|Carpal Tunnel Syndrome or Repetitive Stress?|
|Relative rest will give overused muscles and tendons a chance to heal. What's next is to pay attention to your posture and do exercises designed to strengthen your shoulder
girdle, forearm, and wrist.
To restore good posture, let your shoulder girdles rest on your rib cage. Your shoulders tend to ride upward during the course of a workday. Gently remind yourself to let go
of these tight neck and upper back muscles, allowing the shoulders to assume a neutral position and rest on the upper rib cage.
Shoulder shrugs are a useful isometric exercise that will help relieve painful trigger points. Sitting comfortably, lift both shoulders as high as they can go. Not forcing
anything, just lifting. Hold at the highest position for a moment, then relax, gently returning the shoulders to a neutral position. Repeat three times.
There is a feeling of hoplessness after a car accident like mine. I was sitting at home just taking medication waiting to get better. I felt depressed and useless. The more I waited the worse I felt. It seemed like my doctors were beginning to not believe that I was still hurting and I felt limited. The first thing Dr. Klinger wanted me to do was to walk and become active again. With adjustments I was able to move better with less pain and heal well. I can't thank you and your office enough for all the help I got and all the benefit I received. I hope nobody has to go through this but if it happens go see Dr. K.
