Multiple point electrical stimulation of ulnar and median nerves. (1/549)

A computer-assisted method of isolating single motor units (MUs) by multiple point stimulation (MPS) of peripheral nerves is described. MPS was used to isolate 10-30 single MUs from thenar and hypothenar muscles of normal subjects and patients with entrapment neuropathies, with the original purpose of obtaining a more representative mean motor unit potential for estimating the number of MUs in a muscle. The two important results that evolved from MPS however, were: (1) in the absence of 'alternation' MUs were recruited in an orderly pattern from small to large, and from longer to shorter latencies by graded electrical stimulation in both normal and pathological cases, (2) a comparison of the sizes of MUs recruited by stimulation proximal and distal to the elbow suggested that axonal branching can occur in the forearm 200 mm or more proximal to the motor point in intrinsic hand muscles.  (+info)

In vivo finger flexor tendon force while tapping on a keyswitch. (2/549)

Force may be a risk factor for musculoskeletal disorders of the upper extremity associated with typing and keying. However, the internal finger flexor tendon forces and their relationship to fingertip forces during rapid tapping on a keyswitch have not yet been measured in vivo. During the open carpal tunnel release surgery of five human subjects, a tendon-force transducer was inserted on the flexor digitorum superficialis of the long finger. During surgery, subjects tapped with the long finger on a computer keyswitch, instrumented with a keycap load cell. The average tendon maximum forces during a keystroke ranged from 8.3 to 16.6 N (mean = 12.9 N, SD = 3.3 N) for the subjects, four to seven times larger than the maximum forces observed at the fingertip. Tendon forces estimated from an isometric tendon-force model were only one to two times larger than tip force, significantly less than the observed tendon forces (p = 0.001). The force histories of the tendon during a keystroke were not proportional to fingertip force. First, the tendon-force histories did not contain the high-frequency fingertip force components observed as the tip impacts with the end of key travel. Instead, tendon tension during a keystroke continued to increase throughout the impact. Second, following the maximum keycap force, tendon tension during a keystroke decreased more slowly than fingertip force, remaining elevated approximately twice as long as the fingertip force. The prolonged elevation of tendon forces may be the result of residual eccentric muscle contraction or passive muscle forces, or both, which are additive to increasing extensor activity during the release phase of the keystroke.  (+info)

Nonoccupational risk factors for carpal tunnel syndrome. (3/549)

OBJECTIVE: To examine the relation between selected nonoccupational risk factors and surgery for carpal tunnel syndrome. DESIGN: Case-control study using an administrative database. PARTICIPANTS: Enrollees of New Jersey Medicare or Medicaid programs during 1989 to 1991. MEASUREMENTS: The outcome of interest was open or endoscopic carpal tunnel release. We examined the relation between carpal tunnel release and diabetes mellitus, thyroid disease, inflammatory arthritis, hemodialysis, pregnancy, use of corticosteroids, and hormone replacement therapy. MAIN RESULTS: In multivariate models, inflammatory arthritis was strongly associated with carpal tunnel release (odds ratio [OR] 2.9; 95% confidence interval [CI] 2.2, 3.8). However, corticosteroid use also appeared to be associated with a greater likelihood of undergoing carpal tunnel release, even in the absence of inflammatory arthritis (OR 1.6; 95% CI 1.2, 2.1). Diabetes had a weak but significant association with carpal tunnel release (OR 1.4; 95% CI 1.2, 1.8), as did hypothyroidism (OR 1.7; 95% CI 1.1, 2.8), although patients with hyperthyroidism did not have any change in risk. Women who underwent carpal tunnel release were almost twice as likely to be users of estrogen replacement therapy as controls (OR 1.8; 95% CI 1.0, 3.2). CONCLUSIONS: Although inflammatory arthritis is the most important nonoccupational risk factor for carpal tunnel release, these data substantiate the increase in risk associated with diabetes and untreated hypothyroidism. Further investigation in detailed clinical studies will be necessary to confirm whether changes in corticosteroid use and hormone replacement therapy offer additional means of risk reduction for this common condition.  (+info)

