Content Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
Carpal Tunnel Syndrome can be caused by the trauma of an auto accident. Typically the hands are on the steering wheel and gripping the steering wheel when the impact occurs. This creates a jarring of the wrist area and swelling in the tunnel of the wrist where the nerves and tissues are located. This can create pain and numbness and make the hands hard to use and make it hard to sleep.
It is important to receive treatment for Carpal Tunnel Syndrome shortly after the injury occurs. The treatment can involve wrist splint and physical therapy. Surgery to one or both hands called a carpet tunnel release can be needed. This surgery is performed as an outpatient procedure by a surgeon skilled in hand surgery.
It is a very quick surgical procedure where the surgeon makes an incision that releases the carpal tunnel and opens it more fully. This creates more room and space for the nerves to enter the wrist relieving the symptoms of pain and pressure on the nerves and tissues.
It is important to have the representation of an attorney skilled in this particular type of injury in order to facilitate the proper treatment, diagnosis, and documentation for this injury so that fair compensation can be obtained.
