Computer Related Repetitive Strain Injury
"We pray with our hands and often communicate with them. We use them to eat, work, and make love. We employ them as marvelously sophisticated instruments of flexibility and strength, and when they are damaged, we anguish."
- Keith L. Moore, Clinically Oriented Anatomy As more and more work, education and recreation involves computers, everyone needs to be aware of the hazard of Repetitive Strain Injury to the hands and arms resulting from the use of computer keyboards and mice. This can be a serious and very painful condition that is far easier to prevent than to cure once contracted, and can occur even in young physically fit individuals. It is not uncommon for people to have to leave computer-dependent careers as a result, or even to be disabled and unable to perform tasks such as driving or dressing themselves. I've faced this problem myself since March of 1994, and many friends are also affected to varying degrees. I am not a health care professional, but I hope on this page to provide a very brief introduction to RSI for the benefit of students who may not be aware of the potential for a life-altering injury. It includes book references and links to Internet resources that have been helpful in educating me about this. Don't hesitate to get in touch by e-mail, but because I have to limit my own computer use, please take the time to consult the entire page and the listed materials at length first.

Combining Focusing with the Alexander Technique to Overcome Carpal Tunnel Syndrome by Kevin McEvenue This is the remarkable story of Paul, a man suddenly confronted with a life crisis similar to a crisis we may have all faced. On this particular day he decided to do something different than what would be considered normal. He put his worries aside, sat down and started to pay attention to himself. He paid particular attention to his wrists with a Wholebody Focusing attitude. Paul listened inwardly to the physical sensations in his wrists and allowed himself to feel that pain just as it was without the usual tendency to try to fix or judge or push away. He just listened to the pain, felt the pain and made room for the pain. And then there came a shift in the pain itself. If it could be put into words, it felt like there was a shift from a pain that felt stuck to a pain that felt almost pleasurable although still painful. He continued to just listen and pay attention to what was there. In that moment he sensed a whole relationship change not only with typing at the computer, but also with people at work and the work itself. The chronic pain was gone. It was actually pleasurable to sit at the computer. It felt like all of him was doing the typing not just his fingers. It was like a dance coming from the whole of him engaged in making his fingers push down on the keys. This felt surprising and gratifying at the same time.

The carpal tunnel is a very crowded, narrow passageway on the inside of your wrist, filled with nerves tendons and blood vessels. When you engage in quick, repetitive actions with your hands and wrists hour after hour, day after day, you can irritate and traumatize that narrow area. Inflammation and swelling might result, producing tingling, numbness, and pain in the hand. When that happens, you have carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS). Imagine a water hose with a kink in it. Even when you turn the water on full force, the flow coming out of the nozzle will not be full strength. This resembles what happens with CTS. When the median nerve in the carpal tunnel is squeezed, the result can be pain, numbness, some weakness, and eventually the inability to properly use the hand. The index finger, the middle finger, and thumb are most severely affected. If you've ever fallen asleep on your arm or hand, the sensation of 'pins and needles' that you experience upon waking is similar to what people with CTS experience. To test for CTS, doctors tap a patient's wrist area. If the patient feels a tingling in the fingertips, it could indicate CTS.

Welcome to’s class on Carpal Tunnel Syndrome. Today we will be discussing the anatomical occurrence of carpal tunnel syndrome in the wrists, what we can do to prevent it and treat it. Let’s begin. What is Carpal Tunnel Syndrome Carpal Tunnel Syndrome is a condition that occurs when too much pressure is placed on the median nerve as it passes through the carpal tunnel. The carpal tunnel is a small passageway through which the median nerve, as well as the tendons that operate the thumb and fingers must pass. The location of the carpal tunnel is right at the base of the palm and wrist and it creates a tight fit even in a healthy structure. Sometimes, through repetitive and improper use of the hand and wrist, the tendons can become inflamed. When the tendons swell within the tight carpal tunnel, there is no longer enough room for everything to fit comfortably and this places pressure on the median nerve. This pressure creates tingling and loss of feeling in the hand. It can also inhibit your ability to pinch you thumb to your fingers.

Patient Notes
Carpal tunnel syndrome
VOL 98 / NO 3 / SEPTEMBER 1995 / POSTGRADUATE MEDICINE The carpal tunnel runs under the ligament connecting the bones on either side of your wrist (figure 1). The nerve that controls hand muscles and tendons, which enable you to bend your fingers, passes through this tunnel. Carpal tunnel syndrome results when the tunnel becomes narrow and the nerve is squeezed against bone and ligament. What causes narrowing of the carpal tunnel?
Most often, wear and tear and swelling of the tendons from overuse. Carpal tunnel syndrome is common in people who have jobs or hobbies requiring repeated hand motions. Assembly workers, beauticians, data-entry operators, cooks, musicians, and racquet-sports enthusiasts are often affected. Fluid retention (which often accompanies pregnancy), arthritis, and a broken bone in the wrist are other causes. How can I identify carpal tunnel syndrome?
Tingling, burning, and numbness in the hand are usually the early symptoms. At first, they come and go. They occur most often early in the morning or during the night and may even wake you up. Eventually, the hand may become weak and clumsy, and constant pain may extend up your arm. What should I do if I have these symptoms?

