Patient Notes
Carpal tunnel syndrome
VOL 98 / NO 3 / SEPTEMBER 1995 / POSTGRADUATE MEDICINE The carpal tunnel runs under the ligament connecting the bones on either side of your wrist (figure 1). The nerve that controls hand muscles and tendons, which enable you to bend your fingers, passes through this tunnel. Carpal tunnel syndrome results when the tunnel becomes narrow and the nerve is squeezed against bone and ligament. What causes narrowing of the carpal tunnel?
Most often, wear and tear and swelling of the tendons from overuse. Carpal tunnel syndrome is common in people who have jobs or hobbies requiring repeated hand motions. Assembly workers, beauticians, data-entry operators, cooks, musicians, and racquet-sports enthusiasts are often affected. Fluid retention (which often accompanies pregnancy), arthritis, and a broken bone in the wrist are other causes. How can I identify carpal tunnel syndrome?
Tingling, burning, and numbness in the hand are usually the early symptoms. At first, they come and go. They occur most often early in the morning or during the night and may even wake you up. Eventually, the hand may become weak and clumsy, and constant pain may extend up your arm. What should I do if I have these symptoms?

144. 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?

    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.

    What is Carpal Tunnel Syndrome? Carpal Tunnel Syndrome is due to excessive repetitive movements of the arms, wrists or hands. These excessive repetitive movements can cause injuries that could become chronic conditions. If Carpal Tunnel Syndrome is detected in its early stages, hand and wrist injuries can be treated, and recovery can occur in a few months. Severe hand injuries can also be treated, but recovery may take up to a year or longer. Carpal tunnel syndrome is a common work-related injury. It is common because at work many people use forceful or repetitive hand movements.
    What is the "Carpal Tunnel"? The carpal tunnel is the passageway in the hand made up of the arching carpal bones (eight bones in the wrist) and the ligament connecting the pillars of the arch. What Causes Carpal Tunnel Syndrome? Carpal tunnel syndrome occurs when the median nerve, which relays sensation from the palm of the hand and fingers, becomes pinched. Pinching usually occurs by swelling of the nearby tendons. When the nerve is pinched, numbness and sometimes pain of the fingers, hand and sometimes the forearm occurs. Some specific causes of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome are:
    • Normal wear and tear of the tissues in the hand and wrist Diseases or illnesses Broken wrist bones, bones that are out of place (dislocated bones), or new bone growth from healing bones that take up space in the carpal tunnel and put more pressure on the median nerve.

    The carpal tunnel is a very crowded, narrow passageway on the inside of your wrist, filled with nerves tendons and blood vessels. When you engage in quick, repetitive actions with your hands and wrists hour after hour, day after day, you can irritate and traumatize that narrow area. Inflammation and swelling might result, producing tingling, numbness, and pain in the hand. When that happens, you have carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS). Imagine a water hose with a kink in it. Even when you turn the water on full force, the flow coming out of the nozzle will not be full strength. This resembles what happens with CTS. When the median nerve in the carpal tunnel is squeezed, the result can be pain, numbness, some weakness, and eventually the inability to properly use the hand. The index finger, the middle finger, and thumb are most severely affected. If you've ever fallen asleep on your arm or hand, the sensation of 'pins and needles' that you experience upon waking is similar to what people with CTS experience. To test for CTS, doctors tap a patient's wrist area. If the patient feels a tingling in the fingertips, it could indicate CTS.

