Carpal Tunnel Syndrome in Pre & Post Partum Women

I recently had the pleasure of meeting chiropractor Dr Debbie Wright of Thrive Chiropractic Wellness Centre at my most recent Reachd course (I recommend all of their SEO courses by the way).  She was sitting across from me and after I mentioned PumpEase™ hands-free pumping supports during our "what do I do and why am I here" introductions, she asked me for my business card.  She explained that she has many, many patients that suffer from Carpal Tunnel Syndrome.

I suffered from Carpal Tunnel Syndrome after (not during) both of my pregnancies.  They were very different experiences:  with my first daughter, I got it in my left wrist pretty much as soon as she was born; with my second daughter, I didn't get it until 1 year postpartum, however, I got it in both wrists and I still have problems today (and my youngest will be turning 2 on January 2nd).  I remember asking my GP about why pre and post partum women suffer from CPS, and even though his wife had suffered so badly that she had to have the surgery on both wrists, he couldn't really answer me.

I asked Dr Debbie "why" and she explained it so clearly and logically to me that I asked her to share her knowledge with all of you.  Watch her in action below...
