Causes and Symptoms of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
Without proper precautions, a person making constant repetitive motions with the hand can develop carpal tunnel syndrome. Occupations where carpal tunnel is common include office workers, cashiers, assembly line workers and jack hammer operators. Symptoms include:
- Tingling and numbness on the thumb-side of the dominant hand
- Pins and needles feeling when the hand is at rest
- Weakness in grip
- Reduced ability to grasp and manipulate objects
Treatment options often involve surgery. A large proportion of carpal tunnel sufferers can never return to their occupations.
