1. CARPAL TUNNEL SYNDROME
Sometimes, the median nerve in the upper limb, gets compressed or irritated as it passes through a tunnel in the wrist, made up of a fibrous band, and bones of the wrist. This tunnel is called the carpal tunnel. This leads to tingling and numbness of the thumb, index, and the middle fingers — a condition known as ‘carpal tunnel syndrome’.
Pregnancy, obesity, trauma and repetitive stress injuries can also cause carpal tunnel symptoms.
2. POSTURAL SYMPTOMS
Any prolonged position in the daily routine, leads to sustained loading and stresses on the various structures of the body. Interrupting such prolonged positions with frequent breaks, modifying the environment to suit your body structure, and being aware about the faulty and right postures, plays a vital role in preventing aches and pains. Sometimes all these stresses accumulate over a period of time and lead to more chronic conditions and need to be assessed and treated accordingly.
