The Carpal Tunnel Helpbook

Carpal tunnel syndrome at first affected hundreds, then thousands, and subsequently millions of people.

It was a quiet, yet progressive threat which, in its early stages, seemed easy to control. But once it took hold in the general population, carpal tunnel syndrome became an overwhelming foe causing pain, suffering and disability in millions of patients and their families across the United States and throughout the world.