Conduction block in carpal tunnel syndrome. (4/549)

Wrist extension was performed in six healthy subjects to establish, first, whether it would be sufficient to produce conduction block and, secondly, whether the excitability changes associated with this manoeuvre are similar to those produced by focal nerve compression. During maintained wrist extension to 90 degrees, all subjects developed conduction block in cutaneous afferents distal to the wrist, with a marked reduction in amplitude of the maximal potential by >50%. This was associated with changes in axonal excitability at the wrist: a prolongation in latency, a decrease in supernormality and an increase in refractoriness. These changes indicate axonal depolarization. Similar studies were then performed in seven patients with carpal tunnel syndrome. The patients developed conduction block, again with evidence of axonal depolarization prior to block. Mild paraesthesiae were reported by all subjects (normals and patients) during wrist extension, and more intense paraesthesiae were reported following the release of wrist extension. In separate experiments, conduction block was produced by ischaemic compression, but its development could not be altered by hyperpolarizing currents. It is concluded that wrist extension produces a 'depolarization' block in both normal subjects and patients with carpal tunnel syndrome, much as occurs with ischaemic compression, but that this block cannot be altered merely by compensating for the axonal depolarization. It is argued that conduction slowing need not always be attributed to disturbed myelination, and that ischaemic compression may be sufficient to explain some of the intermittent symptoms and electrodiagnostic findings in patients with carpal tunnel syndrome, particularly when it is of mild or moderate severity.  (+info)

Agreement between symptom surveys, physical examination procedures and electrodiagnostic findings for the carpal tunnel syndrome. (5/549)

OBJECTIVES: The goal of this study was to evaluate the concordance between various clinical screening procedures for carpal tunnel syndrome. METHODS: The subject population consisted of 824 workers from 6 facilities. The evaluated procedures included bilateral sensory nerve conduction testing, physical examinations, and symptom surveys, including hand diagrams. The agreement between the outcomes of various combinations of these procedures was assessed by determining the kappa coefficient. RESULTS: There was relatively poor overlap between the reported symptoms, the physical examination findings, and the electrodiagnostic results consistent with carpal tunnel syndrome. Overall, only 23 out of 449 subjects (5%) with at least 1 positive finding met all 3 criteria (symptoms, physical examination findings, and electrophysiological results consistent with carpal tunnel syndrome) for the dominant hand. The screening procedures showed poor or no agreement with kappa values ranging between 0.00 and 0.18 for all the case definitions evaluated for carpal tunnel syndrome. CONCLUSIONS: The poor overlap between the various screening procedures warns against the use of electrodiagnostic findings alone without the symptom presentation being considered. The results of this study also point to a need for the further development and evaluation of methods for detecting carpal tunnel syndrome.  (+info)

Musculoskeletal manifestations in a population-based cohort of patients with giant cell arteritis. (6/549)

OBJECTIVE: To define musculoskeletal manifestations occurring in a population-based cohort of patients with giant cell (temporal) arteritis (GCA). METHODS: The records of 128 patients with GCA diagnosed over a 42-year-period (1950-1991) in Olmsted County, MN, were reviewed for the presence and type of musculoskeletal manifestations, their relationship to the onset and course of GCA, and their response to treatment. RESULTS: Fifty-three patients (41%) developed polymyalgia rheumatica: 23 before, 17 concurrently with, and 13 after the diagnosis of GCA. Thirty patients (23%) developed 1 or more peripheral musculoskeletal manifestations. These included peripheral synovitis in 23 patients (6 of whom fulfilled criteria for rheumatoid arthritis), distal extremity swelling with pitting edema in 13, distal swelling without pitting in 5, tenosynovitis in 6, and carpal tunnel syndrome in 2. Fifty-seven episodes of peripheral manifestations occurred in the 30 patients at different times during the course of GCA. In most, the onset of PMR and peripheral manifestations was within 2 years of the diagnosis of GCA. CONCLUSION: Musculoskeletal symptoms in GCA are common and varied. Most appear linked temporally to the underlying GCA, indicating that the nature of this illness and its clinical expression are broader than often considered.  (+info)

