, and with this regular simple exercise daily, it has not come back. I returned with one for my office, and it makes an incredible difference. All companies should consider it, given the ergonomic exposures they have. "

Carpal Tunnel Syndrome Exercises These exercises have been developed and tested by Dr. Housang Seradge at the . Studies there indicate that two out of three patients with mild to moderate carpal tunnel symptoms were able to avoid surgery by using these exercises - twice the success rate of other nonsurgical treatments. These exercises are more successful in patients with mild symptoms, and are not recommended for patients with severe symptoms. Patients who have persistent symptoms despite these exercises should discuss surgical treatment with their physician. The latest version of these exercises can be found at the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons web site: Here are some exercises intended to help prevent carpal tunnel syndrome. Remember doing a quick five minute exercise warm-up before starting work, just as runners stretch before a run, can help prevent work-related injuries.
Extend and stretch both wrists and fingers acutely as if they are in a hand-stand position. Hold for a count of 5. Straighten both wrists and relax fingers.
