    Re: Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

    I forgot about this, but read a long time ago that wrist exercises will help, moving the wrist from left to right sideways, flexing the fingers moving the wrist up and down.......I noticed my wrist starting to hurt some...so I adjusted the arm on my chair so that my arm was straight with my wrist when using the mouse on the computer...it seemed to help a lot.

      Re: Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

      Hey, guys, let's not get too buggy on docs, now. I've had both my knee and shoulder done over and both came out really well. Medicine is an inexact science at best, and like other professions there are some diagnosticians and practitioners that are better than others. And there are some real duds.

      But I sure don't want the entire police profession judged on a few misfits that make the front page of the evening news, nor all the clergy condemned for the few that twist their vows. I've also had some very good chiropractors and one that wanted to set me up on a "colon cleansing" regiment. My regular chiro-doc retired (****!) and he fixed me up plenty of times, and told me several times that if I could tough it out for a few days it would pretty well take care of itself......ya know what? I did and it did.

      There are far more concientious and talented physicians and surgeons around than there are quacks, but it does pay to check out your doc before having him or her cut on you. By the way both my surgeons (shoulder and knee) gave me several options prior to surgery and did NOT recommend surgery as the answer, but went over x-rays and MRI's with me very thoroughly to explore the options. When the decision was made, it was mine, not some doc trying to push off some surgical procedure. That's how it should work!

      OK, off my soap box (for now)!

        The doctor on my wife's knee was right on about her knee also but the three specialist before, well, they did not know what was wrong and one said it was in her mind. That will be $150 please. So you are right AL, there are some good ones but still they are far in between. They are "practiceing medicine".
        One even told my wife that he was 95% sure what was wrong, Guess his percentage went down and who in the heck wants a 95 percenter working on you. What if you are the 5 percenter?
        Nope, no faith in doctors.

            I thought it might be time to move this , seems more directed to off topic now.

            Guys so you know the lady I was speaking about had no real choice of doctors as it was a work comp case. What was really amazing is the fact that had it not been I really would wonder if it would have went so far. It contintues to this day , 10 years and running .

              Have you actually been diagnosed with carpal tunnel syndrome? It could actually be something else, coming from the elbow or shoulder. It is often caused by bone spurs pressing on a nerve not necessarily carpal tunnel syndrome.

              You should have a neurologist do an emg to determine if in fact it is carpal tunnel. It could be arthritis in which case there are other options.
