Carpal Tunnel Syndrome (CTS) has seen a dramatic increase in occurrences as more time is spent striking keys on the computer. Carpal tunnel is caused by compression of the median nerve in the wrist that results in pain, numbness, and tingling in the fingers.

This pain could be a symptom of thumb injury or overuse, basil joint arthritis, or carpal tunnel syndrome. Additionally, pain at the base of your thumb can be caused by injuries to.

A repetitive strain injury (RSI) is an injury to part of the musculoskeletal or nervous system caused by repetitive use, vibrations, compression or long periods in a fixed position. Other common names include repetitive stress disorders, cumulative trauma disorders (CTDs), and overuse syndrome. Causes of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome.

Aside from overuse of the wrists and hands, other factors can also influence whether you may develop the condition of carpal tunnel syndrome, such as: Gender: Women are more likely to be affected by carpal tunnel syndrome than men, likely because they have smaller carpal tunnels.

Carpal Tunnel Syndrome. by Dr. Timothy Jameson. Doctor of Chiropractic. Castro Valley, CA. The following is an excerpt from Dr. Jameson's book Repetitive Strain Injuries: The Complete Guide to Alternative Treatments and Prevention.

(Keats Publishing, ). ©Dr. Timothy Jameson. Notice how the median nerve, flexor tendons, along with an artery and vein traverse through the small tunnel. It is caused by swelling and pressure on the median nerve passing through the wrist.

Other common problems are rotator cuff injury, from overuse of the shoulder; tennis elbow, inflammation of a tendon in the elbow from overuse of the forearm; and back injuries from repeated heavy lifting.

entrapment of the median nerve in the carpal tunnel, which is formed by the flexor retinaculum and the carpal bones; this syndrome may be associated with repetitive occupational trauma, wrist injuries, amyloid neuropathies, rheumatoid arthritis, acromegaly, pregnancy, and other conditions; symptoms include burning pain and paresthesias.

Drumming-related injuries are very common (lifetime history was 68%). The upper limb (especially the wrist) and the lower back are the most commonly affected body parts.

The two most frequently reported drumming-related injury diagnoses are tendinitis and carpal tunnel syndrome. Carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS) is prevalent in workers who utilize hand-held vibration tools, engage in tasks involving repetitive wrist movements, and suffer from wrist overuse.
