Carpal Tunnel Syndrome Disabilities
Retain Our Long-Term Disability Attorneys – (800) 969-0488
One of the most common yet frequently overlooked medical conditions that can lead to disability is carpal tunnel syndrome. Millions of Americans each year will be diagnosed with carpal tunnel – also called median nerve compression – to some degree, yet few will consider the short-term or long-term disability benefits they may become eligible to receive due to the condition. Caused by a compression of nerves in the hand due to aggravated ligaments or tendons, carpal tunnel can cause chronic pain and debilitation of a person’s entire hand. Small motions like typing, using a computer mouse, or holding a pen can become incredibly difficult as carpal tunnel symptoms progress.
In today’s modern age, more and more jobs are moving towards consistent computer usage or tasks that require fine hand articulation. As such, people with carpal tunnel can find it difficult to hold gainful employment, and may need long-term disability insurance coverage to help make ends meet.

Complications & Health Issues Associated with Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
Despite the commonality of carpal tunnel syndrome, it still remains difficult to treat effectively. Many solutions are only temporary, such as applying an ice pad to the wrist for several hours a day. Longer-lasting treatments usually involve steroids or surgery, two options that not every patient is comfortable with using. Neither guarantees a total recovery, either.
Trying to complete expected job duties with carpal tunnel will be difficult due to its persistent symptoms. Mild cases of carpal tunnel can cause soreness in the hand, moderate cases can cause pain and loss of manual dexterity, and a severe case can cause total numbness of the hand that leads to pseudo-paralysis of the affected hand.
Occupations commonly associated with the development of carpal tunnel include:
- Administrative assistants
- Bank tellers
- Civil engineers
- Financial managers
- Human resources workers
- Office managers and workers
The common thread among occupations most bothered by carpal tunnel syndrome is the routine use of computers and keyboards. However, intricate manual dexterity tasks are not the only way to develop carpal tunnel. Many workers who use their hands in different capacities can suffer tendon inflammation that eventually pinches the nerves in their hands. For example, a construction worker who regularly uses powerful handheld tools is also at risk of carpal tunnel.