Beta2-microglobulin and renal bone disease. (7/549)

Dialysis-related amyloidosis (DRA) is characterized by amyloid deposition mainly in bone and joint structures, presenting as carpal tunnel syndrome, destructive arthropathy, and subchondral bone erosions and cysts. Beta2-microglobulin has been demonstrated to be a major constituent of amyloid fibrils. DRA occurs not only in patients undergoing long-term hemodialysis, but also in patients undergoing continuous ambulatory peritoneal dialysis. The incidence of this complication increases with the duration of dialytic therapy and the age of the patient. While a definitive diagnosis of DRA can be made only by histological findings, various imaging techniques often support diagnosis. The molecular pathogenesis of this complication remains unknown. Recent studies have, however, suggested a pathogenic role of a new modification of beta2-microglobulin in amyloid fibrils--that is, the advanced glycation end-products (AGEs) formed with carbonyl compounds derived from autoxidation of both carbohydrates and lipids ("carbonyl stress"). Therapy for DRA is limited to symptomatic approaches and surgical removal of amyloid deposits. High-flux biocompatible dialysis membranes could be used to delay DRA development.  (+info)

The wrist of the formula 1 driver. (8/549)

OBJECTIVES: During formula 1 driving, repetitive cumulative trauma may provoke nerve disorders such as nerve compression syndrome as well as osteoligament injuries. A study based on interrogatory and clinical examination of 22 drivers was carried out during the 1998 formula 1 World Championship in order to better define the type and frequency of these lesions. METHODS: The questions investigated nervous symptoms, such as paraesthesia and diminishment of sensitivity, and osteoligamentous symptoms, such as pain, specifying the localisation (ulnar side, dorsal aspect of the wrist, snuff box) and the effect of the wrist position on the intensity of the pain. Clinical examination was carried out bilaterally and symmetrically. RESULTS: Fourteen of the 22 drivers reported symptoms. One suffered cramp in his hands at the end of each race and one described a typical forearm effort compartment syndrome. Six drivers had effort "osteoligamentous" symptoms: three scapholunate pain; one medial hypercompression of the wrist; two sequellae of a distal radius fracture. Seven reported nerve disorders: two effort carpal tunnel syndromes; one typical carpal tunnel syndrome; one effort cubital tunnel syndrome; three paraesthesia in all fingers at the end of a race, without any objective signs. CONCLUSIONS: This appears to be the first report of upper extremity disorders in competition drivers. The use of a wrist pad to reduce the effects of vibration may help to prevent trauma to the wrist in formula 1 drivers.  (+info)

Carpal tunnel syndrome - Animation Typing all day on a computer keyboard can be tough on your wrists. If you type for hours at a time, day after day, eventually you may really start to feel some discomfort. The numbness, pain, and tingling you feel in your hands and wrists may be carpal tunnel syndrome, and it can have such a big effect on your life that you may eventually need surgery to treat it. Doing any repetitive motion with your hands, whether its typing, sewing, driving, or writing, can cause carpal tunnel syndrome. The condition gets its name from an area in your wrist called the carpal tunnel. Running through this tunnel is the median nerve, which sends feeling to your palm and most of your fingers. When you do the same task over and over again, especially flexing and extending the wrist, you put pressure on the median nerve. Over time, it swells up inside the carpal tunnel until its so tight in there that the nerve gets pinched. The classic symptoms of carpal tunnel syndrome are ...

