Chances are your checker at the grocery wears a big, clunky wrist splint. If her arm is entombed in a Velcro-fastened binding extending from fingers to elbow, she’s got carpal tunnel syndrome. Not exactly a velvet evening glove, but these wrist wraps are the fashion statement of the twenty-first century.
Carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS) is a common disabling condition. Most often associated with computer use, it can strike just about anyone who performs repetitive hand motions, and CTS afflicts women more often than men. Pregnancy, rheumatoid arthritis and diabetes are risk factors.
This crippler is caused by compression of the median nerve, a major nerve supplying the arm and hand. On its way through the wrist, the nerve navigates through a passage in the wrist called the carpal tunnel. This nerve generates sensation and movement in the hand.
We’ll use supplements, herbs, bodywork and salves to heal this painful condition.
