@mikeycat I can empathize with your carpal tunnel pain. I suffered terribly with it after years in IT using a computer with probably very bad ergonomics. When I was in San Francisco I went to my orthopedic specialist (from a previous elbow dislocation revision) and he referred me to PT. To my amazement they started working on my neck, shoulders and back! I had incredible medical massages there for several sessions and it helped immensely. Of course they also worked on my hands with massage, strengthening exercises and other things but they said often carpal tunnel and other nerve compressions in the hand originate much higher up. So Crickethip is on to something. . They also used TENS and some sort of ultrasound treatment. I ended up much better and not needing any release surgery. It comes back if I over use my hands but doesn't cripple me like it used to. Good luck.suffering terribly with her hands so when I would visit I would do a very light touch massage, would work on her neck and shoulders first then ease down her forearms and then the hands.
