What Is Carpal Tunnel Syndrome?

Carpal tunnel syndrome is the result of swelling in the wrist putting pressure on the median nerve, which is responsible for feeling/sensation in certain parts of the hand. Carpal tunnel syndrome is commonly brought about by repetitive stress injuries, but is also caused by arthritis and other illnesses or injuries that affect the wrist joint.

Is Carpal Tunnel Syndrome A Disability?

Even though there is not a specific disability listing for carpal tunnel syndrome, if its cumulative effects can be shown to match a corresponding illness or musculoskeletal disease that does have a listing, you can receive disability benefits. Some of the common symptoms of carpal tunnel syndrome that can be used to describe fit your condition within an allowed disability listing (such as diabetes and arthritis) include:

  • Inability or difficulty grasping or carrying objects
  • Tingling or numbness of the thumb, index finger or middle finger
  • Numbness or tingling of the palm
  • General weakness of the hand
  • Difficulty moving fingers or making
  • Pain in the hand, wrist and forearm

Making your disability fit within an accepted listing is an extremely nuanced process, and you should work closely with an attorney at our firm when filling out your application for disability benefits. Our experience in disability law and familiarity with the Social Security Administration allows us to give your application a strong chance of success from the outset.

If your application for disability benefits tied to carpal tunnel syndrome has been rejected, we can still help. Our knowledgeable disability attorneys can use their proven trial strategies to fight for your interests and help you obtain the benefits you need to pay for medical costs, bills and other expenses.
