In today's society, incidents of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, or repetitive motion injury, are becoming more and more prevalent. While technology has certainly been an economic blessing, it has not come without a price. The more human beings must interact with machines, the more pervasive a problem Carpal Tunnel Syndrome becomes.
From those who work with computers on a daily basis to assembly line workers, repetitive motion injury cases are increasing at an alarming rate. However, symptoms of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome are not limited only to the work place. Pregnancy has been known to bring on such symptoms. Sleeping in certain positions also plays a part. Stress in all its forms also plays a major role. Eating habits, tobacco and alcohol consumption, repetitive motion related to sports, the playing of musical instruments and many other factors all contribute to the break down of tissues in the body that lead to Carpal Tunnel Syndrome.
A study by the Kemper National Insurance Companies showed that work-place injuries that go unreported for 30 days or more are more than 50 percent more costly than those reported within the first 10 days of the occurrence. Why the boost in expense? Kemper reasons that early reporting leads to early treatment!
Make no mistake. If you are experiencing the symptoms associated with Carpal Tunnel Syndrome and continue to repeat the same actions that created this condition over an extended period of time, the consequences are severe. Once Carpal Tunnel Syndrome has progressed beyond a certain point, it may require surgery to correct the problem. Worse still, Carpal Tunnel Syndrome can, in fact, progress to the point where even surgery cannot fix the problem, leaving that part of your body affected by this condition crippled beyond any hope of repair.
If caught in time, Carpal Tunnel Syndrome is entirely reversible by means of simple daily exercise. We have developed a CD program that not only educates you with regard to the Carpal Tunnel Syndrome condition, but we also provide you with a diverse series of physical therapy exercises that you can perform in the car, the shower, while on the telephone or just about anywhere!
In addition, we have assembled a comprehensive array of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome self-help tools, from "ergonomically correct" computer accessories to magnetic therapy devices, cervical pillows, a variety of self massagers and much more!
