Nationwide Carpal Tunnel Syndrome Disability Claims Attorneys

Nationwide Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

At Disability Insurance Law Group, our Florida and Nationwide attorneys know carpal tunnel syndrome is a common condition that causes numbness, tingling, and pain in the hand and forearm.

According to the American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons, the condition occurs when one of the major nerves in the hand — the median nerve — is squeezed or compressed as it travels through the wrist.

Unfortunately, what may start as discomfort in the hand, wrist, or forearm, can lead to permanent dysfunction of the hand, including loss of sensation in the fingers and weakness if untreated for too long.

In most patients, carpal tunnel syndrome gets worse over time. For this reason, it is important to diagnose and treat carpal tunnel syndrome promptly.

Our Nationwide carpal tunnel syndrome disability insurance attorneys assist individuals throughout the country with filing disability claims based on their condition, so they can seek the help they need without worrying about how they are going to pay their bills.

When is Carpal Tunnel Syndrome Considered an Impairment?

Carpal tunnel syndrome occurs when the tunnel becomes narrowed or when the tissue surrounding the flexor tendons swells.

This places pressure on the median nerve and reduces its blood supply, which can result in numbness, tingling, pain, and weakness in the hand.

Other symptoms of carpal tunnel syndrome may include:

  • Difficulty performing fine movements such as buttoning clothes.
  • Dropping things due to weakness, numbness, or a loss of awareness of where the hand is in space.
  • Occasional shock-like sensations that radiate to the thumb and index, middle, and ring fingers.
  • Pain or tingling that may travel up the forearm toward the shoulder.
  • Weakness and clumsiness in the hand.

If pressure on the median nerve continues, it can lead to nerve damage and worsening symptoms. To prevent permanent damage, surgery to take pressure off the median nerve may be recommended for some patients.

Our nationwide carpal tunnel syndrome disability attorneys assist policyholders with outlining the severity of their conditions and compiling the necessary medical records to support their disabilities, so they can focus on their treatment and care.

If you have been diagnosed with carpal tunnel syndrome that is keeping you from working and enjoying the quality of life you deserve, contact our nationwide disability insurance attorneys today to discuss your condition during a free consultation.

How is Carpal Tunnel Syndrome Diagnosed?

Most cases of carpal tunnel syndrome are caused by a combination of factors, which may include, but are not limited to:

  • Heredity.
  • Repetitive hand use.
  • Hand and wrist position for prolonged periods.
  • Other health conditions can lead to carpal tunnel syndrome, including diabetes, rheumatoid arthritis, and thyroid gland imbalances.

To diagnose individuals, physicians will examine the hand and wrist and perform several physical tests, as well as Electrophysiological tests on the nerves.

Other diagnostic tests may include:

  • Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scans.
  • Ultrasounds.
  • X-rays.

Once an individual has been diagnosed with carpal tunnel syndrome, common treatment may include:

  • Activity changes.
  • Bracing or splinting.
  • Nerve gliding exercises.
  • Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs).
  • Steroid injections.
  • Surgery.
