Carpels In The Wrong Place?

Carpel Tunnel Syndrome (CTS) occurs when the small opening at the base of the wrist (the space between the wrist bones and the forearm bones), becomes inflammed or intruded upon by misalignment. CTS usually affects people who use their hands a lot with repetitive motion. Computer workers, musicians, laborers, casino dealers and writers are all occupations that have over-wrist use in common. CTS symptoms are usually numbness, pain and weakness of the hand or wrist. In some cases, carpel tunnel syndrome may be caused by a vitamin B-6 deficiency. Sucessful correction of CTS often comes from chiropractic care, acupuncture and or osteopathic care. Surgery should almost always be avoided as the CTS surgery has a very high failure rate.

Thought for the Week: " The most damaging lie is that freedom of symptoms means health." ----- Reggie Gold, D.C.
