Primarily because of increased use of the wrists, i.e. too much strain of the tendons in the carpal tunnel (e.g. excessive work on a keyboard, frequent with manual laborers, surgeons, physiotherapists, masseuses, etc.) contributes to the creation of carpal tunnel syndrome.
Therefore, the prevention of the this syndrome is unusually important. All processes that affect tendon thickening, swelling in the area of the carpal tunnel or its narrowing can lead to increased pressure on the nerve.
Of course, certain systemic diseases (e.g. diabetes, rheumatoid arthritis, endocrine diseases, etc.), tumors, accumulation of fluid in the body as a result of pregnancy or menopause, the taking of certain drugs, etc. should be excluded.
The so-called post-traumatic carpal tunnel syndrome, a condition that arises from the fracture of a thumb bone in a typical site, and has the result, due to changed anatomical conditions, of premature compression of the central nervous system!
Carpal tunnel syndrome occurs more frequently in women. It can occur on both hands, but the symptoms are usually more pronounced in the dominant hand. In carpal tunnel syndrome, its development usually begins as a temporary tingling in the fingers during the night or in the morning, which later becomes present throughout the day. Numbness of the first three fingers of the fist, swelling of the fingers (especially the thumb) and the fist, reduced mobility, and later pain and muscular weakness, are the symptoms of this channelic syndrome.
If the condition progresses, the patients have things falling out of their hands because of muscular weakness, fastening of buttons or a bra becomes difficult and the pain is at that point constant.