Based on the Bureau of Labor Statistics, carpal tunnel syndrome afflicts roughly 8 million Americans per year. It genuinely is second only to back surgery inside the number of musculoskeletal surgeries performed every year. But, couple of men and females unquestionably know what this syndrome is.. The word carpal comes from the Greek word karpos, meaning wrist. There is a smaller space among the wrist joint and its surrounding fibrous tissues, which is called the carpal tunnel. It could be by indicates of this tunnel that a median nerve receives all of its sensations of the fingers. When this median nerve is irritated, the result is carpal tunnel syndrome.. The symptoms of this syndrome consist of discomfort, numbness, and tingling inside the fingers or hands, particularly the thumb, index, middle, or ring fingers. Loss of sensation in the fingers and weakness inside the hands can also occur.. The Obvious and Unusual Causes of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome. Carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS) is ...
Carpal Tunnel Syndrome. The Carpal tunnel syndrome is the most common source of pain and numbness in the hands. This is a commonly occurring disorder that is caused due to the compression of the median nerve in the wrist. The median nerve serves for carrying sensory signals to the thumb, index and middle fingers. The median nerve and the flexing tendons of the hand pass through the carpal tunnel. The inflammation of the space around the flexing tendons also leads to the carpal tunnel syndrome. It is a debilitating disorder that causes difficulty in grasping and holding things.. The Causes. The root cause of the carpal tunnel syndrome is the excess pressure on the median nerve. This occurs due to excessive strain on the wrist. Activities that put too much tension in the wrist lead to this condition. Other medical factors such as rheumatoid arthritis, diabetes and problems like menopause and hypothyroidism are also common causative factors.. Occupational Hazard. Workers involved in certain ...
Thread carpal tunnel release (TCTR) is a minimally-invasive procedure of performing carpal tunnel release using a piece of surgical dissecting thread as a dividing element. This is instead of using a scalpel as in the situation of open carpal tunnel release (OCTR) or endoscopic carpal tunnel release (ECTR). Play media Under the real-time guidance of ultrasound, a spinal needle is inserted at the palm of the hand and advanced underneath the transverse carpal ligament (TCL) and exiting at the wrist. Through this needle, a fine smooth thread (0.2 mm in diameter) is fed. The needle is inserted again in the same fashion over the TCL and the thread is again looped through back out of the original needle entry. The thread surrounds the TCL and is manipulated in a back and forth motion to divide the TCL. Once complete, the thread is removed and two small bandages are placed on the needle puncture sites. The procedure takes 10 minutes in a clinic based office. The frictional effect of a sliding thread ...
Extractions: Michael G. Brown, M.D. Along about the same time, the media publicized the fact that some individuals involved in repetitive type work activities, such as those who work on computers all day, have an increased incidence of carpal tunnel syndrome. In point of fact, most people who come in the hand surgeon s office with carpal tunnel syndrome are perplexed as to why they have this disease because they do not engage in classical repetitive type work activities. Carpal tunnel syndrome is easily understood if one begins with the anatomy. The carpal tunnel is formed by a semi-circle of carpal bones on three sides. The fourth side that forms the carpal tunnel is the transverse carpal ligament. The ligament cannot stretch. Thus the carpal tunnel is a defined space that cannot enlarge. There is only so much room in that opening. Through that opening passes the median nerve, nine tendons, and spongy tissue around the tendons called tenosynovium. We start our lives with that extra space. When ...
Home Remedies. While pain medications are part of the effective medical regimen for carpal tunnel syndrome, home remedies also serve as natural means to manage the condition.. Cold Application. Applying coldness to the hand is one of the remedies for carpal tunnel syndrome. According to experts, as cited by Everyday Health, applying ice on the wrist helps relieve pain from the condition. Carpal tunnel syndrome presents swelling that results to the compression of the median nerve and pain, so applying ice on the area helps decrease inflammation; thus, it relieves pain.. Splint. A splint can help a person relieve pain from carpal tunnel syndrome. According to Best Health Magazine, the person may bend his hand and wrist under his pillow; this applies pressure on the wrist while holding the fingers in a neutral position. As a result, the person will not be awakened by the pain due to pressure on the median nerve. As per the publication, splints are available in a pharmacy or medical supply store, so ...

