An increase of cumulative trauma disorders including carpal tunnel syndrome has been seen in the last 10 years. Common causes of carpal tunnel syndrome include high-risk occupations, pregnancy, diabetes, and trauma. Measures used to diagnose carpal tunnel syndrome are physical examinations, electromyography, computerized tomography, and vibrometers. Carpal tunnel syndrome can be treated through conservative methods, such as splinting and steroid injection, or through surgical procedures. Ergonomic principles can also help to minimize exacerbation of symptoms and possibly prevent carpal tunnel syndrome. A case report is used to describe the long-term effects of trauma-induced carpal tunnel syndrome and to present various therapeutic interventions, including ergonomics, which may be useful in returning clients to work.
