Truth About Carpal Tunnel Syndrome : Finding Answers, Getting Well
Carpal tunnel syndrome, and related repetitive strain injuries (RSIs), are on the rise due to the more frequent, even constant, use of technological devices such as keyboards, smart phones, ipods, tablets, and related items. But the medical and legal establishments disagree on the symptoms, the causes, the treatments, and even the existence of such injuries, while workers lose wages, livelihoods, even their sense of self-worth. This book explores the reality of carpal tunnel syndrome, the symptoms, the current treatments, and the impacts of carpal tunnel syndrome and other RSIs on people of all ages. Through her own story and through stories from other sufferers, medical and legal professionals, and current research, Jill Gambaro clearly articulates the world of RSIs and provides hope and help for sufferers and their loved ones.
