When To Get It Checked
Transcript

Sometimes people wait too long to see the doctor for their carpal tunnel. You definitely should not wait until your hand is weak. You should not wait until the muscle mass (particularly in the thumb) is going away. If it's keeping you up at night, don't be afraid. See your physician and at least get started on the medical treatment with the roller blade wrist guards (the so-called carpal tunnel cockup splits.)
