Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

Tuesday, February 7th at 7pm (free) Do you experience pain, tingling, or numbness in your hands after working at the computer for long periods of time? Do you have a friend or family member who has told you they have carpal tunnel syndrome. This lecture will help you gain a better understanding of carpal tunnel syndrome and related overuse injuries. What most people think of when they hear “carpal tunnel” isn’t necessarily a problem with the wrist. The following topics will be addressed: * What is carpal tunnel syndrome? * Other injuries that can mimic the symptoms of carpal tunnel. * How to tell if you have true carpal tunnel syndrome. * How you can prevent carpal tunnel and other injuries. * Why surgery isn’t always the most appropriate treatment. * What to do if you start feeling the symptoms of carpal tunnel syndrome.

Nutrition for Peak Performance

Tuesday, February 21th at 7pm (free) You can have the perfect biomechanics, optimal skeletal alignment, and the strongest muscles in the world, but if you are not taking in the right fuel, you’re leaving your body prone to fatigue (which is one of the most common causes of soft tissue injuries.) Attend this lecture to learn what foods to eat and which foods to avoid. We’ll discuss the role of protein, fats, and carbohydrates in the diet, and we’ll talk about optimal timing for consuming each of them. We’ll offer suggestions for preparing quick, healthful snacks that you can throw in your bag at the beginning of a busy day, and you may even leave with a few new delicious recipes to try!
