Here’s another take, especially apt for overexerting guitar players: the capo tunnel syndrome. A , Italian for “head of the fretboard”, is a strap-on bar that restricts and shortens the strings on a guitar in order to change the tuning. Capo tunnel syndrome may follow from the inflammation and key-change of the nerves in the strummer’s wrist.
It is too bad I have capo tunnel on both of my hands, my guitar playing is over…
Stratocaster straight talk
Vastly commoner are those who feel that cars stalled in the tunnel, awaiting the tow truck, are restricting nerve traffic.
I am having an operation for carpull tunnel syndrome tomorrow and wondering if anyone has had a similar op? If you have, how long is the recovery period, when can you drive etc etc?
R: It’s Carpal Tunnel syndrome!(if you’ve been carpulling I’m not surprised your wrists are knackered)
Thank you all so much for the Car-Pull-Tunnel, eye glasses and facial wrinkles. Plus I am on my thirty second box of clean ex. :-)
