Many folks believe Carpal Tunnel Syndrome comes from a wrist issue. This is true; and the bone affecting the wrist is known as the Lunate bone. However, Carpal Tunnel Syndrome can also stem from the sixth bone in your neck being mis-aligned or out of proper position.
There is a simple test to see if you suffer from Carpal Tunnel. Try touching your pinky finger to your thumb. You should be able to hold them together strongly; being able to resist someone trying to pry them apart.....within reason of course. If someone can pry them apart with no resistance whatsoever, you may have a Lunate bone or a C6 cervical bone mis-alignment. Don't worry, these are easy to correct! Once corrections are made in both the neck and wrist, the patient should regain their strength. Repeat the pinky finger to thumb test and see for yourself!
After correction, it is probably a good idea to use cold laser and inspect for inflammation in the area.
Hope this helps!
