CARPAL TUNNEL SYNDROME: This and arm numbness and pain have a common origin, the neck. Both the nerves exiting the neck vertebrae and nerve compression above the collar bone are the two most common sites of nerve dysfunction causing altered wrist function. Add repetitive stress to this and then carpal tunnel, tennis elbow and can ensue. Treatment involves resetting the nerves and re-aligning the wrist bones or elbow joints. Relief is rapid. Nerve dysfunction precedes these conditions in 92% of cases as determined by a study of workers in Colorado.
