Hello.

While I was in massage therapy school, we learned that carpal tunnel, while it does affect the wrist and hands, actually stems from the cervicals (neck). One of my instructors had a seminar in which we followed the story of a pregnant woman who suffered from Carpal Tunnel Syndrome. Surgery was an option for her, but she decided against it. Anyhow, with frequent massaging of her neck, back and arms (right down to the fingertips), she noticed her symptoms were less aggravating to her and eventually her pain seemed to have gone away. Massage may be the answer to those who practice alternative medicine.

Thank you for your time,
Cherilyn

Cherilyn; You are absolutely right about this one, in fact a very good friend and author Julia Lacey wrote about this a number of years ago in her book "How to Survive your Computer Workstation" beginning in Chapter 1. The nerve endings which lead to the hand/wrist originate in the section of the neck or C-7 and C-8 root nerve home. The use of massage loosens the muscles around the disks allow for more blood flow and circulation. This carrys away any waste products-lactic acid if you will and helps reduce the inflammation.

Neat stuff.

Indeed what people call "Carpal Tunnel Syndrome" is typically misdiagnosed (or in a sense underdiagnosed
as part of the larger causative problems)...
