Grip size and repetitive motion are major factors in carpal tunnel syndrome and medial/lateral epicondylitis. A small grip size increases the possibility of carpal tunnel. Increasing grip size will decrease the incidence of carpal tunnel. Also, decreasing the number of repetitions per minute will also decrease the incidence of carpal tunnel and other repetitive disorders in the hand/wrist and forearm. Decreasing the cycles per minute with hand, wrist and forearm activities to 4 or less is ideal. This will minimize the symptoms associated with carpal tunnel and elbow epicondylitis. Check with your client's physician, physical therapist and/or chiropractor to ensure the number of sets and reps in your exercise program will not exacerbate the client's symptoms.
