Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

Carpel tunnel syndrome (CTS) happens when the median nerve, which runs from the forearm through the wrist and into the palm of the hand, is pressed or squeezed at the wrist. There is an actual “carpal tunnel.” It is a narrow passageway containing ligaments and bones at the base of the hand where the median nerve and the tendons that bend the fingers are located.

This is about a Social Security Disability claim.

For a professional who relies on manual dexterity, like a surgeon, dentist, or someone who spends their days typing on a keyboard, CTS can be a career-ending condition. If you are suffering from CTS, a visit to the orthopedist will confirm the diagnosis, usually through x-rays or MRI studies. Treatment can include cortisone shots, wearing a splint or brace, over the counter drugs, prescription drugs or when nothing else works, surgery.