    Mac users: please note that our site is optimized for the Safari browser Environmental health Carpal tunnel syndrome Originally Published: February 24, 1995 Alice, My wife has been diagnosed with carpal tunnel syndrome. She is interested in finding out what methods are available to relieve the pain. Of the methods available is there a treatment which will not have a long recovery period? We have 3 kids and it would be very difficult for her to be able to not use her hands for much more than a weekend. Partner Dear Partner, Simple remedies for carpal tunnel include hanging your arm over the side of the bed at night while sleeping, gently rubbing or shaking your hand, and running warm or cold water over the hand. Any coexisting medical conditions should be sure to be adequately treated under the advice of a doctor. If you are overweight, lose some, and if you smoke, quit. Treatment may also include resting the affected hand at night in a splint, or continuous splinting to keep the wrist and forearm in a direct line. Vitamin B6 supplements have produced reduction in CTS signs and symptoms in some patients, with the greatest improvement seen in those at high risk for deficiency i.e. women who are pregnant or taking oral contraceptives. Hard evidence is lacking, however, about the efficacy of supplements in average-risk patients with CTS. The usual dosage is 50-100 mg a day for at least a month. Be forewarned, however, that it increases urination. Oral anti- inflammatory medication can be used, or in cases of more severe pain, corticosteroid drugs may be taken orally, or injected into the wrist. If these remedies are not effective, surgery is the last option available. The surgeon cuts the ligament running at the base of the palm, to relieve pressure on the nerve, but the pain may recur if the person's movement patterns are not changed.

    Please click on an underlined topic, or scroll down. The Keyboard
    The early typewriters used keyboard layouts with letters arranged in alphabetic sequence so that the typist could locate the keys easily. Click for History of the Typewriter. However, when the typist struck keys whose type bars were next to one another, the bars had a tendency to jam and become unworkable. Sholes developed a key layout in the 1870's which is the standard for the modern day keyboard. This is often called the "QWERTY" keyboard because the letters Q, W, E, R, T and Y are in the upper left hand corner. This deliberate poor key location reduced the problem of keys "jamming" because of the lengthy key reaches required. That is, the layout of the keys was developed not to help the operator, but to hinder the operator's speed by forcing them to make cumbersome reaches. This forced the operator to go slower so that they would not "jam" the keys. In 1930, August Dvorak and William Dealy designed a more efficient key arrangment. Letters commonly found in the English language were placed on the "home row" (the middle row) position so that they can be keyed quickly. Unfortunately, by then, the old QWERTY layout had become a standard is the dominant keyboard in use today.

Carpal Tunnel Syndrome is an entrapment of a middle (median) nerve compressed between the wrist (longitudinal carpal ligament) and hand muscles and a ligament that is perpendicular, passing across the wrist (transverse carpal ligament). The carpal tunnel is a canal that encloses nine finger tendons, connective tissue, arteries, veins, and the median nerve. An arch of this canal is made by eight wrist bones that also form an arc. The median nerve passes beneath this arc, and the carpal ligment extends over the eight wrist bones. The median nerve conducts impulses from the brain to the thumb, forefinger, middle finger, and half of the ring finger. When compressed, this nerve may cause pain, in the wrist, palm and/or forearm, and may cause an abnormal sensation in the palm and first three digits and the lateral half of the fourth digit. Loss of strength in turning outward (abduction) or opposition of the thumb may result in, and also atrophy certain muscles.

    Computer Related Repetitive Strain Injury
    "We pray with our hands and often communicate with them. We use them to eat, work, and make love. We employ them as marvelously sophisticated instruments of flexibility and strength, and when they are damaged, we anguish."
    - Keith L. Moore, Clinically Oriented Anatomy As more and more work, education and recreation involves computers, everyone needs to be aware of the hazard of Repetitive Strain Injury to the hands and arms resulting from the use of computer keyboards and mice. This can be a serious and very painful condition that is far easier to prevent than to cure once contracted, and can occur even in young physically fit individuals. It is not uncommon for people to have to leave computer-dependent careers as a result, or even to be disabled and unable to perform tasks such as driving or dressing themselves. I've faced this problem myself since March of 1994, and many friends are also affected to varying degrees. I am not a health care professional, but I hope on this page to provide a very brief introduction to RSI for the benefit of students who may not be aware of the potential for a life-altering injury. It includes book references and links to Internet resources that have been helpful in educating me about this. Don't hesitate to get in touch by e-mail, but because I have to limit my own computer use, please take the time to consult the entire page and the listed materials at length first.
