Medical Massage For Carpal Tunnel & Thoracic Outlet Syndrome To purchase The New Self Stress Management Massage DVD please click the link above You can purchase the entire DVD at European Cranio-Sacral Therapy, Thoracic Outlet Syndrome, Rotator Cuff Syndrome, Frozen Shoulder, Tennis/Golf Elbow, Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, Post-Isometric Relaxation, Shoulder Rehabilitative Exercise The pathogenesis of thoracic outlet syndrome can be linked with the anatomy of the anterior scalene muscle. The anterior scalene muscle starts from the transverse processes of C3-C6, slanting downward and forward, and inserts into the first rib. When it contracts, the head bends to the same side and forward. The causes of anterior scalene muscle syndrome are: 1. Cervical spondylosis — Spinal nerves C3-C8 provide motor innervation to the anterior scalene muscle. Their irritation or compression evokes increased tension in the anterior scalene muscle. 2. Chronic overload and muscular strain — Chronic physical overload of the anterior scalene muscle or its strain also produce the clinical picture of anterior scalene muscle syndrome. Because the anterior scalene muscle participates in inspiration, patients with bronchial asthma frequently have anterior scalene muscle syndrome. 3. Visceral pathology — The heart and lungs are innervated by the same segments of the spinal cord as the anterior scalene muscle. Thus, chronic cardiac and pulmonary disorders evoke reflex zones in the anterior scalene muscle and are

    I don’t believe in any kind of surgery. I believe if the tissue is alive, it can be help to regenerate and recuperate itself as long as no serious trauma has occurred… or that damage is extreme, that’s why I ask if the symptoms demonstrate that the damage is too great.

    I don’t think that your condition is in a category of irreversible. the matter of fact that this very little that you doing for yourself temporary causing you relief of symptoms. in cases of irreversible damages usually this not happen. what you doing is not enough to sustain results. I believe that my self treatment DVD#1
    and DVD#3 proposing protocol that could be helpful for you. for content view my youtube clips on a subjects.
    Best wishes.

    set an intention for yourself and quite the rest of your mind. sitting in a semi slouching position, preferably in a tall padded backed chair. place right hand on your right guad and relax your arm starting at the base of your skull down to your fingure tips. now your relaxed, take your left hand and massge muscles:sub-occipital, splenius capitus, s.c.m., scalenes, 1-2 heads of traps, levator scapula, anterior deltiod, pec major. these muscles start at the base of the skull down to shoulder.

    I had my girlfriend walk on my arm (full body weight 112 lbs.) for about 5 minutes, from my wrist to near the elbow. She used a walker for balance, but a chair would have worked just as well. It helped my CTS immensely! This works the same as deep tissue massage, but gives you even more Myofascial Release than with a massage.

    I do NOT recommend this if you have an especially Heavy partner.

    Dear ThatVoiceInsideYou.
    If you really suffered from carpal tunnel syndrome then you are lucky not to have permanent, irreversible damage to median nerve that located inside of small size “tunnel”. listen carefully to my explanation and you will understand how dangerous would be walking on projection of carpal tunnel. during my 36 years of experience I learned that you shouldn’t never make the statements like:”gives you even more Myofascial Release than with a massage.”
    Best wishes.

    My partner has suffered from chronic hyperlipidemia for 16 years. A side-effect of the medication she takes is a severe headache from which there is no relief. Can you recommend any massage technique which may help?

  12. mgaft1, 24 March, 2009

    Dear cassinihuygens1971.
    Antilipids medications causing increase in muscular tension including neck and TMJ muscles. Secondary this phenomenon can be the couse for severe tension headaches.
    Massage is the most powerful methodology for muscular tone management. My self management DVD#1 can be helpful. more details on subject could be found if you will view the clip” neck , upper back pain”

    how do i know didi get carpal tunnel syndrome?

  17. specslady1inmil, 28 May, 2009

    usually if you have carpal tunnel your hands will hurt alot and maybe lose some function…all i really know is how you get can get it if you type alot or do something else repeatidly over time that stresses the activity in your fingers and hands.

  18. trisoma1, 28 May, 2009

    …and stresses the muscles in arms, scalenes and scapular area. These areas are factors for carpal tunnel misdiagnoses. We fixed many patients with massage who had unsuccesful carpal tunnel surgery.

    If you are a student and write too much and/or too hard throughout the day it can also cause it. Musical instruments such as guitar or piano as well. Any repetitive motion with your hands.