Because the finger and wrist muscles are constantly overused in one-way movement patterns, (Gripping, squeezing, typing, etc.) a muscle imbalance develops, causing the carpal bones to shift, in turn, making the carpal tunnel smaller and impinging the structures within, resulting in painful and debilitating symptoms.. What are the Symptoms of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome?. Tingling. Numbness. Paresthesia (Pins & needles). Loss of grip-strength / coordination. Sensations involving tightness, discomfort, stiffness and pain on the front side of the hand and wrist may be present in carpal tunnel, but may also be symptoms of a general repetitive strain injury.. The only true telltale signs of carpal tunnel syndrome that you need to be aware of affect the thumb, index, middle and sometimes one-half of the ring finger. (All of the fingers and symptoms listed do not have to be experienced simultaneously for you to have carpal tunnel syndrome.). If you have symptoms in your entire ring and/or little finger ...
Carpal Tunnel Syndrome is a common, painful, progressive condition that is caused by compression of the median nerve at the wrist area. Common symptoms of carpal tunnel syndrome include numbness and tingling sensation in all the fingers except little finger; pain and burning sensation in hand and wrist that may radiate up the arm and elbow; and weakness in hand with diminished grip strength Exact causes of the condition are not known. However certain factors increase the risk of developing carpal tunnel syndrome and they include congenital abnormalities, repetitive motion of hand and wrists, fractures and sprains, hormonal imbalance, and other medical conditions such as hypothyroidism, rheumatoid arthritis, diabetes, obesity, gout, overactive pituitary gland, or the presence of a cyst or tumor in the canal.. Carpal tunnel syndrome may be treated using conservative approaches or surgery. The conservative treatments include:. ...
If you are battling with Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, you may be wondering whether chiropractic treatments can help. Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, also known as CTS, is an injury that happens when the median nerve running from your forearm to your hand is compressed within the bones, nerves, ligaments, tendons, and blood vessel found in the narrow passage of the wrist - the carpal tunnel. The result is a great deal of pain and also numbness that occurs in the wrist as well as the hand. CTS is most commonly triggered by repetitive strain and is common in jobs that require a great deal of hand movements. It can also be triggered by diabetes, fluid retention during pregnancy, menopause, arthritis, and injuries to the wrist. The good news is that CTS can be treated. There are a few different treatment options, with chiropractic treatments being one of the gentlest and most effective. Keep reading to find out how chiro can help with Carpal Tunnel Syndrome.. ...
The SSA may also look at any imaging tests that are available, along with the records of various treatments you have tried. It might be determined that a primary condition, such as arthritis, diabetes, lupus or kidney failure, has caused or contributed to the onset of carpal tunnel syndrome. In these cases, the SSA may make a determination that you qualify for benefits based on the primary condition and the debilitating effects it has had on the rest of your body.. SSA will also consider your age, education, and the type of work you have done in the past to see if you have any work-related skills that can be used even with the limitations from your carpal tunnel syndrome.. Its important to note that there are no standards for carpal tunnel syndrome in the SSAs blue book of qualifying conditions. If youre going to qualify for benefits, it is usually because you can prove another condition that does qualify, or you have other adverse vocational factors.. Because carpal tunnel disability cases ...
Background: Carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS) is the most commonly observed entrapment neuropathy. An Extremely frequent forearm neuropathy occurring in the carpal tunnel of the wrist due to median nerve trapping. With an aim to record the results of the open carpal tunnel release in patients willing to participate in the study, this was planned with certain objectives 1. To know the demography of the attending patients with complaints 2. To ascertain the functional outcome after the Open Carpal Tunnel Release in patients of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome. Methodology: A prospective study design was employed after appropriate approval in our institute from IEC body. The study was done starting Dec 2019 till Feb 2020. After 6 weeks, 3 months and 6 months, patients were followed up postoperatively. All subjects were produced preoperatively and at each follow-up visit to fill out the Quick DASH form. Data Analysis - Data was inserted into Excel sheets, and using SPSS version 21 software, statistical analysis of ...
Carpal Tunnel Syndrome Carpal Tunnel Syndrome is a complex of symptoms resulting from compression of the median nerve in the carpal tunnel, with pain and burning or tingling in the fingers and hand, sometimes up to the elbow.

