Objective Carpal Tunnel Syndrome (CTS) is one of the most common compression neuropathy in the upper extremities. The aim of this study was to investigate the prevalence of CTS among male hairdressers in Bojnourd, Iran.
Methods This is a descriptive/analytical study with cross-sectional design conducted on 109 male hairdressers in bojnourd city. Among them, 38 had CTS symptoms such as finger numbness and underwent Phalen’s and Tinel’s tests, 22 of whom were positive. As a result, they were referred to a rehabilitation specialist for electrodiagnostic studies. Data analysis was carried out in SPSS v.22 software using descriptive statistics such as frequency and percentage and considering a significance level of 0.05.
Results Twenty-two of 109 hairdressers had clinical and electrodiagnostic criteria for CTS (20.8%). Of these, 45.45% had mild (n=10), 31.81% moderate (n=7) and 22.72% severe CTS (n=5).
Conclusion Hairdressing is one of the potential jobs for CTS. Hairdressers’ work situations need to be improved. It is also necessary to improve the awareness of hairdressers about biomechanics and the correct ways of doing work.