Carpal tunnel syndrome
Carpal tunnel syndrome is a condition where pressure on a nerve (the Median Nerve), where it passes through the wrist into the hand, causes pain, pins and needles, weakness and numbness in the hand.
Carpal tunnel syndrome causes a number of symptoms:
  • Pain in the hand, which often wakes you in the night.
  • Numbness and or pins and needles in the hand, affecting the thumb, forefinger, middle finger and the half of the ring finger nearest to the thumb.
  • Weakness of some of the movements of the thumb. Those that are worst affected may also have wasting of the muscles at the base of the thumb.
  • Sometimes people feel the pain up into the lower end of their forearm.
The symptoms can trouble you at any time, but are most often worse at night. People often wake with the pain and find themselves shaking their hands to ease the symptoms.
The wrist is bounded on three sides by bones. The fourth side, (the same side as the palm) has a thin covering across it, under which the structures lie that pass into the hand. The wrist bones are called the carpal bones, and this space is called the carpal tunnel. Space in the carpal tunnel is limited. If anything leads to some of the space being taken up, this leads to pressure building up. The main contents of the carpal tunnel are the tendons which cause the hand to flex, but the structure in the wrist that is most sensitive to pressure is the nerve which passes into the hand (the median nerve).

Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
What is Carpal Tunnel Syndrome Carpal tunnel syndrome begins with numbness and tingling in the hand and may involve aching in the hand, forearm or shoulder. It is a very common condition that is caused by a pinched nerve in the palm of the hand. The symptoms may occur intermittently during the daytime and sometimes occur at night and awaken one from sleep. It is not uncommon for the sufferer to think that the hands have "poor circulation" and shake the hands in an attempt to "restore circulation" What causes CTS? Repetitive motions typically cause carpal tunnel syndrome. Any activity that involves grasping, squeezing or clipping motions such as using a computer, using tools, knitting or playing the piano. Can I wait until it gets worse? Maybe it sill just go away. Doing nothing can possibly lead to irreversible damage. If you have CTS, the nerve that provides sensation to the hand and function to the thumb is being "pinched." After remaining in the pinched stage for a period of time, permanent injury to the nerve will result. There is no treatment that can fully restore hand function and sensation once permanent damage is sustained. Is surgery always necessary?

Anatomy of The Median Nerve
The median nerve runs into the hand to supply sensation to the thumb, index finger, long finger, and half of the ring finger. The nerve also supplies a branch to the muscles of the thumb, the thenar muscles. One of the first symptoms of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome is numbness in the distribution of the median Nerve. This is quickly followed by pain in the same distribution. The pain may also radiate up the arm to the shoulder, and, sometimes the neck. If the condition is allowed to progress, weakness of the thenar muscles can occur. This results in an inability to bring the thumb into opposition with the other fingers and hinders one's grasp. Looking at a cross section of the wrist allows one to visualize the anatomy of the Carpal Tunnel. The Carpal Tunnel is an opening into the hand that is made up of the bones of the wrist on the bottom and the Transverse Carpal Ligament on the top. Through this opening, the Median Nerve and the Flexor Tendons run into the hand. The Median Nerve lies just under the Transverse Carpal Ligament.

Also called biotechnology, human engineering or human factor engineering, office ergonomics is the applied science of equipment design for the office that is intended to maximize productivity by reducing operator fatigue and discomfort. Anyone who sits at a computer for long periods of time must take a pro-active approach with office ergonomics to prevent the physical problems they could face as a result. More than 28 million Americans use computers each day according to officials at the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). When office ergonomics is not applied many risk incurring carpal tunnel syndrome, tendonitis, tenosynovitis, deQuervain’s syndrome, tennis elbow, thoracic outlet syndrome and others, all commonly classed under the general heading of Repetitive Strain Injuries and Cumulative Trauma Disorders. Carpal Tunnel Syndrome is the most common and costly cumulative trauma disorder. Back injuries are second With workplace ergonomics, employers can prevent musculoskeletal disorder hazards by properly designing the job or work station and selecting the appropriate tools or equipment for that job to create an ergonomic office.

