Carpal Tunnel Syndrome Compensation (CTS)
What is Carpal Tunnel Syndrome?
Carpal Tunnel Syndrome (CTS) is a condition which affects the nerves in your hand and fingers. It is quite a common condition which can develop for a number of reasons, including wrist injuries and repetitive hand movements. Often the symptoms will present themselves as numbness or pins and needles, but it can progress to quite severe pain throughout your hand.
Developing CTS in the workplace is not uncommon but there are ways to try and prevent the symptoms. Carpal Tunnel Syndrome is regularly linked with office positions but it should not be forgotten that any repetitive strain can cause this condition.
Whether you work in an office or on a construction site, you can be subject to CTS if correct procedures are not put in place. Your workplace should work hard to set procedures in place which reduce the risk of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome – these including regular breaks and the provision of correct equipment.
