I have been reading Dr. Davis' Back & Wrist Pain Blog and I have been diagnosed with C6 C7 herniated disc and Carpal Tunnel Syndrome which occurred through a work injury in Victoria Australia and the insurance company have declined my claim for carpal tunnel syndrome and they say that it is not related to my work injury. I did Home Care/ Personal Care/ Respite Care with the Aged and Disabled so lots of housework, vacuuming, washing floors hanging washing etc. The Insurance Company accepted my claim for my neck injury. The question I am trying to find the answer to is:
Is there any medical proof that my disc injury has caused carpal tunnel syndrome or is part of my neck disc injury? If there is could you please direct me to the website or give my any information as to where I could find this information. Any help would be very much appreciated as I am considering taking this matter further if possible. Thank you.
