Carpal tunnel syndrome
Published by BUPA's Health Information Team
June 2003 Carpal tunnel syndrome is a fairly common condition that occurs when there is too much pressure on a nerve in the wrist. There is usually aching, numbness or tingling in the thumb, some of the fingers and sometimes part of the hand.
About carpal tunnel syndrome
Carpal tunnel syndrome affects about 1 in 100 people at some point in their life. Men and women of any age can develop it, but it is most common in women in their 30s, 40s and 50s. Sometimes carpal tunnel syndrome is triggered by a person’s occupation, and can lead to the person being unable to work. Most cases of carpal tunnel syndrome can be prevented by stopping or reducing the activity that stresses the fingers, hand, or wrist, or by changing the way in which activities are done.
Where is the carpal tunnel?

Ultrasound picture of a child with Down's syndrome in the .week of pregnancy Initiative for people with Down's Syndrome Dr. med. Bernhard Möller und Isabella Möller Kiefernweg 26D - 33014 Bad Driburg Germany to the german version of this site I n December 1998 founded association in Germany, which wants to inform the public about and support people with Down's syndrome. D own's syndrome is no disease, but a variant of the human chromsomes with the chromosome 21 present in each cell three times (instead of otherwise twice). It is usually not hereditary, but emerged by chance. Children with Down´s syndrome show a slower development, which extent is individually different. No one knows, which possibilities of development exist with appropriate help. W e would like to encourage affected parents, to accept their child as it is, in order to say"Yes". We fight for these right to live and will never let the human dignity of our sons and daughters be undermind. We think it is not acceptable, that today in 98 % pregnancy is interrupted after prenatal diagnosis of down's syndrome.You must remember, that according to the law in Germany an abortion is possible from medical indication until the moment of birth.

159. Downs Syndrome Leicestershire Group
Information about the support and advice network offered by this parents' group. Includes details of resources and services available to families affected by Downs syndrome.
Home INFO Toy library Speech Therapy ... Links HOME PAGE The Leicestershire Downs Syndrome Group has recently become a charity in its own right. For over 20 years it was a branch member of the Downs Syndrome Association, a national charity with its Headquarters in London. Due to policy changes of the National group Leicester and many of its other 90 branches are now standing on their own two feet, whilst remaining affiliated to the Downs Syndrome Association. The Leicester group is run by a dedicated team of unpaid volunteers, mostly parents, but all who have a child with Down's Syndrome as a member of their family. The Leicester Group was founded in 1981 by a small group of mothers who met during the early days of their children's lives, to give each other the support, that was unavailable elsewhere. From there the group has grown to provide a large support and advice network to many families right across Leicestershire. Work is ongoing, as our volunteers strive to carry on providing the current services in place and aim to expand into the future with new projects.
