Carpal Tunnel isn't Just for Typists
Carpal Tunnel can start out as mild pain, manageable by breaks or anti-inflammatories. It's caused by a pinched nerve in the wrist. That nerve is important, controlling both movement and sensation of the wrist and hand. If left untreated, this mild pain can soon lead to burning, tingling, numbness, even itching in your wrist, palm and fingers. There are several ways one can develop carpal tunnel syndrome, as well as treat it. Treatment can be difficult simply because hands play such an integral role in everyday activity. We see this a lot with manual labor like assembly line workers, construction workers who holds tools all day, anyone who uses repeated motions each day. With some adjusted habits and ergonomic workspace, you could be back on your way to healthy hands. For more information, tune in to Dominic Turner DPT as he explains what Carpal Tunnel is.
