The life style of people today revolves around technology use; even jobs are a lot more connected to computer use than they were 20 years ago. Hunching over computers, tablets, and cellphones is more and more present, with elevated shoulders which are protracted and anteriorly rotated with short and hypertonic pectoral muscles, scalenes, sternocleidomastoid, and suboccipitals. People experience pain in their arms and hands which could be misdiagnosed as carpal tunnel syndrome. Pins and needles sensation in their fingers, tingling, numbness, feeling of heaviness and fullness in the arm and fingers is becoming a part of their life.
So if you want to help the majority of your clients, you have to know how to assess this condition. After this, you should know how to massage scalenes, how to do pincer grasp for SCM, joint play for clavicle, manual lymphatic drainage for arms and after all to recommend perfect home care exercises to be able to treat their symptoms.
Our duty is to help our clients the best that we can. Don’t miss a chance to be one of the best in your profession.