Office Ergonomics Training This site contains office ergonomics information aimed at ergonomics committee members as well as office workers in general. The information here is based on the research literature whenever possible; it may not be consistent with some of the conventional wisdom that has persisted for decades, such as "sit up straight" or "have the monitor at eye level" or "the keyboard should be at elbow height." Office ergonomics deserves to be treated separately from general (industrial) ergonomics. The principles are the same, but there are so many subtle differences and different products that it's best to specialize. This site collects and publishes some "handouts" that have been used widely in training courses for office workers and ergonomists and health care professionals who work with office workers. The handouts have received good reviews with respect to their clarity, objectivity, and scientific basis. Some have been published in slightly different form in book chapters and manuals. We are pleased to share them with you. This site was developed by Chris Grant, PhD, now retired from ergonomics. Her Michigan-based ergonomics practice, F-One Ergonomics, was limited to office-related issues. Dr. Grant and other cited authors on the site are Certified Professional Ergonomists and Certified Industrial Ergonomists who have consulted in this field for years and have been involved in the development of national and international ergonomics standards. Dr. Grant has generously transferred the site to Dennis Ankrum, who will strive to maintain the standard of excellence she has set.

carpal tunnel syndrome is due to compression of the median nerve within a tunnel comprising a U shaped collection of bones with a tight ligament at the top.
Carpal tunnel syndrome is due to compression of the median nerve within a tunnel comprising a "U" shaped collection of bones with a tight ligament at the top. The most common cause is tenosynovitis . The nerve can gradually wither if the condition is not treated. This causes permanent loss of sensation and wasting of thumb muscles, which cannot be completely relieved by surgery. There are a number of ways of treating the condition including activity modification, splinting, anti-inflammatory drugs, steroid injections and surgery. Surgery is recommended if you have had the problem for a long time, your symptoms are severe, non-surgical treatments have failed or if the doctor detects wasting of muscles or loss of sensation in the hand. Surgery involves cutting the ligament over the tunnel to relieve the pressure on the nerve. This can be achieved in two ways.
Open technique A cut is made in the palm and the carpal ligament is reached by cutting through the underlying tissues and muscle. The ligament then is cut under direct vision. Operative series Endoscopic technique The carpal ligament to be reached from a small cut at the wrist. The ligament is seen using a small telescope, which provides a magnified image on a television screen that the surgeon watches whilst performing the surgery. Technical difficulties can occur necessitating conversion to the open technique (6%).

Diagnosis, carpal tunnel syndrome Causes, carpal tunnel syndrome is mainly due to swelling and inflammation of the tendons within the canal.

CARPAL TUNNEL SYNDROME For more Sports Medicine and Orthopedic Information Check out Definition Carpal tunnel syndrome is a compression disorder of the median nerve at the wrist that results in pain, numbness and weakness of the hand. Details The median nerve is one of the main nerves of the wrist and hand. It travels into the hand via a narrow canal known as the carpal tunnel. This tunnel contains not only the median nerve but also many of the tendons that control bending of the fingers (the flexor tendons). Causes Carpal tunnel syndrome is mainly due to swelling and inflammation of the tendons within the canal. This inflammation puts pressure on the nerve and results in the symptoms of pain, numbness and weakness. Repetitive activities such as excessive computer use can cause the inflammation and therefore lead to carpal tunnel syndrome. The disorders is also associated with diabetes, pregnancy and trauma. Diagnosis Carpal tunnel syndrome is characterized by numbness and tingling in the thumb, index finger and long finger. It is usually worse at night. Weakness of the hand, such as difficulty opening a jar or car door, may also be present. Pushing on the wrist or hyperflexing the wrist may reproduce the symptoms. The diagnosis of carpal tunnel syndrome is confirmed by a electrical conduction study of the median nerve. Treatment Nonoperative: Most cases of carpal tunnel syndrome can be treated with rest from the aggravating activity, anti-inflammatory medication, and splinting. A cortisone injection may also be considered. Improving a person's work conditions, such as adjusting a keyboard or height of a chair, are other important components of nonoperative treatment.

What is carpal tunnel syndrome?
Carpal tunnel syndrome is a painful disorder of the wrist and hand. The carpal tunnel is a narrow tunnel formed by the bones and other tissues of your wrist. This tunnel protects your median nerve. The median nerve gives you feeling in your thumb, and index, middle and ring fingers. But when other tissues in the carpal tunnel, such as ligaments and tendons, get swollen or inflamed, they press against the median nerve. That pressure can make part of your hand hurt or feel numb. Return to top
What leads to carpal tunnel syndrome?
Doing the same hand movements over and over can lead to carpal tunnel syndrome. It's most common in people whose jobs require pinching or gripping with the wrist held bent. People at risk include people who use computers, carpenters, grocery checkers, assembly-line workers, meat packers, violinists and mechanics. Hobbies such as gardening, needlework, golfing and canoeing can sometimes bring on the symptoms. Carpal tunnel syndrome is linked to other things too. It may be caused by an injury to the wrist, such as a fracture. Or it may be caused by a disease such as diabetes, rheumatoid arthritis or thyroid disease. Carpal tunnel syndrome is common during the last few months of pregnancy.
