Housecall for Health: Computer Caused Carpal Tunnel
An agency that’s part of the U.S. Department of Health is issuing a warning about a growing number of cases involving a serious progressive condition. And it’s possible that surfing the web plays a big role in the increase in cases.
FOX’s Colleen Cappon has details in today’s “Housecall for Health”:
With a growing number of people working on computers during the day, cases of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome are also on the rise. According to the National Institutes of Health, the first symptoms include burning, tingling and numbness in the hand. This is when immediate medical intervention is necessary to prevent Carpal Tunnel from getting worse.
When it comes to pinched nerves in the wrist, prevention is key. Untreated cases can lead to the deterioration of hand muscles.
