Here’s a 2 minutes and 53 The Link Between Occupation And Carpal Tunnel Syndrome seconds video. See full transcript below.
Carpal Tunnel Syndrome (CTS) is a painful condition characterised by pain, numbness, and weakness in certain parts of the hand due to the compression of the median nerve within the wrist. It is a prevalent concern which affects 2.7 per cent of the general population, with women more at-risk than men. It is most common in people who are aged 40 to 50 years old.
One of the biggest risk factors that contributes to the development of CTS is the overuse of hands and wrists. This has led experts to explore further whether CTS could be an actual occupational hazard. A significant number of studies have found that, indeed, CTS can be job-related and there are a number of workers who are more prone to suffering from this disruptive condition.
In dealing with Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, it is essential to be proactive. It is much easier to work on preventing this problem from happening. As such, it is important that you should not overuse your hands and let it rest by having small intervals between tasks. In addition, you should also observe proper ergonomics so that you can work on a position that does not put your hands and wrists in uncomfortable positions.
