Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

Carpal Tunnel Syndrome (CTS) is the most common peripheral nerve compression disorder. The prevalence of CTS in our computer-driven society has become a cause for concern and represents a substantial cost in productivity loss and disability. A diagnosis of CTS often evokes fear because many people have a belief that it most likely requires surgery. This presentation increases awareness and knowledge of this common workplace condition and includes the following points of discussion:

  1. Nature of CTS – What occurs with CTS? How does it happen?
  2. Ergonomics relative to CTS – Don’t ‘position’ yourself for Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
  3. Diagnosing Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
  4. Integrative approaches for management of CTS (surgery, steroid injections, orthoses, physical therapy, exercises, manipulation/mobilization and nutritional).
