It May Not Be Carpal Tunnel

JANUARY 01, 2003
The National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health recently surveyed 30,000 working adults about their jobs, any hand and wrist discomfort, and whether or not they had been diagnosed with arthritis. The survey found that people who worked at jobs requiring repetitive bending and twisting of the hands and wrists had a 43% increased risk of developing arthritis. A patient?s ?carpal tunnel syndrome? may thus actually be arthritis.
