The hands and the wrist are two of the most complex, yet critical parts of our bodies. Through the course of our daily activities, we put our hands through a gauntlet of activity. Without our hands and wrists the use of our hands would be vastly limited.
Carpal Tunnel Syndrome is one of the most common hand and wrist ailments today, yet it can easily be avoided by knowing what to look for and the actions you can take to avoid it. This course will cover the following learning objectives:
WHAT IS CARPAL TUNNEL SYNDROME
Carpal Tunnel Syndrome results from excessive strain and pressure on the median of the wrist. Even simple, repetitive tasks can cause this strain. Essentially, the nerves in the wrist get pinched which makes it harder for the signal being sent by the brain to get through.
While the exact causes of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome are still being researched, it has been proven that repetitive tasks, even simple ones, can cause strain, which in turn causes Carpal Tunnel Syndrome.
PREVENTION AND RECOVERY
Most of the injuries involving Carpal Tunnel Syndrome can easily be detected and avoided. Being aware of your body, your posture, and where and when you feel strain can go a long way to avoiding injury.
