Out of your hands – Carpal Tunnel Syndrome (CTS) – published in NWI.COM

Your fingers tingle and feel numb. Pain encircles your wrist and radiates all the way up your arm. The tingling, numbness and pain wake you up at night. Tennis players can have these symptoms. So can computer operators, grocery store cashiers, reporters, assembly line workers, secretaries, fast food cooks and jackhammer operators.

This diverse group of people may work at very different jobs in vastly different settings, but it shares one job hazard – repetitive, especially twisting, motion of the wrist and forearm that can lead to a condition called Carpal Tunnel Syndrome….

“When the wrist is twisted or subjected to a repetitive motion, the bones press against the nerve, causing inflammation or swelling. Fluid can build up in the carpal tunnel area. All that makes the already tight space even tighter and further compresses the nerve. In some cases, the carpal or wrist bones can become partially dislocated or misaligned, said Timothy Durnin, a chiropractic physician at the Lansing Chiropractic Clinic, Ltd.  All that can lead to those annoying, painful symptoms of CTS. And as the symptoms increase, even picking up a can of soda pop may become nearly impossible, Durnin said. That clumsiness is often what brings patients in for treatment, Dreyfuss and Durnin said.”

A Shot in the Arm – published in NWI.COM

“Those who don’t get inoculated may wind up with a low-grade fever (below 101 degrees), chills and fatigue, among other symptoms, in December or January, health officials said. The bout could last up to three weeks, said Dr. Timothy Durnin, a chiropractor at Complete Wellness Medical Center in Lansing. [currently Lansing Chiropractic Clinic and Wellness Medical] It may feel like last year’s flu, but it isn’t, he said. ‘These viruses are smart. They mutate. Each year, it’s a new virus,’ he said. Also available are pneumonia vaccinations, which protect against viral strains of the disease. Health officials recommend them for anyone over age 65 and call it “a lifetime dose.” The inoculation is available for younger people, but lasts only 10 years.”
