Many forearm, wrist and hand issues are referral symptoms from shoulder and neck muscles and/or nerve entrapment happening at the neck and shoulder. You might have one or both of those things causing your symptoms. Pec minor in the front of the shoulder and the scalene muscles of the neck can compress thoracic outlet nerves that innervate muscles in the forearm, wrist and hand. Many shoulder muscles as well the scalene muscles in the neck can also produce referral pain in the forearm, wrist and hand. Based on an individual's specific pain complaints and using our CTB protocols, therapists assess and treat the many possible contributors to forearm, wrist and hand pain. The CTB approach has resolved these pain issues for many people.