Doctors have written about carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS) for more than 100 years, but it took the emergence of computer keyboards for the condition to achieve national prominence. In fact, any activity that constantly strains the wrist, from guitar playing to rowing, from assembly line work to knitting, can bring it on. Sometimes, however, carpal tunnel syndrome can begin without any apparent cause at all. Carpal tunnel syndrome usually starts as repeated local irritations or different medical conditions ...

Carpus is a word derived from the Greek word karpos, which means wrist. The wrist is surrounded by a band of fibrous tissue that normally functions as a support for the joint. The tight space between this fibrous band and the wrist bone is called the carpal tunnel. The median nerve passes through the carpal tunnel to receive sensations from the thumb, index, and middle fingers of the hand. Any condition that causes swelling or a change in position of the tissue within the carpal tunnel can squeeze and irritate the median nerve. Irritation of the median nerve in this manner causes tingling and numbness of the thumb, index, and the middle fingers - a condition known as carpal tunnel syndrome. ...
CARPAL TUNNEL SYNDROME: A New Way of Thinking. I recently attended a great seminar on The Management of Common Conditions of the Upper Extremity put on by LACC. Paul Hooper, John Saringe, and Gary Schultz each made excellent presentations -- the best seminar Ive attended in my 15 years of obligatory weekend learning.. A great deal of time was spent on Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, or more accurately, the management of symptoms of the wrist and hand. Paul Hooper covered the topic thoroughly and magnanimously admitted what we all know from practice -- very seldom is carpal tunnel syndrome cured -- we just manage the cases and give as much relief as possible.. The symptoms of CTS very seldom go away. Well, maybe for a while, but they seem to recur over and over again in those increasing numbers of sufferers. Symptoms usually appear on one side, the dominant hand, then start showing up on the other side in many cases. Bilateral symptoms are not uncommon.. Etiology was discussed briefly and included the ...

Carpal tunnel syndrome is the most common entrapment neuropathy seen in clinical practice. Surgery to decompress the compressed median nerve by simple division of the transverse carpal ligament gave good results in most of the series studied. This procedure can be carried out under various forms of anaesthesia. We used local anaesthesia which we find to be simple and effective in achieving complete decompression of the entrapped nerve. By a retrospective study of 76 consecutive cases operated on by the senior author, it was found to have been unnecessary to revert to other forms of anaesthesia. The incidence of complications using local anaesthesia for open carpal tunnel release is not higher than other forms of anaesthesia ...
Carpal Tunnel Syndrome Surgery The carpal tunnel surgery is necessary for the minority of people with this syndrome. Surgery is considered only when: - There is damage to the median nerve. These damages are observed after performing different tests that shows functional declines in the hand, fingers or wrist. - Symptoms of carpal tunnel syndrome are severe and limit normal daily activities. This occurs when there is persistent loss of feeling or coordination in the hand or fingers, no force on the thumb, or […]. ...

