The Medi profession is absolutely clueless re "Carpal Tunnel" they continue to do unnecessary surgeries that don't make a difference.
That's because the cause of the problem is elsewhere.
I usually fix this in minutes with my clients.
Here is a clue to any docs or surgeons reading this... Follow the nerve complex up HIGHER. Check their posture and rattle your tiny brains to see if you can figure out where the nerves might be impinged higher up. Doh!
Answer is usually brachial plexus bundle under Pec Minor [it being one of the biggest compensators in the body] and Scalenes [nerves pass between Anterior and Medial Scalenes]
Neck restriction is almost certainly a given. Intertransversarii can lock the facets restricting movement and setting up a chain of compensation. Easy to release. But again you need to figure out why they are doing it [often a core imbalance - by core I mean muscles that attach to the spine, not the muscles your gym instructor or personal trainer thinks is the core!]
Very simple to improve things for clients.
Not so simple figuring out WHY you have ended up like this....that's what I specialise in. Drop me a line if you want to book in an appointment. Worth travelling for.
