I have written many times here about Carpal Tunnel Syndrome (CTS). Most recently about the 5 main symptoms of CTS.
The carpal tunnel is a narrow space between the wrist bone and the fibrous tissue that supports the wrist joint. Threading through this tight space is the median nerve, which can easily become inflamed with repetitive stress to the area.
With all of the information about CTS – its causes, what the symptoms are, what exercises can help eliminate discomfort, and even what ergonomic measures you can take at work and at home to prevent it, you may wonder just how it is diagnosed.
To get an idea of diagnosis techniques for CTS, take a look at this video clip where a practitioner explains and demonstrates a physical examination using sensory tests.
Prevent CTS or reduce the discomfort of CTS by eliminating stress to the hands and fingers whenever possible. One easy way of doing this is to use an ergonomic pen when writing.
Handwriting with the UGLee Pen is the best way t keep fingers , hands and wrists in a comfortable and relaxed position during this activity.
