Thank-You.

On the surface an increase in CTS claims does seem strange. There are a couple of possibilities that may be contributing to this increasing trend. 1) Typically reduced hours and slower production trends means changes have been made to job tasks. People tend to be performing more and different movements. This opens up new opportunities for poor postures and biomechanics to become part of the process. 2) More time away from the job means more time to enjoy life and take advantage of hobbies. Sometimes these hobbies are repetitive (knitting, chopping wood, etc.) in nature, sometimes they are vibratory (motorcycling).
Either one of these two changes could be enough to contribute to CTS symptoms.
