What is Tietze Syndrome?

Description of the disease

Tietze syndrome, also known as vibration disease, is a condition caused by repetitive or prolonged exposure to vibration on the hands and tool handles.


Tietze syndrome is classified as an occupational disease related to work activity.


  • Numbness and tingling in the hands
  • Decreased strength and coordination of movements
  • Pain and swelling of the fingers


The main cause of Tietze syndrome is the impact of high vibration tools on the hands for a prolonged period of time.


The diagnosis of Tietze syndrome is based on symptoms and medical examination of the patient, as well as assessment of work history.


Treatment of Tietze syndrome includes restriction of vibration exposure, physiotherapy, medication therapy, and in some cases, surgical intervention.


Prevention of Tietze syndrome includes the use of vibration protection measures, regular work breaks, and education on proper tool usage methods.


If Tietze syndrome is suspected, it is necessary to consult a neurologist or orthopedist.
