Overview

A complete self-care program for those at risk and those already suffering from the leading occupational injury of the nineties. Guided by symptom charts, you select the best exercises for the movement patterns required by your work and learn how to restore the range of motion to overworked hands and arms. About the Authors Sharon J. Butler has been studying the function and structural integrity of the human body for the past ten years. Having spent her career specializing in the correction of soft-tissue injuries, she created this program after developing Carpal Tunnel Syndrome herself in 1991. Not only did she completely eliminate her own symptoms of repetitive strain injuries but she also has helped hundreds of others achieve the same relief, non-invasively, permanently and inexpensively.

2 years ago I was diagnosed with Carpal Tunnel Syndrome. The only options the medical community offered me were rest (can't work and still no guarantee) or surgery. Treatment by the author and the exercises in this book solved all my Carpal Tunnel symptoms and along with other related problems I'd had for years.
