Book Description

June 19, 2001 0738204552 978-0738204550 1
There are more than 500,000 carpal tunnel surgeries done annually in the United States but approximately 30 percent of these patients will be no better as a result. The truth is, most physicians are too quick to consider surgery as the first line of defense against carpal tunnel and other repetitive-strain injuries. In this comprehensive guide to recognizing and treating these debilitating conditions, Dr. Scott Fried takes a strong position against surgery and offers self-healing alternatives that have better results. From understanding the signs and symptoms at an early stage to modifying work and lifestyle; from proven alternative therapies and helpful medications to nutrition and exercise, The Carpal Tunnel Helpbook provides authoritative advice and practical, up-to-date information to spare many patients the ordeal of surgery to treat their injuries.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very helpful!! February 16, 2008
Format:Paperback
This book focuses on entrapped median, radial and ulnar nerves: How they get trapped, and what to do about it. Here's a book that explains it better than any hand surgeon or nuerologist will. Also, you'll learn what it is a professional can do for you and what you can do for yourself. This book really explains it all much better than many other books (and I've read many newer ones). I was so happy to get it, I stayed up into the wee hours and devoured it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Skip the surgery; read Scott's book first! September 30, 2011
Format:Paperback
About this time last year, I had all the symptoms of carpal tunnel--in both wrists, but particularly in the right. Went to my regular Doc, who said , "Yes," looks like carpal tunnel...then launched me on two full months of expensive tests. Meanwhile I checked out several books at the library on CT, including Scott's.
Mid-December--and about $6K in medical tests later--the prognosis comes back that I do, indeed, have carpal tunnel; surgery is recommended immediately for the right wrist, to be followed soon by the left.
Instead, I started the regimen of stretching exercises in Scott's book. And in just a few weeks. the CT was nearly gone. Today--October 2011--I have had no return of CT. And I still do the stretches.
Obviously, we're all different. And this is not to usurp a doctor's call. But this is a great read and place to start. It really worked for me--and I hope it can for you. Thanks, Scott.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing ideas! October 16, 2011
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
It is funny how you go to the doctor and they have nothing to offer but surgery and this book has actually got things to be tried to heal the ailment! I am glad that someone out there has more ideas than the current medical practice, however, I have also tried a lot of other things with no success so far, but the man who wrote this book actually explained things to the people like me that are not so medico-savvy! He has ideas I have never heard of!

1.0 out of 5 stars too many typos! May 22, 2013
By grumpy
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The kindle version of this book has so many typos that it is completely unreadable. These include many formatting, spelling and word substitution errors. For $10 a download you would think that they could afford to hit spellcheck.

2.0 out of 5 stars This book needs serious editing May 21, 2013
By Btrace
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I am only through the first chapter so far and the author seems to know what he is talking about but this book has a ridiculous amount of misspellings to the point where it gets confusing and hard to read. It is blatantly obvious this book wasn't edited and it is too bad because it kills the authors credibility a bit for me. I'm going to continue trying to decipher this book and hope I get something out of it since I spent the money on it.
