How To Recover From Carpal Tunnel
Carpal tunnel syndrome is a common condition that affects many workers, especially those who perform repetitive tasks such as typing or assembly line work. It occurs when the median nerve in the wrist is compressed, leading to pain, tingling and numbness in the hand and wrist.
Carpal tunnel develops over time due to repetitive motion and prolonged periods of wrist flexion or extension. Vibrations, forceful gripping or awkward hand positions can also cause carpal tunnel. It is essential to recognize the symptoms of carpal tunnel syndrome, which may include pain or numbness in the hand, wrist or forearm, tingling or burning sensations, weakness in the hand and difficulty gripping objects.
Seeking Carpal Tunnel Treatment
If you suspect you have carpal tunnel syndrome, it is essential to seek medical attention as soon as possible. Your doctor may recommend nonsurgical treatments such as wrist splints, physical therapy or anti-inflammatory medications. In severe cases, surgery may be necessary.
You may be entitled to workers’ compensation benefits if you have developed carpal tunnel syndrome or other injuries due to your work. Workers’ compensation benefits can cover medical expenses, lost wages and disability benefits. These benefits can be crucial in helping you recover and get back to work.
