*Poor ergonomics (positioning of the chair, mouse, monitor, keyboard, or even poor mechanics on an assembly line).
*Decreased strength due to poor conditioning or injury.
*Insufficient relaxation/rest time away from the mechanism of injury.
*Excessive force that is required to perform an action.
All of these factors place unnecessary, repeated stresses upon all the soft tissues of the neck, shoulders, arms, wrists and hands!
Interestingly, what initially seems to be a restriction at the carpal tunnel, may actually be caused by a compression of the nerve in a location further up the arm.
We evaluate and treat CTS and pseudo-CTS, in which other peripheral nerves (beside the median nerve) become entrapped, simulating true CTS!
Treatment involves addressing adhesions via manual therapy at locations in the neck, shoulder arm and wrist. Exercises are provided for home use as soft tissue improves.
