Re: Weight lifting exercise & Carpal Tunnel. Bad?
I read Light at the End of the Carpal Tunnel, and the Carpal Tunnel Helpbook by Scott Fried D.O., and they were great help. I think there's also a book called the Inflammation Syndrome, which tells about all the ways to treat chronic pain and inflammation. I had wrist problems, had surgery, physical therapy, and went the whole nine yards. After surgery, someone told me about pineapple enzymes, and how it helps clear up scar tissue possibly left over from the surgery. I was still having pain, after surgery, and I didn't know if it was from the injury, the surgery or both. I tried the pineapple enzymes, and it worked wonders, but I still can't do repetitious activities with my upper extremities, carry heavy objects, or even think about weight lifting. I heard that once you injure your wrists, they are never the same, and we have to be careful for the rest of our lives not to cause further injury.
