About us

Hi and welcome.

Carpal Tunnel Helpline - about us - Team

Carpal Tunnel Syndrome is one of the most painful forms of physical stress. Yet very little is really known about this condition and how it develops.

Nowadays, the medical profession acknowledges that there is probably no one single cause of carpal tunnel syndrome – although there are several underlying conditions that make some people more susceptible than others to carpal tunnel syndrome. The job one does, an existing health condition, even pregnancy are now seen as factors that can have an influence on the development of carpal tunnel syndrome.

Carpal Tunnel Syndrome is a complex subject. I know because I suffered from this condition for many years. Fortunately, I found a solution – without having to resort to surgery. Having suffered for so long, it was only when I decided to undertake my own research into this condition that I discovered how little was really known amongst the healthcare profession about the causes of carpal tunnel syndrome …. and how readily people were to recommend surgery.

That is why I created this website. I made it my mission to tell everyone what I had discovered … to provide the information necessary for people to understand carpal tunnel syndrome, what causes it and the options open for treatment.

My aim is to provide an unbiased, independent review of all that we know of carpal tunnel syndrome … plus no-nonsense advice on the options open for treatment. There are so many myths and misunderstandings about carpal tunnel syndrome that I felt it my responsibility to debunk the most ridiculous ones.

I have included, here, information on all the treatments that are currently available to relieve the pain and discomfort of carpal tunnel syndrome.  I am aware that what worked for me may not work for you. So I give you information on all the treatments so that you can decide which ones you want to try … and find the combination of treatments that is exactly right for you.
