Carpal tunnel syndrome is a painful condition that strikes workers whose duties involve repeating particular motions many times a day. Individuals who work on computers regularly or who perform other highly repetitive tasks can begin to experience symptoms such as:

  • Pain
  • Numbness
  • Tingling
  • Cold sensations
  • Swelling

How Do These Symptoms Impact Your Life?

These symptoms can make it difficult if not impossible for a worker to adequately perform his or her job. However, many doctors will not describe an incidence of carpal tunnel syndrome as disabling for a full year nor will they often support that it is totally disabling from any type of full-time work activity. Unfortunately, that is the definition of disability that the Social Security Administration (SSA) uses in determining if Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) or Supplemental Security Income (SSI) benefits are appropriate. This means that instances of carpal tunnel syndrome acting as the basis for a successful claim for disability benefits is rare.
