Carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS) is an entrapment neuropathy caused by compression of the median nerve as it travels through the wrist's carpal tunnel.
Patients can be diagnosed quickly and respond well to treatment but the best means of integrating clinical, functional, and anatomical information for selecting treatment choices have not yet been identified.
There has been huge debate in relation to the diagnostic labelling of non-traumatic shoulder pain related to the structures of the subacromial space. The diagnostic label Subacromial Impingement Syndrome (SIS), presenting as anterograde-lateral shoulder pain when the arm is elevated, was first introduced in 1972 by Dr Charles Neer and was based on the mechanism of structural impingement of the structures of the subacromial space. SIS has been viewed as symptomatic irritation of the subacromial structures between the coracoacromial arch and the humeral head during elevation of the arm above the shoulder/head and as reflected by the literature is considered by many to be one of the most common causes of shoulder pain.
What is important to understand is that "impingement" on its own, is not a diagnosis, but rather simply describes the mechanism: The compression of the rotator cuff against the anterior inferior aspect of the acromion and the coracoacromial ligament.
There a three main nerves in the hand whose responsibility is to supply and innervate (stimulate action) specific areas of the hand and fingers. They originate in your neck and travel over your shoulder and down your arm to your fingers. Together these allow us to feel pain, hot and cold, fine and crude touch as well as stimulate specific muscles to move individual fingers. Each nerve has a specific dermatome (an area of skin supplied by the sensory fibres of a nerve) and myotome (group of muscles innervated by a nerve) which corresponds to a specific area on your hand. Therefore, symptoms of nerve injury are directly related to the injured nerve. These nerves are:
Spasticity is seen to be a positive feature of upper motor neuron syndrome. This is because it is due to a loss of inhibition of the lower motor neuron pathways, rather than a loss of connection to the lower motor neuron (or other pathways). This results from disordered sensorimotor control of movement due to a lesion of the upper motor neuron which regulate muscle control. Therefore, there is an imbalance of the signals between the central nervous system (CNS) and muscles, presenting as intermittent or sustained involuntary activation of muscles.
All muscles have some tone to maintain function, for example, activation of antigravity muscles to maintain sitting or standing postures. In an individual with spasticity, there is a velocity-dependent increase in muscle tone to passive movement. This creates an inability to stretch muscles or coordinate movements effectively.

The term muscle atrophy refers to the loss of muscle tissue. Atrophied muscles appear smaller than normal. Lack of physical activity due to an injury or illness, poor nutrition, genetics, and certain medical conditions can all contribute to muscle atrophy.
Muscle atrophy can occur after long periods of inactivity. If a muscle does not get any use, the body will eventually break it down to conserve energy.
Muscle atrophy that develops due to inactivity can occur if a person remains immobile while they recover from an illness or injury. Getting regular exercise and trying physical therapy may reverse this form of muscle atrophy.
People can treat muscle atrophy by making certain lifestyle changes, trying physical therapy, or undergoing surgery.