Carpal Tunnel Syndrome belongs to a group of conditions called entrapment syndromes. Carpal Tunnel Syndrome is the most common of the nerve entrapment syndromes. Nerves may become trapped in various parts of the body. The nerves travel through small spaces between bones and supporting bands called ligaments. Swelling in these tight spaces puts pressure on nerves, which results in numbness and weakness. The most common entrapment is at the wrist or carpal bones results in hand numbness.. There may be nerve entrapment at the neck called Thoracic Outlet Syndrome, elbow, forearm shin (compartment syndromes) and ankle (Tarsal Tunnel Syndrome).. There may be other conditions causing the swelling, which results in the pressure that is placed on the nerves. These other conditions include Diabetes, Hypothyroidism (under active thyroid), Rheumatoid Arthritis, trauma, Amyloidosis (a rare condition associated with blood protein abnormalities). A medical history, physical examination, and laboratory ...
Carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS) occurs when the median nerve, which runs from the forearm into the palm of the hand, becomes pressed or squeezed at the wrist. The carpal tunnel is a narrow, rigid passageway of ligament and bones at the base of the hand that houses the median nerve and the tendons that bend the fingers. The median nerve provides feeling to the palm side of the thumb and to most of the fingers. Symptoms usually start gradually, with numbness, tingling, weakness, and sometimes pain in the hand and wrist. CTS makes it difficult for some people to drive, read a book, grasp small objects, or do other tasks. Sometimes no direct cause of CTS can be found; contributing factors include trauma or injury to the wrist that causes swelling, as well as thyroid disease, rheumatoid arthritis, and fluid retention during pregnancy. Women are three times more likely than men to develop carpal tunnel syndrome. The disorder usually occurs only in adults.. ...
In this video, Dr. Eric Beck, a physician from Huntsville, AL speaks about Carpal Tunnel Syndrome (CTS) which is associated by symptoms and signs, which are caused by compression of the median nerve traveling through the carpal tunnel.

Carpal tunnel syndrome occurs when the median nerve, which runs through the forearm into the hand, becomes compressed or squeezed while passing through the wrist. Carpal tunnel may occur from repetitive motion or action, injury or trauma, or overexertion of the wrist in daily operations. With appropriate workplace controls and an ergonomic configuration of a workstation, carpal tunnel syndrome is preventable. This indicator is based on claims data from the Minnesotas workers compensation system. The data is compiled and supplied by the Minnesota Department of Labor and Industry. In Minnesota, a work-related injury or illness must be reported if that injury or illness incapacitates the employee for more than 3 days or if it requires medical attention. These time and severity requirements could result in under-reporting. Also, specific occupations are excluded from the reporting requirement including farmers, independent contractors, federal employees, railroad and longshore and maritime ...
Carpal tunnel syndrome is a painful progressive condition caused by compression of a key nerve in the wrist. It occurs when the median nerve, which runs from the forearm into the hand, becomes pressed or squeezed at the wrist. Symptoms usually start gradually, with pain, weakness, or numbness in the hand and wrist, radiating up the arm. As symptoms worsen, people might feel tingling during the day, and decreased grip strength may make it difficult to form a fist, grasp small objects, or perform other manual tasks. In some cases no direct cause of the syndrome can be identified. Most likely the disorder is due to a congenital predisposition - the carpal tunnel is simply smaller in some people than in others. However, the risk of developing carpal tunnel syndrome is especially common in those performing assembly line work ...
A small study found a link between extended use of smartphones and other hand-held electronic devices and a greater likelihood for experiencing the telltale wrist and hand pain of the syndrome.. But the researchers did not prove that heavy smartphone use caused carpal tunnel syndrome, and one hand surgeon said very few people in the real world use their smartphones as much as the heavy users in the study did.. Study author Peter White said the findings suggest caution may be warranted when using hand-held electronic devices, in order to minimize the chance of developing carpal tunnel syndrome.. White is an assistant professor in the department of health technology and informatics at Hong Kong Polytechnic University.. The carpal tunnel is a narrow and hard pathway of bone and ligament found at the base of the hand, according to the U.S. National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke. It contains tendons, which enable finger-bending, as well as the so-called median nerve, which runs ...

