If you’re like millions of workers all across the country, a major part of your job is typing. Every day, every moment – you are typing: emails, social media, notes, documents, and so much more. You type on your computer at work, as well as other devices they may give you at work like the phone or any other mobile device. You type quickly and accurately, always doing a good job. However, over time, you start to feel pain in your hands and/or wrist. Suddenly, you can’t do your job as well anymore. Maybe you can’t do it all. This could mean that you’ve suffered from carpal tunnel injuries.
Attorneys for Carpal Tunnel Injuries
Carpal tunnel injuries are a result of carpal tunnel syndrome. That just means that you have a tingling, numbness or pain in your arms and hands. How it works is, the median nerve (one of the more important nerves in your hand) gets compressed. As you might imagine, that compression happens all the time when you’re typing and it just becomes an injury after a while. Technically, you get these injuries from making the same wrist or hand motions over and over again – which is of course, almost everything that administrative workers (and so many others) do at their jobs every day.
Lawyers for Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
When you have carpal tunnel injuries, or think that you have them, you have to get help as quickly as possible. How it works is that you keep doing the same motions over and over again (typing and the like) which aggravates your wrist tendons. So, they swell. Then, as they get bigger, that puts more pressure on the median nerve. Then, it hurts more and more. That’s why we recommend getting medical attention as quickly as possible – so that your median nerve is exposed to that pressure for as short a period of time as possible. If it isn’t, then it can lead to significant and possibly debilitating nerve damage. These injuries could even lead to surgery.
