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 & chest called thoracic outlet syndrome.

Causes of Carpal Tunnel or Wrist Pain
So why is your median nerve inflammed? Often the cause is from muscular tension in the flexors & 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 & 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.[clearboth]
