A therapist must know this muscle group and its trigger points very well if they are to offer effective solutions to their client’s chest pain, upper back pain, shoulder pain, radiating arm pain or thoracic outlet syndrome, wrist pain, and hand pain complaints.

Sometimes wrist and hand pain come from thoracic outlet syndrome.  We can test for it with a nerve tension test (shown in this graphic). If you want to learn how to evaluate the nerves, this DVD Nerve Mobilization teaches that. http://www.realbodywork.com/nerve/nerve.htm