I just read The Carpal Tunnel Conundrum your September issue and wanted to comment. I had carpal tunnel surgery on July 3rd. I was back at work (at my desk job) on July 8th (I missed only one work day, since the 4th was a holiday). My hand was in a partial cast (I had use of my fingers and thumb), but I was able to use the mouse, type slowly, write a little, and talk on the phone. The total surgery cost looks like its around $2,000. And that included a confirmation from a neurologist that my nerves were damaged. Ive heard from our workers comp people about how many days many of our employees are out. So I asked my surgeon if my case was different from the norm and she said, No its an average carpal tunnel procedure. She said some patients just prefer to stay home longer than I did. Helge: I continue to read about the advice ...
Your doctor can diagnose Carpal Tunnel Syndrome by conducting a medical examination, reviewing your medical history, and asking you about your activities and symptoms. During the physical exam, your doctor will check your wrist and hand for sensation and perform a thorough hand examination.. Your doctor may ask you to perform a couple of simple tests to determine if there is pressure on the Median Nerve. For the Phalens Test, you will firmly flex your wrist for 60 seconds. The test is positive if you feel numbness, tingling, or weakness. To test for the Tinels Sign, your doctor will tap on the Median Nerve at the wrist. The test is positive if you feel tingling or numbness in the distribution of the median nerve. Lab tests may be ordered if your doctor suspects a medical condition that is associated with Carpal Tunnel Syndrome. Your doctor may take an X-ray to identify arthritis or fractures.. In some cases, physicians use nerve conduction studies to measure how well the Median Nerve works and ...

Nerves are structures that relay messages to and from your brain. The nerve sends a message to your muscles when you want to move, and the nerve relays messages to your brain about sensations. Nerves control specific muscles, and nerves provide sensations for your body. The median nerve (the nerve that is affected in carpal tunnel syndrome) supplies messages to specific muscles of the hand. The median nerve also sends sensory information from most of the palm side of your hand and the thumb, forefinger, middle finger, and part of the ring finger.. The median nerve travels from branches off the spinal cord, down the arm, and into the wrist and hand. In the wrist, the median nerve passes through the carpal tunnel. Carpal comes from the Greek word for wrist-thats what gives the tunnel its name. The carpal tunnel is actually made up of the wrist bones on the bottom, and a tight ligament on the top. The ligament that makes up the carpal tunnel is not flexible, nor are the wrist bones. Coursing ...

27 answers from attorneys to the question I have carpal tunnel syndrome on my right hand what can I do? Last posted on February 13, 2013
The question of whether older adults can benefit from carpal tunnel release surgery has been studied with mixed results. Older adults (65 years old and older) seem to have a greater chance of developing carpal tunnel syndrome and with more severe symptoms. So finding an answer to the question is very important for a large portion of our population.. There is plenty of research evidence to support the benefits of surgery to release the soft tissues around the affected (median) nerve in the general adult population. But no one has really studied the results of surgical release in the older adult group.. One recent study looked at the surgical results for 78 adults (ages 65 to 93) who had carpal tunnel surgery. Each individual was carefully evaluated before surgery to make sure the diagnosis was correct. The most reliable test for carpal tunnel syndrome is a nerve conduction study. Only patients whose carpal tunnel syndrome was confirmed with nerve conduction studies were included. The surgery done ...
The line (Kaplans cardinal line) between the first web space and the hook of the hamate (see hand anatomy) was marked. The superficial palmar arterial arch lies just distal to this line. Another indicator of the location of the arch is the point at which the flexed ring finger touches the palm. The radial side of the ring finger metacarpal is used as the axis for the incision. The incision is made between Kaplans line and the distal carpal crease, and on the ulnar side of the thenar crease to avoid injuring the palmar cutaneous branch of the median nerve. Notes ...
With carpal tunnel syndrome, a large nerve (called the median nerve) is squeezed as it travels through a narrow portion of the wrist (called the carpa
To diagnose carpal tunnel syndrome, your orthopedist will ask about your symptoms and perform an examination of your hand, wrist, arm, and neck. During the exam, your physician will try to reproduce your symptoms to help diagnose the problem. After taking a detailed health history and performing a physical exam, most physicians can accurately diagnose the condition; however, special testing of the nerve can aid in diagnosis. Electrodiagnostic testing can be performed to determine which nerve(s) are involved, where it is, and the severity. Two specific tests that can be performed to determine whether you are suffering from carpal tunnel syndrome are Tinels sign (named after French neurologist Jules Tinel, 1879-1952) and Phalens test (developed by American orthopedist George S. Phalen, 1911-1998). Both tests put increased pressure on the structures running through the tunnel in order to verify whether or not the pain is produced in these positions. Your orthopedist can also conduct various tests ...
