Do You Have Carpal Tunnel Syndrome?
Do you have Carpal Tunnel Syndrome? This pain pattern can cause loss of
grip strength in your hand or electrical pain in your wrist & hand.
This repetitive stress injury is often caused from inflammation of the
median nerve under the carpal tunnel (flexor retinaculum ligaments of
the wrist). But did you know that the origin of this pain could be from
an impingement pattern in your neck and chest called Thoracic Outlet Syndrome.

Causes of Carpal Tunnel or Wrist Pain
So why is your median nerve inflamed? Often the cause is from muscular
tension in the flexors and extensors of your wrist muscles. But why
are these muscles so tight? Are there imbalances in the neural pathway
that feed your arm…like in your neck, chest or upper arm? Or maybe there
is scar tissue surrounding the nerve or around your wrist causing more
rubbing and friction than necessary? Possibly you hold too much
tension in your wrist when you use it at your job or in your sport? Any
combination of these examples can cause your pain.
