It is especially common in people who use computers in business life, but it is also very common in occupational groups that work with wrist strength. It is more common in people with diabetes and thyroid disorders, but it can be seen in all age groups.
It is characterized by pain and numbness in the wrist. Numbness at night indicates that the disease is very advanced. In the absence of appropriate treatment at the appropriate time, nerve damage and muscle wasting indicate that the disease has reached its final stages.
The diagnosis can be made by physical examination. EMG should be performed to determine the amount of nerve compression.
While wristband treatment can be applied in the early stages, surgery is required in advanced patients.
