|Carpal Tunnel Syndrome or Repetitive Stress?|
|Relative rest will give overused muscles and tendons a chance to heal. What's next is to pay attention to your posture and do exercises designed to strengthen your shoulder
girdle, forearm, and wrist.
To restore good posture, let your shoulder girdles rest on your rib cage. Your shoulders tend to ride upward during the course of a workday. Gently remind yourself to let go
of these tight neck and upper back muscles, allowing the shoulders to assume a neutral position and rest on the upper rib cage.
Shoulder shrugs are a useful isometric exercise that will help relieve painful trigger points. Sitting comfortably, lift both shoulders as high as they can go. Not forcing
anything, just lifting. Hold at the highest position for a moment, then relax, gently returning the shoulders to a neutral position. Repeat three times.

I had an ache in my lower back that became worse after lifting something heavy. This caused difficulty concentrating at work and even problems sleeping. I tried medicine and massage with little benefit. After only the 1st week of care with Dr. Jenkins the pain dissipated, and within a month I felt back to normal. After the first month of treatment I felt so much better; I could sleep better and I had more energy. Dr. Jenkins is great – he focuses on the areas that need adjusting so it’s very effective. I highly recommend him to anyone who wants to feel better!
